Episode 233: There are No Shortcuts in Football with Bryson Barnes

Bryson Barnes grew up in a small town in Southern Utah called Milford and is the middle child of 5. Bryson grew up loving sports and played a couple competitively in high school which included football, wrestling, baseball, and track. Bryson has been playing quarterback at the University of Utah for 3 years, with his intro to college football staged at the Rose Bowl where he threw a 15 yard pass to tie the game against Ohio State with only a minute and a half left in the game. Bryson has an incredible story of going from a walk-on player to just being awarded a scholarship this month. Before his scholarship, he had picked up a part time job at Lowes just to cover his tuition, on top of his many obligations as a student athlete studying business at the University of Utah and starting quarterback for Utah's first two games of the season. Bryson is humble, hungry, and super down to earth, and I really think you'll be inspired by his work ethic and dedication to going the extra mile in all things in life.
