The 6-foot, 149-pound junior won the MHSAA Class 7A state meet this past season, breaking the tape in 15:41.92 and leading the Pirates to a second straight state title as a team. Bryant also clocked the state’s fastest 5K by a prep boy last fall at the Jesse Owens Classic Gold Race, crossing the line as Mississippi’s competitor at the event with a personal-best 15:24.44. He won the Class 6A individual title as a sophomore.
Bryant has maintained a B average in the classroom. He will begin his senior year of high school next fall.
Bryant has volunteered locally at junior high track meets and by helping elderly neighbors in his community with yard work.
