Brandon Cole is junior at BPHS and participates in many after-school activities. During the fall, you can see him out on the football field, and in the spring, you can see him behind the plate, catching.


Cole is a very charismatic teen who loves to be around people. You can see him walking around school with a big smile and constantly cracking jokes. Not to mention, he is an amazing back cracker that he takes so much pride in.

Cole is the only child from parents Kristen and Dave. Dave Cole played football here at BPHS, and Brandon took over his legacy and number. On the football field, he wears No. 55 in honor of his dad.

Evan Bromley, one of Cole’s teammates, said, “So much man love for Brandon, great guy right there.”

Cole leaves such a great impression on people that even a host at Primantis said, “I’on even know you like that bro, but I’d throw down for you.”

Last year, he was named Second-Team All-Section for catching, and he aspires to become First-Team this year.

Not only does he work hard with his sports, but he hits the books just as hard. He has GPA of 3.8 and takes his studies very seriously.
