There is a lot of High School football talent in the Pacific NW and every year we seem to put out more then our fair share of star players who go on to be All Americans and top tier players. It is essential each year that celebrate our best as they carry the torch for the rest of the athletes trying to make it on. In essence it is because we have athletes like this that more and more schools look at the Region for talent. Last year Lake Stevens High School QB Jacob Eason wowed National Analysts on his way to Georgia and at years end and after an All American performance that was awesome he was crowned best in the Class for the Nation.
The 2017 Class is loaded too. Guys like West Linn (OR) athlete Elijah Molden, Graham-Kapowsin (WA) Offensive Linemen Foster Sarell, and Juanita High’s (WA) speedster Salvon David Ahmed are all expected to lead an explosive class and all should be All Americans. Others are rising up to that Top Tier and one of them is Eastside Catholic (WA) star Tight End Hunter Bryant.
Hunter is a massive target and had an amazing season for the Crusaders going for almost 1,200 yards an 17 TD’s from his Tight End position. He is reminiscent of Austin Seferian-Jenkins of Gig Harbor HS (UW- Tampa Bay) in regards to his frame and ability. He is 6’3″ and 240 lbs and very fast. One of the things we love about him is his soft hands and ability to run over defenders. This guy is a Nightmare to stop once he is in the secondary. He drops very few passes and has shown a durability and fluid style of play that is inpressive.
We checked in with Hunter, who we believe is All American material, to find out how things were progressing.
“I have offers from UW and WSU. I was named on the first team MaxPreps Junior All American as a TE as well,” offered Bryant.
We grabbed his Junior Highlights below for your review. Hunter is a great option for any team looking to add that special talent and will lead the 2017 Class out of the NW as one of the best we have to offer. Best of luck to Hunter and all our NW kids as they move into the future.
