Kenneth Brinson has always been a motivated and dedicated athlete. When looking for a college, Brinson was looking for a place where he could pursue the sports that he was passionate about. At the end of his search, he determed West Point was where he would be able to actualize that goal while simultaneously being challenged in a variety of other ways.
"Football and track worked well together. I competed in football and track in high school and I really love both sports, so it's been a blessing to be able to do both." Brinson has taken full advantage of being able to pursue these sports, excelling in both areas. Thus far in track he has shown strong throwing talent, garnering a pair of Patriot League titles and two Army-Navy individual first-place finishes. In his football career he hasn’t missed a game in his three years. In 38 games he has 102 total tackles and 8.5 sacks.
Despite these successes, being a two-sport varsity athlete is just as difficult as one would imagine, all while juggling his academic and military responsibilities. There are sometimes challenges that arise that Brinson has to face, but lucky for him he has a team of people who support him not only at home, but at the Academy as well.
