Quote from Head Coach Joe Hadachek: "Brenden is one of those stories that makes it all worthwhile to stick and stay for four years. Pre-season he was listed as a backup at corner. Due to Zempel's injury, he was promoted to a starting role and never relinquished it. He has a knack for being in the right spot at the right time. The icing on the cake was the championship game with Kuhn making the big pick and having the game smarts to cover up the ball with both arms before going down. He is going to be successful in life just like he was on the football field."
