Independence senior Dylan Bryan had himself a banner senior year as a wide receiver leading the Southwestern 4A Conference in pass receptions and yardage.  With his good hands, excellent speed and deception after making a catch propelled him to being selected to the All-Conference team representing the Patriots.

The Patriot wide receiver had a very productive 70 receptions for a total of 1,077 yards and 8 touchdowns for Independence during this seasons football campaign.

For Dylan this achievement is a real honor to be selected to the All-Conference Team in his senior year.  It’s an accumulation of hard work and focusing on the details to improve ones athletic ability to perform.  This is an honor he may have dreamed about, however, an accomplishment he did not fully expect to receive when he started playing football at Independence.  “I simply could not have accomplished getting nominated during my senior season without my coaches and teammates,” said Dylan.

What was very rewarding was playing alongside his younger brother Trevor Bryan who is a sophomore starting wide receiver who will have two more years to develop and mature in his position.  “The guys on the team were just great, the entire offensive line, the defensive unit, and our quarterbacks who were able to get the ball downfield all made a huge difference,” said Dylan.

Regarding the coaches, according to Dylan this years coaching staff was the best he ever had during his time at Independence.  Coach Natoli, helped him become a better person, while coach Cureton is an excellent receivers coach perfecting his skills in running routes and concentration on the finer points to take his game to the next level.

Dylan would like to thank his family especially his mom and dad for all their support and giving him the opportunity to chase his dreams.  Also, he wants to thank his grandparents, sister Summer, brother Jake and girlfriend Grace Holmes for all their encouragement.

He is an excellent student with a 4.69 GPA who has been in the engineering program at Independence.  However, he is thinking of going in another direction in college and plans to major in biology, including sciences and mathematics.  Dylan is having discussions with Gardner Webb, Davidson, Jacksonville, UNC Pembroke, Presbyterian, Catawba, Emory and Henry and Concord College.
