Tecumseh’s AJ Bryan, others declare to play at the next level

National Signing Day is a day high school football players around the country look forward to for a couple of reasons.

It’s a day they get to celebrate going to play at the next level, but it’s also a relief as the biggest decision of their lives so far is now behind them.

“I love Ryder and that whole family has been like a second family to me,” Bryan said. “They’ve always welcomed me in. Jake Burns was probably my favorite teammate I’ve ever played with. He was my quarterback for two years and the guy I got closest with. That’s a guy I grew up playing with and to get to line up with him again is truly a blessing.”

Northwood has been high on Bryan from the start and the Timberwolves were his first offer more than a year ago. In fact, Bryan was the first player Beurer offered after taking over the program.

Bryan was one of the few county players to announce decisions this week. Some were committed weeks ago to Division III Adrian College, which has a slightly different process for signing commitments due than Division I, II or NAIA…
