Mother of Bryson, Darnisha Allen-Jackson  had this to say about her rising star son.

“Bryson is such a great guy to be around. He has such a joyous and warm spirit. When I’m feeling down he’ll say something that just makes you feel better. He’s like that every day. He’s not pretentious or phony. He’s just legitimately good. I’m blessed to be his mom and a better person for it.”

It was an absolute joy to talk with Bryson and his Mom, a big thank you to both of them. So proud of him and looking forward to a great season for the Gamecocks. Bryson left me with this Quote.
