In 2015, Branden found himself state side for most of the year. Once again he played the summer league with Concordia SC. They won the championship after an individually successful performance. He recorded 19 goals and 14 assists in just 12 games along with the Golden Boot award and the League MVP.
In the fall of 2015, Branden took a few coaching jobs near his hometown. As his season finished and games were scarce, he continued to train at 4.40 Performance (South of Akron). With a full time job, additional coaching in the evenings and training, Branden found himself in a tough routine. However, when the seasonal job started to slow down and teams were finishing up their seasons, he took the opportunity to get back to Europe.
For one month, in November, Branden traveled all over Germany to tryout for teams and make connections with players and coaches. This led to another Germany visit in January; a month after he was home for the holidays.
Now, Branden joined a 6th league club; who has aspirations to promote into the 5th league. The team currently sits in 5th place in the league and Branden is off to a start with 1 goal and 2 assists in less than a game and a half.
