What is your name? 

Brandon Shed

What is your Height/Weight? 

6’3 205

What is your position? 


Where do you play college football? 


Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field? 

Every year when I return home from school during the summer I work football and basketball camps. I also work with some younger kids outside of those camps because I never had someone older to look up to and teach me how to play football. I just want them to have someone they can look up to and not run the streets and stay out of trouble.

What was the hardest college class you ever had to take?

The hardest class I have taken is computer science 124. Very long hours in the lab coding.

Where are you from? 

I’m from West Palm Beach Fl

Who is your role model, and why? 

I look up to D.Wade because of how he puts his team first. He’s never been the highest paid player during his 12 years with Miami and never complained about it. Hopefully he comes back to Miami, we need him.

Did you play any other sports growing up? 

I played basketball 

Did you play any other positions in football? 

I played Safety, corner, Running back, D line, Quarterback, pretty much everything except kicking and punting, but i’m sure I can learn.

At your position, what separates you from others? 

My ability to track and win the jump ball. I love jumping for the ball and ripping it from the DB’s hands.

When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?

I look for how well the DB turns his hips and if he’s aggressive or not. 

Who was the toughest player you ever faced? 

I’m from Florida so I played alot of tough guys, but I have to say Travis Rudolph who plays at FSU. He’s a beast and I look up to him.

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why? 

I would say T.O because people say I look like him. I like how aggressive he was and I’m working to be as big as him.  

What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it? 

High school. I went to a high school where I didn’t know anyone at first and the school was know as one of the top schools in the state of Florida. I struggled with grades but my teachers stayed with me allowed me to stay after hours to make sure that I fully understand the lesson that we covered that week. Blessed to have teachers like Mr.Anderson who took time out of their evening to work with me when he could have just went home to be with his family. 

Do you have any pre-game rituals? 

I love to listen to Chance The Rapper and chew a lot of gum during the game. Gum may be the death of me. 

What is your biggest strength? 

My height. Not too many DB’s at this level can Jump with a 6’3 receiver

What is your biggest weakness? 

I never really had a real Wide out coach until this year, so i’m just learning how to run routes and how to stack and stem defenders.

aIf I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say? 

That i’m a hard worker and I won’t let this is a once in a life time opportunity slip away, especially coming from the D3 level.

Who was your favorite player and/or NFL team growing up? 

I’m a huge Dolphins fan and I love Cam Wake and Ronnie Brown when he played. 

If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose? 

I would chose D.Wade, Cam Wake, and Brandon Marshall

What will be the first big item you buy once you are in the NFL?

I want to buy my parents a house. They went above and beyond to make sure I have food to eat, clothes on my bad, and a roof over my head.
