He’s usually one of the last people to leave the building at Pleasant Grove High School these days. Future Cougar Bryan Sampson has been working hard in the Viking weight room in preparation to follow in the footsteps of his brothers to play Division-1 football.

Bryan however is taking a different route, having signed to play for BYU rather than follow his brothers Colt or Clint who played at Utah and Utah State respectively. Another Sampson brother, Westin played JC football at Snow College.

Sampson’s dedication in the weight room has added 15 pounds to his athletic frame this year, and he now checks in at 6′4″ and 225-pounds. With a long reach, good hands, crisp route running and 34-inch vertical, Bryan very much fits the mold of the great tight ends that have played the position over the years for the Cougars.

An ankle injury slowed and frustrated Bryan during his senior season last year. That frustration has helped fuel his drive to be the best prepared he can be as he readies for his first fall camp at BYU.
