Brandon High is a physical Middle Linebacker for Coffee County High School in Douglas, Georgia.
The rising senior helped lead his team to a playoff victory last Friday night, and he has Coffee County at 9-2 on the year, marking the fourth straight year with 9 or more wins.
Brandon feels there are a few reasons for that.
“I feel like we get better every week, and even every day,” High said. “I feel like this is what separates us from other teams; this is what makes us different. I believe that and the fact that we work hard every day is what will get us the ring this year.”
Through the first eleven games, High has already proven he is a force on the field, as he is second in the region in tackles, with an impressive 94 tackles on the year!
Of those 94 tackles, High amassed 47 solo tackles, 5 tackles for loss, 2 sacks and 7 quarterback hurries, while averaging 8.5 tackles per game!
Wherever the football is, you can believe High will be there with it!
“I pride myself in the ability to get to the football,” High said. “I always hustle to the ball and cause problems for opposing teams.”
Standing at 6’0, 225 pounds, High is able to bench an impressive 315 pounds! He also runs a 4.9 in the forty-yard-dash.
A dual-sport athlete, High is also a wrestler for the Trojans and he has earned All-American accolades in the sport.
His physicality in wrestling has certainly translated onto the football field!
Outside of the measurables and the stats that High possesses, he wanted to let us know what takes him to a different level than other players.
“What separates me, is the fact that I cannot be outworked,” High said. “I will outwork you every single day, in anything that we compete in.”
Sounds like High is harnessing his inner Will Smith!
High also gets it done in the classroom, as he has a current 3.3 GPA, which is more than enough to qualify him for college ball.
While this highly touted junior does not have any offers yet, look for them to roll in before his career is complete!
High and the rest of the Trojans will take on Calhoun this Friday night in a playoff game.
