Bryant leaving Greene Central for Havelock

The press conference is tomorrow but word leaked out yesterday about it so I'll go ahead and let everyone know that Greene Central is losing its outstanding football coach to Havelock.

Jim Bob Bryant called me last week to tell me, but asked I wait until Monday's press conference announcement at the school. I can't say I'm surprised that he's moving on. After all, Bryant is a tireless worker and still fairly young. He became the youngest coach on a Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas staff in December. He has led the Rams to the playoffs in each of his five years and won the 2-A Eastern Plains Conference championship in 2003 and 2005.

Bryant, who will remain at the school until the end of the school year, has organized Shrine Bowl combine camps each offseason and will host two more this spring. There's no telling how many miles he's driven his players trying to get them a college scholarship offer.

He will be missed around these parts. Check wilsontimes.com this week for a complete story on Bryant's decision and who is successor may be.
