Nicolas Garners MVP Honors

Santa Ana, CA standout defensive line commit, Brandon Nicolas played in the Cal-Florida game this past weekend after a season that saw him garner Serra League MVP honors and was named one of the four captains for the Cal All Star team. Irish Eyes caught up with the 6'5", 260 lb lineman to see how the game went for him and what he will be doing in the off season.

Playing with and against some of the top talents from two of the nation's hotbed for football talent, Brandon Nicolas had some nice comments about his past week with potential college football stars. "It was a lot of fun," he said. "I got the chance to practice with a lot of the best guys in California."

Being part of the Mater Dei football program that has produced countless Division I football players and plays one of the toughest schedules year in and year out, Brandon knows what he needs to work on and the game just reaffirmed that for him. "Overall it's still the same," he said. "Technique and quickness. I just need to work harder to make it in the next level."

With his High School football career officially over now, Brandon is keeping himself busy and active, until he has to report for school later in the fall. "I might be doing the shot-put for Track and Field," he said. "But I'm going to be running a lot and start lifting again at Mater Dei with the Strength Coach and especially when they (Notre Dame) send me their workout.
