The RISE is excited to announce that we’ve added yet ANOTHER exceptional coach/trainer to our team, Sean Branch!
Growing up in the Berrien County area, Sean attended Lakeshore High School, playing and excelling in both football and baseball.
In football, his team made it to playoffs three consecutive seasons, where he received All-Conference for both his Junior and Senior seasons, including All-State Honors in 2018.
In baseball, Lakeshore’s team achieved two back-to-back state titles in BOTH his junior and senior seasons, where he also received All-Conference as a center fielder.
Following his high school career, he took himself out to Golden West College in Huntington Beach, California to play college football, where AGAIN, he received All-Conference as a defensive back in the SCFA for his 2019 season.
Sean initially reached out to US with the pursuit of getting involved with The RISE simply based on everything he’s heard and seen about us and what we do here... So when we asked Sean, “Why The RISE?”, he simply said, “I still desire to be around sports and great people, where I can learn and understand the game in new ways, which brought me to The RISE... A place full of inspiration and knowledge. The RISE has blessed me with an opportunity to be a part of not only a team, but a family that motivates everyone that they encounter.” We’re not crying... You’re crying. Okay, but seriously... Who’s got a tissue?
All jokes aside, that’s the kinda person we want in our corner. That’s what makes a RISER. And we are SO grateful for Sean’s desire to grow as a leader in this community, and we’re honored to have him on our team. Because of Sean’s vast knowledge in multiple areas, he is joining The RISE team as our first “Floater” Coach, where he will assist in baseball lessons, agility training, offer football lessons to any and all those who are interested, and so much more!
Welcome to The RISE Family, Sean! We’re blessed and honored to RISE with you! 🔆👊 #TogetherWeRISE
