Hayden Brandon, an 18-year-old Kuna High School graduate, checked in this week to summer training camp with his new team, the Eastern Oregon University Mountaineers. Brandon will compete for a starting linebacker position ahead of the 2019 season.
Brandon was a 4A Southern Idaho All-conference selection in 2018. He plans to study business and communications at Eastern Oregon University.
The Mountaineers, who compete in National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), will open their season in Caldwell against the No. 15 College of Idaho Yotes.
