ATLANTA -- When Army All-American defensive end and No. 13 overall prospect Ray Drew signed with the University of Georgia in 2011, the Thomas County Central football team was left with some big shoes to fill. After a position switch last fall, the Yellow Jackets found a worthy replacement in 2015 defensive end Austin Bryant (Thomasville, Ga./Thomas County Central).
The 6-foot-3, 240-pound sophomore made 106 tackles, two forced fumbles and a pass broken up, and, looking back, the end of his competition for playing time under center looks like a blessing in disguise.
