Brandon is finding the way!

GENEVA_The burden of being the “man of the house” at eight, 10, 12 and 14-years-old was a heavy load for the athletic boy growing up in the city of Ashtabula. He dealt with the experience of dealing with the power being shutoff in the single-parent household by participating in sports big time. Brandon Hanna’s close bond with friends help ease the struggle.
“My father was present, but not as much as a child or son would like,” Hanna said. “It was tough.”
Hanna is the Recreation Coordinator for the City of Geneva, Youth Leader at The City Church, and 2018 All-Star Quarterback for the Erie Express of the Gridiron Developmental Football League. The Express made the playoffs with a 8-0 record and finished with a 9-1 record after losing 14-7 in the conference championship game.
Hanna was trying to find a sense of self when he met The City Church Pastor Tony Boyd. Hanna felt the love that the Pastor had for the people around him and was immediately interested in Boyd’s take on life, love and God.
