Bryant picks junior college
Trinity senior Lashawn Bryant, a three-year starter along the defensive line, will play football this fall at Garden City Junior College in Kansas on a full scholarship.
As a senior, Bryant (5-10, 245) was selected to the Observer-Reporter's Elite 11 and he made first-team All-Big Seven Conference as he led the Hillers in sacks, tackles for loss and quarterback hurries.
"To do the things has did as a nose guard is almost unheard of," Trinity football coach Ed Dalton said. "He's a menace. He's the first kid since I've here that we had to take out of practice so we could practice."
Bryant, who scored 910 on his SATs, was being looked at by various Division II and III schools within the region.
"He did have opportunities at other schools but the question is would he have been (an academic) qualifier," Dalton said. "I really think he is a high-end talent."
Garden City Junior College competes in the NJCAA and former Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots running back Corey Dillon is among its former players. The Broncbusters have placed players at Oklahoma, Boise State, Texas Tech and Nebraska.
