The student-athletes of the NAIA are ultimately what make the NAIA. We have so many special student-athletes at this level, so I wanted to create a piece that would highlight those individuals. Brandon Durnell was one of the first players to follow the twitter account, so I thought he would be the perfect kid to do our first Player Spotlight. The NAIA prides itself on it’s Champions of Character slogan. After talking to Brandon, for the first time ever, I can tell you that he defines what a Champion of Character is supposed to be. Brandon was just a sophomore this past season at Spring Arbor, so he will also be apart of the merger next off-season, and I hope to keep a relationship with him and hopefully he is willing to help contribute to other pieces in the future. He’s a great kid, who picked up a new fan. I can’t wait to follow him for the next two seasons.
