Championship teams are constantly pushing each other, pushing for better, and pushing forward, but just for a moment, the bandits will take a step back and appreciate the man who got them here. "Joe Brannen...Oh Man."That's right, Iron Man,Jeremiah Turner is speechless, because when a coach means this much to a team, no amount of words seem adequate. Jeremiah explains, "A thousand words man, he's an upstanding guy, super polite, super gentleman."
In fact we haven't even touched on the game of football yet, "Joe, ain't too far out of the game itself, said Bandits wide receiver, Lemans Casimier. Joe is constantly using his knowledge as a player and applying it to the playbook. Lemans explained, ''sometimes he takes reps at practice, and he see's things, he'll see the ball in the air, before we come out of our breaks and that's just knowing the game." Knowing the game has earned Joe the head coaching spot, but his faith in his players may earn him a league championship. “I’m just really appreciative that he has recognized my talent, enough to keep giving me opportunities,” said Bandits wide receiver Le’Juan Edwards. Turner had this to say, “Just to keep bringing us in because he believed in us, that stood out more than anything.”
After this a story book season like this, there is not much left to say. Jeremiah had this final comment, “Joe Brannen, love him” Le’Juan also said, “I can do nothing but be grateful for what he has done for me. Finally Lemans ended on this, “I’m proud of him as a man, a coach, and as a ball player.”
