Alumni Spotlight: Justin Brantley

Justin Brantley

This month's Alumni Spotlight is Justin Brantley, who graduated from the Hudson Senior High School in the Class of 2009.

What are you doing now?
Playing professional baseball as a pitcher in the Cleveland Indians organization.

What made you choose the field that you are now in?
Playing baseball has always been my ultimate dream. I was lucky enough to earn a D1 athletic scholarship to Siena College to play baseball where I graduated with a degree in business management.

What was the most important thing you learned at the Hudson City School District?
The most important thing I learned in high school was the importance of  building relationships with my teachers and classmates. 

If you could give any advice to Hudson students, what would it be?
If I could give any advice to the students it would be to make sure they don't leave high school with any regrets or what ifs. Take advantage of all of the resources that you have available to you in high school. A lot of them might seem stupid or pointless to do but believe me, you will regret not going the extra mile now later in life.
