After spending his freshman season, between the Junior Varsity team and off the field with injury, Brennan came back his
sophomore year ready to contribute through special teams and scout team, working to get on the field any way he could. By his junior season, he was starting on, the punt/punt return team as well as both the kickoff/kickoff return teams. Brennan continued to work hard and exemplify leaderships on and off the field being voted a team captain for his senior season. Brennan was able to learn the strength of working within a team by pushing himself to be better and to committing to goals larger than himself.
