Brandon, congrats on your new job with the Licher Baskets Baren. How good a feeling is it coming back to Germany?
I feel good about coming back to Germany. This is where i started my career so its a comfortable feeling
You will be playing in the lower division PRO B. You had experience playing in the PRO A with TV Langen. Will you be setting big goals since you performed very well years ago in the German PRO A.
Of course goals will be set for this upcoming season. I am confident that our management, coaches/players, and myself will work together to accomplish what we set.
