Congratulations to Brandon Dickerson, the captain of the Westminster High School football team, for receiving 1,866 votes out of a total 4,200 and being named the ASPIRE Athlete of the Week for Week 2!
“Brandon is the epitome of what it mean to be a student-athlete,” explained Glenda Bates, the athletic director at Westminster High School. “He is team captain for football and our leading rusher. He also is team captain for baseball. And his leadership spills into the classroom.”
On the field, Dickerson has been great this season. Through the first three weeks of the year, he averaged 108 yards per game on the ground, while also scoring seven touchdowns.
In the classroom, he’s been even more impressive. Brandon carries a 4.25 GPA, is in the IB Diploma program and has been on the principal’s Honor Roll the last three years.
In the community, Brandon is the camp leader for the Hyland Hills Rec Program Operation.
“Brandon is the president of our Letterman’s Club and his leadership, strength of spirit and positive attitude is contagious in our building,” Bates added. “He is very influential with our younger athletes and strives to move forward with every opportunity.”
Brandon’s interview with Will Petersen will air on the Mile High Sports Show on FM 104.3 The Fan this Sunday (10/4) in between 7 and 9 a.m., but we’ve also got a sneak peek below.
