Bryson Abraham of Jennings High School is proving to be a tremendous athlete. The 5’10”, 175-pound
senior plays football, baseball and runs track for his Bulldogs.
While football is Abraham’s favorite of the trio, he has had plenty of success off the football field. On the
diamond, he plays centerfield for the Bulldog baseball team.
On the track, he used his 4.47 forty speed to help boost Jennings to 4×1 state championship last year. He
also went to state for long jump and triple jump.
Looking to bring his talents to the next level, Abraham has attended several different football camps,
including TCU, LSU, McNeese, ULL and ULM. While Abraham said no college really stands out as a true frontrunner for him, he did say he would like
to stay relatively close to home and mentioned a few schools in the running – Louisiana Tech, Ole Miss,
LSU and TCU.
Abraham is working hard in the gym to get his body ready for college ball – benching 285, squatting 420
and cleaning 235.
“I just love [football],” Abraham said. “I always think about football even when it’s in track season or
baseball season. It’s something I desire.”
The young athlete said some of the best games of his career came against Sam Houston High School.
“With Sam Houston we play a good team,” Abraham said “It’s pretty much always a good game against
each other. Every year they’re at the top of the district.”
Abraham also said he wouldn’t mind another shot at Northside High.
“Northside beat us in the playoffs last year, so we want to meet up with them again,” he said.
While Abraham is focused on the rest of his high school days, he said he was a big Saints fan, and called
for a repeat of last season’s championship ending.
“They’re going to take it all the way I hope,” Abraham chuckled. “I think they can repeat.”
