Brett Swango is living the digital nomad life as one of Collier’s stat and analytics wizards
He grew up on Main ST USA, bailing hay for local farmers, learning work ethic and that s****y physical jobs are not in his future
Recognized early that literature/english weren’t his forte,
Numbers were where he excelled
Football was huge, but his HS career was a slow goer, not finding success until his senior year

Knowing that game, he moved to Colliers and started crunching numbers under their “roof”
