He said UE coach Wes Carroll and the Aces staff is an excellent fit for Kelley “because they have seen him in the past few falls and summers in the area and at national events. They know Brandon’s abilities and where he needs to develop.”
When asked about being home-schooled, Kelley said his mother, Terri, thought that was the best way to go for him and his brother, Austin, 15, and sister, Alyssa, 10.
“She felt she could school us better that what a public school could,” Kelley said.
It obviously hasn’t hurt his athletic career.
“I still have four of five months of playing time,” Kelley said.
