He is a four-year starter and is a 2-time Capital Division Defensive Most Valuable player, three-time Capital first team defense and made PA Preps All-Star team.

Currently Bryce has scholarship offers from Maine, Delaware State, Duquesne, Monmouth, Saint Francis, and Towson.

Q&A with Head Football Coach Andrew Erby

Q. What stood out about Bryce this year?

A. Bryce has been a stellar athlete throughout his high school career. He was a four-year starter, three -year team captain and three-time all-conference all-star. Additionally, he was a two-time MVP defensive player of the year in the Capital Division and All-State football player.

Through his hard work and dedication, he showcased that he was one of the elite football players in the state of Pennsylvania. Bryce is a student of the game and has a high football IQ. He has dedicated his time, not only during the season, but also committed himself during the off-season.

His strengths on the football field are his high motor and his ability to be explosive and powerful. These qualities make him a relentless pass rusher. Often he has seen double teams and triple teams and still caused havoc for his components.

Q. What impact has he had in your community?

A. Bryce is a role model in the classroom, on the field and in the community. He attends the games of our youth football teams. He has personally been a role model for my twin sons, Andrew and Alex. They aspire to be players of the same caliber as Bryce. On the field, Bryce exemplifies a stellar athlete and future college football player.

His teammates work to attain the same qualities and be just as successful. In the community, he has earned the respect of the town and the Steelton-Highspire Roller Football Alumni. He will now be remembered as one of the outstanding student-athletes of a long line of rich Roller history.
