Wildcats quarterback excited about New England homecoming

June 28, 2007

Albany - The South Georgia Wildcats game at Manchester will be a homecoming for quarterback D. Bryant.

Bryant played for the Wolves last season and their head coach Ben Bennett was also his coach in college at Duke.

While D.Bryant is looking forward to seeing his former head coach, he also wants to beat him after Bennett benched Bryant last season.

The Wolves loss is the Wildcats gain.

D. Bryant has the Wildcats on the verge of their first playoff appearance since moving to South Georgia three years ago.

And he has already thrown more touchdown passes in a single season than any other Wildcat quarter and there are still five more regular season games to play.

Bryant says he doesn't care how many touchdown passes he throws on Saturday. He just wants his team to win the game.

D. Bryant said "That is the plan. You never want to go in there and think you are going to loss. But in front old friends and old team, you definitely want to go up and play well. I am going to go up there and maybe throw 10, 11 or 12 touchdowns. But even if I throw and we go up there and blow them out and I can sit out the fourth quarter, that would be good too."

South Georgia Wildcats, ranked fifth in the latest AF2 coaches poll, are back in action Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. in Manchester, New Hampshire.
