Brandon Rush has been playing wheelchair basketball for the Charlottesville Cardinals since the 1990s. He is also the assistant coach for Sportable’s youth basketball team, The Spokes. Josh and Brandon start at the very beginning of his time with adaptive sports all the way up to the present day. Brandon talks about the mentors he had coming up in the wheelchair basketball community plus how he’s able to serve as a mentor our youth athletes. We love the perspective of adaptive athletes who transition to volunteering and coaching. Finally, learn all about the great work Brandon does at the Independence Resource Center (http://charlottesvilleirc.org/).
