Brad Burris

Teacher: Physical Education & After School


Brad joins Stokes after working with youth in after-school programs at the DC Promise Neighborhood Initiative and Eagle Academy. He was born and raised in Hammond, Louisiana and as you can expect, is a die-hard New Orleans Saints fan (WHODAT!). He's been a long-time resident of the DMV after graduating from Howard University (HU! You Know!) with a BS in Sociology of Sports.


Brad has worn many hats in his professional career, from entrepreneurship to working in professional sports with local NFL greats. He arrived at Howard on a baseball scholarship, playing on the last HU Baseball team, and continually feeds his passion of the game by coaching a Boys 15U team with DC Grays RBI, and also volunteering time as a board member for DC Grays Baseball. When he's not working with youth in school, or on the field, Brad is a devoted husband to Heather, and father to Autumn age 4, and Bradley, Jr age 2. He and his family reside in the District.
