Message from the Athletic Director

As another exciting year in Bryan High School Athletics begins, I’m excited to welcome each athlete, parent/guardian, coach, and supporter to the Bryan athletic program.

2019-2020 was a year of “New Beginnings” our department was focused on building a strong foundation for success. This foundation is based on excellence in coaching, developing a sense of pride in our athletic programs, creating a strength and athletic movement program that will enhance our athletes ability to excel on the playing fields/courts, and instilling a strong work ethic and toughness that will benefit our student athletes throughout their lifetime.

We strongly encourage participation in athletics because it provides our students with important lessons for life, such as teamwork, self-discipline, hard work, and courage. By offering a wide variety of programs – 14 sports, our students can find a place where they can apply their talents at a high level of competition and strive to meet their potential and goals. Through hard work, and discipline we envision our athletic program reaching heights never previously obtained.

Our Bryan community has high standards in regard to sportsmanship and conduct. We expect our students and coaches to uphold these standards at all times. I would ask that you, as a spectator, reinforce these standards when you interact with the opposing teams, coaches and contest officials.  The athletic department is grateful to our parents and members of  Bryan Bear Community that provide unrelenting support, energy and enthusiasm for our student-athletes and coaches.

I thank you in advance for supporting the BHS athletic program and the student-athletes we serve.  I look forward to seeing you at our athletic competitions and your unwavering support of our student athletes and coaches.

As Always, Go Bears!!!
