HUMBLE - Under the Friday Night Lights in Texas, there’s plenty that grabs our attention. With all that action, it’s very easy to miss what happens on the sidelines.

That’s where Brennan Muscat is always hard at work.

Brennan serves as a student trainer at Kingwood High School, making sure everyone on the field is hydrated and stays healthy.

“I feel like I am a part of the team,” said Brenna. “I get that feeling because I help them out if anything goes on”

“He’s been doing this ever since he could walk…he’s become the trainer because kids like him so much”

Brennan’s father, Jay, is the team doctor and each game, the two stand together.

From an early age, Brennan, who is autistic, has been drawn to sports. In fact, if you talk to him, you’ll know within 5 minutes just how much he knows.

Over the years, that knowledge has helped him become a better trainer.

In addition to his work with the football team, he also helps the basketball and baseball teams, each of them making him feel like he’s one of their own.

Off the field, he’s been working with the organization Autumn’s Dawn, a group based in Humble that helps young adults like Brennan transition into life beyond high school.

He’s met with college coaches; he’s even taken a tour of our KHOU studios to see what opportunities the sports industry can provide.

Not letting his disorder define who he is.
