Bryson going to Grambling State
By BARRY BURLESON
Tedarian Bryson, a leader at H.W. Byers on the court and in the classroom, is taking his skills to a Division I school.
Bryson has signed a basketball scholarship with Grambling State University in Louisiana.
He averaged 21 points a game, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocked shots a game for the Lions his senior season. And he’s the salutatorian of the Class of 2009.
“Tedarian is a talented basketball player, but he’s a standout student, too,” said Sylvester Kilgore, head coach of the Lions. “He has taken advantage of his God-given ability, and it has paid off for him.”
Grambling State plays in the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC). The Tigers are led by head coach Ricky Duckett.
“It’s an honor to have this opportunity to play at the next level,” Bryson said.
“This means a lot to me. I wanted to be able to set an example for the younger kids in my school and community, and I thank God for this opportunity.”
He said his decision to go to Grambling State was based on values.
“We share the same values – me and the coaching staff there,” Bryson said. “When I went for a visit, they made me feel comfortable.
“We’re on the same page. They’re focused on academics first, too. Their priorities are making me a responsible young man and getting the best of my abilities out of me.”
Bryson, the son of James Bryson and Ruby Nunnally, was named the district’s most valuable player this past season and the district’s best defensive player the last two years.
