One On One Feat: Brandon Slater (Metro Sixers)

 Brandon Slater (Metro Sixers)

Metro Sixers returned to the Spotlight circuit this year and made some noise in the process. They also recently won the Maryland Invitational and a lot of their success is due to the play of wing guard Brandon Slater. Slater is currently the leading scorer on the Spotlight circuit for the 7th Grade Division. We got a chance to holler at this scoring machine and here’s what he had to say.
