Brad Lester

Brad Lester, a high school and college student, is influencing the sports industry. A former Auburn graduate tells the media about his passion for helping athletes, his days as a football star, and his future.

Brad Lester has increased her participation in the sports training industry and has become one of the best in the South, with her personal experience in football, high school, college, and career.

A graduate of Parkview High School, he manages elite athletic performance sports development projects and works with students, professional athletes, college students, and youth.

“It’s a very good thing,” said Lester, 34. “My focus is the success of all athletes.” “The community really supports it. I think I came from this area.”

When he went to Parkview, Leicester said he enjoyed the community spirit and saw the school community still devoted. Lester is currently working with a prominent athlete who is also a student at Parkview. The biggest of them is Chris Carson, who runs for the Seattle Seahawks. “It’s great that Chris has become a leader and a player today,” Lester said. Georgia also runs Georgia Tech Running Back and Parkview Alumni Christian MalloyUniversity — where Lester went on a full scholarship — went in the history record books as one of the best Running Backs alongside other great legends.

Football After Parkview

Brad Lester spent five years at Auburn University, before gearing up for the NFL. He worked went to training camp with two teams, including the Houston Texans and the Chicago Bears. Later, he headed for a brief stint in the Canadian Football League. Earlier this year, Lester said he has now been in contact with a few Junior Colleges and Division 1 programs to discuss potentially coaching at the next level. “If the right opportunity comes,” Lester added, “then I will pursue that level .”

Meanwhile, Lester is boosting his work with individual players and elite level athletes. over his time in the sports industry Lester has trained or mentored major level athletes like Alvin Kamara running back -New Orlean Saints -, Peyton Barber running back -Tampa Buccaneers-, Darius Slayton -New York Giants- and Chris Carson running back -Seattle Seahawks.

Not only does he pride himself on training players that do well on the field, but he also prides himself on caring about the lives of his clients he works with. To that end, trainers also attend the games of those they work with.

“I like to see our guys go to the next level — not just NFL,” he said.

That next level could be anything from academics, college football, others sports, and more, Lester added. He also hopes the youth he works with learn something from him and his experiences — how he’s been on and off the field.

“I talk to them about everything,” he said. “They understand it’s a business once you go to college. It’s not a game anymore. They understand if you don’t get your schoolwork, they’ll get you out of there.

“I keep it 100 percent with them, so it’s no surprise.”

Who is Brandon Rembert? His Emergence as One of the Top Baseball Players in the entire Southwestern Athletic Conference




Brandon Rembert is a senior outfielder for the Division 1 Alcorn State Braves

Brandon Rembert is a senior outfielder for the Division 1 Alcorn State Braves of the Southwestern Athletic Conference. The team’s right fielder has been acknowledged as one of the best players in the conference. The Florida native is even considered an MLB Draft Prospect for the 2021 Draft. So, how did he get to this stage in his career?  Let’s go back to his roots.

Brandon Rembert was born in Pensacola, FL and attended Booker T. Washington High School.  Rembert wasn’t a highly-touted prospect out of high school and wasn’t ranked that high by many scouting sites.  Perfect Game had him only ranked as only the 71st ranked outfielder in Florida and the 530th best outfielder in the entire country.  Prospectwire, another scouting source, had him ranked as a 0-star prospect out of 5.  He was by no means a high profile player out of high school.  Rembert didn’t garner many accolades during his time at Booker T. Washington High School either.  His senior year he was named to the Perfect Game Pre-Season All-Region team as an honorable mention.

For Brandon Rembert, he always had potential, but couldn’t piece it all together quite yet in high school. Rembert states, “I think I always had the potential, but I don’t think all the pieces were together yet in high school.  I felt like I had above-average tools, but just hadn’t fully tapped into them yet.” After graduating high school in 2016, he then signed to play college baseball at NAIA Faulkner University in Montgomery, Alabama. He spent his entire freshman year there playing on the program’s junior varsity team.  He then decided to depart from the program after his freshman season. Rembert says on his decision of leaving, “I just didn’t think that the program was a great fit for me or for what I wanted for my career at the time.  I was playing on the JV team and felt like I wasn’t in the right place there.  I felt like my talent wasn’t being maximized there so I decided that it would be in my best interest to transfer.”

After his brief stint at Faulkner University, Rembert then transferred to Coastal Alabama Community College in Brewton, Alabama. “I just thought that going to a junior college was my best decision at the time.  I could use my time there to really hone in on my skills and continue to improve.”  Rembert played 38 games during his spring season there, where he batted .274 with 10 RBIs and 13 runs scored.  After his time at Coastal Alabama, he then committed to play at Division 1 Alcorn State University in Lorman, Mississippi.

Rembert felt like committing there was a great decision and felt like he could make an impact immediately there. “I knew they were losing a lot of outfielders and that I would have an opportunity to fight for a starting spot immediately.”  Rembert started to finally find his stride during his junior campaign at Alcorn State.  He did not only win a starting job, but he had a breakout season his junior year. He started to turn a lot of heads when he hit for a team-leading .345 batting average that year and had a .462 on-base percentage which was 5th in the entire conference. Rembert also had an outstanding batting average of .417 against conference teams, which was 6th best in the entire conference. “Everything just kind of clicked for me that year.  I started to gain a lot of confidence at the plate and started to perform at a high level.”

After that season, Rembert started to become a well-known and feared player throughout the entire conference.  Many started to recognize his talent and potential. “After the numbers, I put up that season I started to get a little attention for the MLB Draft.”  Rembert also started to garner numerous honors. Prior to the 2020 season, he was named a SWAC Top Player to Watch by the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper, Perfect Game Preseason All-SWAC selection,  Preseason BCN All-HBCU 2nd team selection, and a Pre-Season All-Southwestern Athletic Conference First team selection. One of the biggest honors he garnered was being recognized as an HBCU Player to Watch for the MLB Draft by Black College Nines. “That one probably meant the most to me.  To be even mentioned as an MLB prospect is a huge honour for me and makes me want to work even harder.”

Rembert’s 2020 season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic after playing just 12 games, but he will be returning for his last collegiate season there.  Now all eyes are on him and he is hoping for another breakout season in 2021.
