Bryant, a North-South All-Star pick, was also all-region and all-state. he even was the Class A lower-state lineman of the year.
Hemingway coach Greg Lawson said he is very proud of Bryant.
“We wanted to do this (the signing ceremony) and let him know how proud of him that we are and what he’s accomplished because this is a big accomplishment,” Lawson said. “Anytime that you go to college and somebody pays for it besides yourself, that’s a big deal.”
