Brandon Nathan Tyson
Anderson, South Carolina
Friday night lights end in tragedy
He was a Patriots and Longhorns fan, just like his mom. He was close to his whole family; his cousins looked up to him. His little brother and sister called him “Big Bubbie.”
A student and athlete at Wren High School, he played on the football, baseball, cross-country and track teams. He aspired to become a deep-sea underwater welder.
He had just left a football game between his school and Easley High School on a Friday night. On Sept. 8, 2018, Brandon Nathan Tyson, 17, died of a gunshot wound to the head at a friend’s house in Piedmont, South Carolina.
