His father, Joe Street, Sr., passed away from a sudden heart attack when the Logan senior was in the sixth grade, giving Street that much more motivation.
"Every snap, every day, every minute, my dad is all I think about," Street said. "What I wouldn't do to have him get to watch me play. He loved the game of football and taught me everything I know about the game."
Street indicated losing his dad at such an early age made him and his brother, also named Joe, grow up much faster than expected.
"It was very hard," Street said. "Losing my father at age 12 made me wake up. You don't have time to be a kid anymore. It was time to grow up and be a man. There was no more time for fun and games."
Street, who also plays basketball for Logan, learned everything he knew about sports from his father, and to this day, still remembers one of his favorite Christmas presents.
"My dad was a basketball coach and I was always a gym rat," Street said. "Where he was, I was always right behind. When I was eight, my Christmas present was a chalkboard with X's and O's."
Street plays with the mindset that any play could be his last, especially with what happened to his father, and the fact that last week the Wildcats lost senior Ty Yeager, to a serious injury.
"One minute Ty is being the leader he always has been, and the next, he is being wheeled off in a stretcher not knowing if he will ever play again," Street said.
"It's a blessing to play football. It makes you think when you are out there. I try and play to my full potential every time I play on the field. I always have to show up and should never take a play off."
Street indicated the motivation plays a very important role in not just his life, but everyone's as well.
"Motivation is so crucial for me, and always has been," Street said. "It leads people down the right road and leads to success. When I'm motivated, I feel like I do better in life and perform better."
Street's father played at Bluefield high school and then at Concord collegiately, and Mullins hopes that's exactly how his son follows in his footsteps.
"He really wants to play at Concord," Mullins said. "That is where his dad played. We are going to do everything we can to get him there."
Before that, though Mullins hopes Street continues to win in his highly successful career at Logan.
"Brynden wants to be remembered as a part of the first team to win a playoff game at Logan," Mullins said. "It means a whole lot to him.
"It's the only thing he has wanted to do. There is one goal left unturned. We haven't been able to do it yet. We have got that opportunity Friday night."
