My name is Jonathan Branner. After 12 years of soccer, I started playing American Football in Germany as a Kicker/ Punter. I received a full-ride scholarship to be the Kicker for Briar Cliff University (Iowa) in 2020. I had very successful years there breaking and creating many school records. I will soon finish my Bachelor’s degree and I am looking for a new home and a new challenge (Master’s degree). I have 2 years of eligibility left.

What makes you different?
Stoicism plays a big part in my life. Greek and Roman philosophy shows us that there is nothing that can't be achieved.
Self-Discipline is my second name. It is a choice. Being self-disciplined affects your surroundings, it is like a disease spreading.
I am not just in love with detail, I am literally addicted to it.
I am a perfectionist (probably the German in me), which comes in handy as a Kicker.
Why do you want to compete in college?
I already competed for 3 years. I want to get my Master's degree and compete at a higher level. I want a new challenge.
Get my Master's degree (MBA)
Compete at a higher collegiate level
Teach other young men how to live a stoic lifestyle and achieve the impossible.
Gain more knowledge and experience about Kicking. Thinking about starting a Kicking Camp in Europe after college.
