BROWNSVILLE – By now, Senior Powerlifter Brandon Esteves should be preparing for a run at a state title.
Due to precautionary reasons, Esteves is just waiting.
Ranked at the top of the 220-pound weight class in the state, Esteves was the favorite to take home the state title in his senior year. Due to concerns surrounding the novel coronavirus, Esteves aspirations must be put on hold.
Rather than wallow in self pity, Esteves understands the importance of prioritizing health over personal glory. He will, however, continue to prepare for the potential of rescheduled meets.
For both his strength and his solidarity, Esteves has earned the right to be this week’s DHR Health Athlete of the Week!
