His total all-purpose yards onf 1,278 rank high in MPSA record-keeping for the season.
“He will be very hard to replace hard to find a guy that can run it and catch it as well as Brandon does. Such a tough kid, he played with pain every week and would not come out of game. He has a lot of ‘want to’ inside of him that will carry him a long way,” said Copiah head coach Scott Cline.
Joining will Greer will be senior quarterback Daniel Sims, son of Mr. and Mrs. Danny Sims of Crystal Springs and Mrs. Sharon Townes of Brandon, Mississippi.

“Daniel is a three-year starter–a veteran–that has won two South State AA Titles and one State AA Title in 2006. He is a smart decision maker. His record as a starter is a remarkable 32-8. We will miss him around here, an he will be a hard one to replace, as well,” Cline said.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. this Friday December 7, 2007 in Clinton, MS at Mississippi College’s Robinson Hale Stadium.
