Brantley Blows Up Summer Camp Circuit

If the summer is any indication, Charlotte (NC) Victory Christian has every reason to be excited about Tehvyn Brantley stepping on to the field.

Brantley, a big play receiver who recently transferred to Victory Christian, has been blowing up all over the camp circuit this summer.

Since Chippewacountry last spoke with Tehvyn, he has been to Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Wake Forest with his team for a 7 on 7 tournament and the highly competitive B2G camp in Los Angeles.

Brantley's performance at the B2G camp opened a lot of eyes.

"The B2G camp was a really good experience," Brantley said. "The competition out there is supposed to be unheard of. It was great competition and I went up against a lot of great players. I just went out there to do my thing and show my God-given talent."

The Wake Forest tournament was also a great showcase for Tehvyn's talents. He attended the tournament with his team and posted an eye popping ten touchdowns over the course of the day.

"At Wake Forest, I just wanted to go out there and give it my all," Brantley said. "My coach was running a lot of the offense through me. I was a great day out there."

Recently, Tehvyn received his second scholarship offer from the University of Buffalo. With his high school season looming, he is not intending on rushing his decision.

"It's not as hard to balance it all out as everyone thinks it is," Brantley said. "You have colleges looking to make such a huge financial investment in you so it is really a great honor. I'm just going to go out there and do my thing."

With the season getting closer, Brantley is excited to be a part of his new team.

"I can't wait for the season to start. Our team has a lot of talent," Brantley said. "Having guys like Justin Foxx and Curtis Porter on my team is awesome. They are the kind of players I will be able to brag about having played with them one day."

With a 37 inch vertical and 4.45 forty yard dash time, opposing defensive coordinators can prepare themselves for some major headaches dealing with Tehvyn in the fall.

"I'm ready for the season to start," Brantley said. "Victory Christian is a great team and I look forward to helping take it to a whole new level."

While he stands at only 5-foot-8, Brantley more than makes up for his lack of height with his blazing speed, vertical jump, and excellent field vision. He is an ideal slot reciever for any team that runs a spread.

"I know I probably wouldn't fit in too well in a two back, pro-style offense," Brantley said. "However, if you put me in an offense like a Missouri or Central Michigan set up, I know I could make a lot of big plays for a team."
