Havelock's Bryant Named AP Coach Of Year

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Havelock's Jim Bob Bryant has been named The Associated Press prep football coach of the year for North Carolina after guiding his program to a third straight state championship.

Bryant earned the AP honor for the second time in three seasons after a 16-0 season that ended with a win against Concord in the Class 3-A North Carolina High School Athletic Association championship.

Bryant earned seven of a possible 13 votes from sports writers across the state in results released Tuesday.

North Rowan's Joe Nixon was second with three votes after guiding his program to a 13-1 record to set a school single-season record for wins. Eastern Wayne's Bubba Williams and Morganton Freedom's Blair Hardin also received votes.
