Horn an All-StarPublished 11:04am Friday, May 30, 2014
For the second time in as many years, Benjamin Russell’s Bryant Horn has earned a trip to the Alabama All-Stars Sports Week.
Instead of taking the mound as he did at the conclusion of his junior season, however, Horn will put on the cleats and shoulder pads, as the Wildcats’ quarterback will play in the North vs. South All-Star game.
After having his freshman and sophomore seasons cut short due to injury, Horn was able to bounce back and lead the Wildcats back to prominence in Class 5A.
In Benjamin Russell’s last two seasons, the Wildcats won 21 games and two region championships, thanks in large part to steady and efficient play under center from Horn.
The 6’1”, 185-pounder threw for 1548 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior, completing 61 percent of his passes.
He accounted for 456 rushing yards and 12 scores as well.
As a senior, Horn raised his game even further, completing almost 66 percent of his passes and throwing for 1748 yards and 22 touchdowns. Horn opened the year with nine straight games without an interception and had four games where he threw for at least four touchdowns.
He also ran for 369 yards on the ground and scored eight touchdowns.
Horn will join fellow signal-caller C.J. Tolbert (Dadeville) in Montgomery for the week-long proceedings.
In last year’s contest, former Dadeville receiver and local area standout Terry Toler helped to key a comeback victory for the South team, which won 22-21.
This year’s game will be played July 24 at Montgomery’s Cramton Bowl.
