He can solve a Rubik’s Cube in about a minute, hit a pop-fly to center field, and this coming fall he will be playing on the field at Oklahoma State University as a member of the Cowboy marching band.
Although he was born in Houston, Texas, Michael Bryant, Jr. has attended school here in Waurika his whole life.
He has participated in band, football, baseball, the academic team, FFA, the Beta Club, and is a member of the National Honor Society.
So why did he try out for the OSU marching band? It’s not because one of his favorite colors is orange.
The simple answer is that he has a deep love for music. Two of his favorite genres is country and classic rock from the vinyl era.
Although he can play the tuba, he favors the trumpet because of its versatility.
Bryant tried out for a place in the marching band back in February and was informed the day of the try out that he had been accepted.
He will attend band camp a week before the official move-in date in order to prepare for the marching season.
He says his most memorable moments while attending Waurika High School are the times he competed with the band at state competitions.
Even though he has many accolades and achievements under his belt, some of the qualities he possesses that makes him memorable among members of the community is his genuineness, maturity, and ability to communicate with people from all levels of society.
His plans are to major in Agriculture and possibly go on to become a Veterinarian.
Whatever he chooses to do in life he will go far.
