BRANNON BURKS

SOUTH / CENTRAL TX REGIONAL MANAGER

Meet Brannon Burks, our dedicated Regional Turf Manager overseeing South and Central Texas. Brannon's journey in the turfgrass industry spans an impressive 16 years, marked by a passion for quality sports field management.

His story with Sports Field Solutions began when he yearned to return to his Texas roots after spending three years in Maryland. Besides the draw of the Lone Star State's culinary delights, Brannon's return was fueled by a rich background in turf management.

Brannon's early experiences include seasons at a golf course and a memorable stint with the Fort Worth Cats minor league baseball team in 2009. Subsequently, he moved to Maryland in 2010, where he played a pivotal role as the Head Groundskeeper for the Frederick Keys, the High A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles.

One of Brannon's key takeaways from Maryland wasn't just about managing fields; it was meeting his wife, a highlight that surpasses any professional accomplishment. Throughout his career, he's been deeply moved by the generosity and mentorship of industry veterans, shaping his approach to challenges and opportunities.

His time with the Frederick Keys holds a special place in his heart, marked by unique experiences like taking ground balls from former Orioles Mike Bordick and Mike Devereaux, as well as hosting baseball legend Pudge Rodriguez during rehab appearances.

As a native of north Texas, specifically Valley View, Brannon is committed to family and community. Alongside his wife and two kids, he embraces various activities while nurturing his love for grilling, reading, and exploring creative outlets like writing and photography.

An avid baseball fan, Brannon's allegiance lies with the Texas Rangers. His fond memories include summers traveling to watch minor league games and witnessing stars like Rick Helling and Rusty Greer before their major league careers. His enduring favorite player is the legendary Nolan Ryan. The recent World Series win by the Rangers brought immense joy to this lifelong baseball enthusiast.
