Brandon attended grammar school at Conyer in Visalia. His family relocated to Exeter, California where Brandon attended middle school and Exeter Union High School. He was a varsity football player. Brandon then attended College of the Sequoias.
Brandon followed in the footsteps of his grandfather and uncle and joined the Air Force. He completed boot camp at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.
