Author of "Loving the Game When The Game Doesnt Love You Back", motivational speaker, mentor and coach Brandon Sweeney spent most of his young years playing the game he grew to love. Born in Akron, Ohio, he joined a peewee league at the age of eight. During his elementary, middle and high school years, his talent became evident to many on the sidelines. With his goal set to play professionally, Brandon then played two years at Clarion University but later transferred to North Carolina A&T State University. When he was injured in a scrimmage and lost a kidney in 2006, his aspirations were crushed. He returned from Akron to complete his academic studies. Brandon holds a Bachelor of Arts in Construction Management from North Carolina A&T State University, and is currently pursuing a graduate degree in Professional Counseling.
I love to write about real life issues such as a boy or girl growing up fatherless, an athlete who dreamed of playing Professional ball but never made it, how to help young boys become men, or about encouraging fathers to engage their child and not merely provide for them, or challenging coaches to step up and be an example for a fatherless child. So, to sum everything up I love helping people who may have gone through what I've went through and need help getting through it.
