Brandon Siler, founder of LPS, was born in Daytona Beach, FL. He moved to Orlando, Florida, at a young age, and attended Evans High School in the lower socio economic neighborhood of Pine Hills. He graduated from Evans in 2004 with a 4.2 and committed to the University of Florida to play football for the Gators. In the 2004-2005 season he earned SEC Freshman Player of the year while maintaining a 3.6 GPA. In his junior year his Florida Gators went on to win the 2007 BCS National Championship and he elected to turn pro after that season. Brandon was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in 2007 and played 4 seasons with the chargers until his contract expired in 2011. In 2012 and 2013, he played football with the Kansas City Chiefs. After 6 seasons, Brandon decided to retire from the NFL and start the next chapter of his life.
“Two years after I retired, I started to experience some of the negative effects that football had on my body. After being a manager at a Fortune 500 company for two years, I decided that I would leave the company and truly seek a resolution to these problems. I admit I was scared to leave a good financial situation and a great job, so I started to seek out assistance that would give me time to get back on my feet.
I was surprised to find out how much assistance was actually available to retired players. You would think that would make me happy, but instead I became irritated and outraged that more players didn't know about it. I didn't know rather to be upset with the NFL, NFLPA, or at myself. The process to get most of the assistance was extensive and the knowledge of this assistance, often times, was stuck inside of a thick book that we would not read in its entirety. I needed to figure out a solution to this problem. I wanted to help bridge the gap between player’s awareness and the leagues efforts. That's when I founded a company whose mission would be to serve that exact purpose.
Legacy Pro Sports is an organization that helps former NFL Football Players prepare for life after the game, emphasizing on all the key elements to get one’s personal, financial, and medical affairs in order. I am not an agent, attorney, or a financial advisor. I am a former NFL Player that has found my "calling" after football, and that's to change the way my brothers retire."
