Aliquippa High School is a relatively small school known for producing a myriad of outstanding football players. The pipeline between the University of Pittsburgh and "The Quips" has been well documented. When asked if he thought about continuing the pipeline to Pitt, he quickly stated, "Yes, part of me thinks about it. Aliquippa players have gone there and they have been treated well."
Lindsay earned first team All-Conference on offense and defense as a junior. He was named honorable mention All-State as well. Brandon is capable of running a 4.6 forty-yard dash. He plays running back; linebacker and nose tackle for the Quips.
When asked what he was looking for in the school of his choice, he stated, "I want to go to a school with a chance of winning the nation championship. They have to have a winning tradition. Playing time is important to me as well."
"I know Pitt loses three or four linebackers after the season. There's a possibility I could get there and play quickly."
"I'm going to make a few more visits and possibly make a decision before the season. Right now I'll probably go back to Pitt, West Virginia and Ohio State."
