Name: Brennan 
Hometown: Mentor, OH
What you do to give back?
Last season, Brennan played on a 7/8 flag football team in Mentor, Ohio. Brennan does not let his age deter him from giving back, as he continues to lead his teammates by constantly encouraging them and shows up early to set up for practice and leaves late to pick up. Great job Brennan, way to lead by example!
