WATCH BRANDON’S HIGHLIGHT VIDEO

 I have had the absolute honor and privilege to coach Brandon Wulff for the last 4 years.  Brandon possesses all the tools to be a major league prospect; obvious power as he led the state in HRs last year, can hit for average, cannon for an arm, and runs exceptionally well for a kid Brandon’s size.  We have clocked him as low as 6.7 in the 60 yd dash, but I believe he is even faster on the bases and in the outfield.  His instincts have improved every year and has really developed a plan at the plate. 

Anybody watching Brandon on the field can immediately see his talent, but that talent is only a fraction of who Brandon Wulff is.  First and foremost Brandon has tremendous respect for his parents, his teammates, and coaches.  He is one of the first players to the field and the first guy to pick up a rake or  hose.  Brandon always listens to his coaches and is willing to try adjustments when they are recommended.  Brandon is a terrific teammate, he is well liked by the entire team and always supportive of his teammates.  He will lay down a bunt, hit the ball on the ground, steel bases, and any other little thing to win which a lot of power hitters don’t do.

Brandon may excel in the classroom even more than on the field.  His grades and test scores speak for themself, but I have really been impressed watching him communicate with his teachers and administrators.  He is very mature for his age and always communicates to me and his teachers when there are athletic/academic conflicts.  More than any other player I’ve coached, Brandon understands that baseball is a small part of life and he has other great plans in case baseball doesn’t work out.  It is no surprise that Brandon committed to Stanford, where he will do great things on and off the field.  The Stanford community will be proud to call Brandon a Cardinal.

The thing I’ve noticed most the last couple years is Brandon’s exceptional work ethic and desire to excel.    Watching him workout and put on 25 lbs is a great indicator of his work ethic.  He goes  100℅ everyday in practice and still finds time to hit the weight room.

Brandon is very popular at Bishop Gorman, but is well grounded and knows his priorities.  He is a young man that puts God and his family first.  His academics and desire to learn always come before baseball.  I’ve even witnessed him many times tutoring his teammates.  Brandon exercises other talents as well, including being an outstanding pianist.  Sometimes I’m not sure where he finds the time to do everything he does but I know its because he understands his priorities and can manage his time better than most adults.  Brandon has an amazing family and has really picked up these great qualities from his parents.  I can truly say that he is player that I’ve been blessed to coach.  I’ve learned as much from him as he has from me.  He is why we coaches coach, to get the opportunity to work with absolutely impressive young student athletes.

Brandon has partnered with Juan for Home Runs that Help

9 year old Juan Ballesteros is in the middle of fighting for his young life.   Juan has Acute Myeloid Leukemia which is the second-most common form of leukemia in children.  AML is primarily a cancer of the bone marrow and lymph nodes.  Juan is currently undergoing chemo treatment and is on medication to control the swelling of the mass.

 Juan’s prognosis is unknown though the type of cancer he has is life-threatening.  Juan will spend the next several months in our hospital receiving treatment for this deadly disease. 

Juan is in excellent hands and receiving the best care at Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC, the only hospital in Nevada that is staffed around the clock with in-hospital, Board Certified Pediatric Critical Care and Emergency Medicine Physicians.

Despite Juan’s health and the painful treatment he receives to try to recover, he is an inspiration to those around him as he is always ready with a quick smile, positive attitude and love for life that he shares with those lucky enough to meet him.

Juan’s favorite sport is baseball and he’s a soccer fan too.  He is looking forward to getting better so he can get back to school, sports and enjoying time with his family at home.  He is fortunate to have such a loving, supportive family to help him stay strong.
