Our sports director Ryan Peterson has covered Bryant since his days at Lufkin and talked with the East Texan after practice on Friday. "It is amazing you know playing high school football and making it to the NFL is every kids dream man," Bryant said. "Being in this position seeing you, remember seeing you in high school you know it means a lot you know."
Bryant added, "You know I tend to get emotional as I speak because it's always been a dream and I can't believe it. Sometimes like right know I get lost for words just because you know how amazing of a blessing it is."
Head coach Jason Garrett also shared his thoughts on Bryant, "He's gotten much more mature as a person," Garrett said. "He handles the game in a much more professional manner than he did when he first got here. It's showing up in his play."
