It’s a respectful and humble culture that leads to success on a variety of spectrums, but that doesn’t mean that we’re going to shy away from championing an individual who had a truly impressive performance within the week.
We’ve teamed up with the good people at Pettus Automotive to bring you a feature that will highlight one student athlete’s outstanding individual performance every week. Whether on the gridiron, golf course, diamond or hardwood, there is always someone doing something special. And we thought you’d all like to know about it.
This week the honor goes to Jobe Bryant, the uber-talented, multi-sport athlete from Central Park Hills, who stepped into an unfamiliar role in Week 3 of the football season. With the starting quarterback Casen Murphy out sick, Bryant stepped up and took on a new challenge.
Filling in at signal caller, he led the Rebels to a 43-8 blowout of the Potosi Trojans and improved Central’s record to a perfect 3-0 on the young season. Not only that, but he led the team, not just in passing yards, but rushing yards as well. Bryant did it all, starting with the game’s opening touchdown in the first quarter, where he punched one in from the one-yard line to put the Rebels up 7-0.
He also had passing TDs of 38 yards and 70 yards to build a lead that the Trojans just couldn’t handle. In total for the game, the former stud wide receiver-turned emergency quarterback had 94 yards on the ground (with a score) on just 13 carries, and went 13-of-19 for an incredible 316 yards and two TDs in the pocket.
Three touchdowns and over 400 total yards is an impressive feat for anyone in uniform, and Bryant kept the line moving for his Rebels to continue this winning streak and keep the hope alive for a perfect season.
Quite the individual effort.
Thanks to Pettus Automotive for making this possible, and congratulations to Jobe Bryant on one heck of a week to start the season.
