Talladega, Ala. - Talladega College Men’s Basketball Guard Brandon Peters (#23) is receiving national recognition for his talents on the court. Peters has been selected as a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) 2013-2014 Division I Men’s Basketball All-American.

NAIA Commissioner Steve Martin announced the names of players from around the country to be named All-American. All of the selections are made by the All-America Committee and comprises a First, Second, Third and Honorable Mention Team. There are 10 members on each of the first three All-America teams.

Peters and the Talladega College Men’s Basketball team recently battled for the national NAIA Championship in Kansas City, Missouri. President Dr. Billy C. Hawkins says the team’s accomplishments continue to amaze.

“We are proud to have Brandon represent Talladega College on a national level,” said Hawkins. “He and all of our players on both the Men’s and Women’s teams are constantly striving for excellence on the court and in the classroom. These players are about the win, and Brandon’s latest honor exemplifies that.”
