Brandon Merritt was born in Sacramento and raised in Elk Grove. I attended Elk Grove High School where I played on the Men’s Volleyball team as an outside hitter. Along with coaching for CRC, I also coach club. For Legends Volleyball Club, I coach women's indoors, boy's indoor for summer as well as girl's sand volleyball. I have also coached for Christian Brothers High School as their JV boy's volleyball coach. I love to coach for Cosumnes River College, as well as go out and recruit after practice at high school games. After high school season is over, I also travel and go recruit during club tournaments.
