Position:Head Coach

Long Beach has always had talented players, but the Marines in recent years haven’t lifted up to expectations. Brand made sure that didn’t happen this year. A master motivator, Brand showed his team a picture of the last title-winning squad before the start of the Michelino Division finals. He made sure they stayed out the penalty box and won another county title.
