It stands to reason that, when a team goes 13-0 and wins a State championship, there will be some records set and such was the case for the 2019 Bryant Hornets.
The 13 wins in itself is a record along with the winning streak that extended to 17 wins in a row and counting.
Individually, quarterback Austin Ledbetter re-wrote many of the passing and total offense records. Two of his receivers, Jake Meaders and Joseph Young set new marks and kicker Brock Funk, though he only attempted three field goals this season, was busier by far than any past kicker for Bryant booting extra points.
Most of the defensive records are team marks, which seems appropriate, considering how much teamwork played into their remarkable season.
One statistic that must surely be a school record, though there’s no past information about the category is the fact that Catrell Wallace blocked four punts this season and blocked seven in his Hornets’ career. It’s hard to imagine anyone have more in either category.
