I haven't really noticed it, but haven't paid much attention. My youngest bro wrestled Terry's son a couple times approximately a year and a half ago and we beat him 18-3 and pinned him the 2nd time they wrestled... Terry wasn't in his son's corner for some reason, but kept his cool real well by the gate throughout the matches. In both matches, Terry's son had Pablo Ubasa and what appeared to be Lincoln Mcllravy in his corner as his coaches... my bro had... (drumroll)....rico in his corner. It was weird coaching my bro in those matches vs. those guys. He did maintain that infamous Brands "stare" while his son was wrestling, though. Man, those guys are intense to the point where it is scary. I just started noticing Terry in his son's corner within the last year or so. He has progressively been displaying more and more intensity in his son's corner, but it hasn't been obnoxious or anything from what I've noticed.
I think Tom Brands has a son coming up, Tom Brands Jr. It'll be interesting to see how that kid does. Terry's son is pretty decent, placed 5th at state in 2012 as a 6th grader and 3rd at state in 2013 as a 7th grader. He's gonna be a bad ass when he hits high school....strong as an ox. Barrel-chested.
