Adrian Branch and Michael Morrison are the two newest Pro Speakers here at Sports World. They may sound familiar to you because they are in fact returning to Sports World. Both Adrian and Michael were Pro Speakers in the late ‘90s and early 2000’s.
Adrian Branch played guard/forward at the University of Maryland where he was the third all-time leading scorer. Adrian went on to be drafted by the Chicago Bulls in 1985 before going on to play with the LA Lakers the following season. In 1987, Adrian played with the likes of Magic Johnson and Kareen Abdul Jabbar as they went on to win the NBA Championship. Adrian’s pro career also included time with the NY Nets, Portland Trail Blazers and Minnesota Timberwolves.
Along with speaking for Sports World, Adrian is an ESPNU College Analyst. He is married to his wife Kim and has three children: Adrian, Kylie and Kori.
Michael Morrison played shooting guard at Loyola University where he was the pre-season player of the year in 1988. Michael went on to have a career in the NBA with Phoenix Suns, Washington Bullets/Wizards and Dallas Mavericks.
In addition to speaking to students for Sports World, Michael is the Talent Development Director of Nike Pre Draft camp. He is married to his wife Harleda and has four children: Tylia, Johanna, Nicholas and Mikayla.
A Look Inside a Unique Outreach
Over the past several years, I have had the privilege of meeting many Sports World teams and Team Captains all across the US. Each Outreach is unique, and the Father works in incredible ways through His people. I am so thankful to be a part of this powerhouse group who impact students and faithfully challenge them with the Message of Hope!
Although each trip is different, one recent outreach stands out. Dan Kessler of Langhorne, PA served as the Team Captain. Dan’s approach was different, and I was honestly a bit skeptical at first. All our programs were scheduled to take place in private schools. Personally, I relish the opportunity to take Good News to those who do not have much exposure to the Truth: prisons, inner city schools, athletic groups, and Boys and Girls Clubs are some of my favorite places to share.
