Standing nearly six feet, four inches tall and weighing in at 260 pounds, Cameron Brickle II is quite the accomplished athlete.  Cameron, or “BIG C” as he is affectionately referred to at Harambee is the number one rated defensive football player in Pennsylvania and a top ten rated player in the United States.

Recently, Cameron was invited and played in an All-Star football game which highlighted the skills and talents of the top middle school players in the country.  During that game, Cameron’s skills were so dominate that it has already garnered college football scholarship opportunities from some of the best football programs in the country including the SEC, ACC and Big 10!

Beyond his athletic prowess, Cameron is an outstanding student maintaining a 3.0 grade point average.  Even more impressive is his character as he carries himself as a gentleman and model student with a strong moral compass. He also demonstrates strong leadership skills as he is part of our student leadership program affectionately known as “The Black Shirts”.

Cameron Brickle, a true example of Harambee’s core value of GREATNESS!
