We got a chance to sit down and talk to cornerback Myles Bryant about the 2018 Washington football season and more!
Bryant has had a standout junior season for Washington football, earning All Pac-12 Second-team honors after being an honorable mention last season. He finished fifth on the team in tackles with 55, adding 3.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and four passes defensed.
This will be the second time this season that Bryant will get to play in his hometown of Pasadena, but the stakes will be a little higher this time. Bryant played one of his best games of the season against UCLA in Pasadena, registering five tackles and a forced fumble.
As a Pasadena kid, did you ever get a chance to attend a Rose Bowl game before this?
Yes, I’ve been able to attend a few Rose Bowl games growing up, I saw Texas beat USC, USC vs. Michigan, USC vs. Illinois, TCU vs. Wisconsin, USC vs. Penn State. So I’ve been to a few of them.
What do you feel that you personally have done the best this season?
This season I’ve felt like I’ve done a great job just playing my role on the team wherever I’m needed, whether that be corner, Nickel, gunner on punt, whatever it may be, I think I’ve done well in all aspects.
Favorite memory from the Rose Bowl run this year?
My favorite memory from this season so far has to be winning the Pac-12 championship.
How do you think the secondary can hold up against Dwayne Haskins and the OSU passing attack?
I think it’s gonna be a fun matchup, Haskins is a great player, obviously a Heisman candidate, and helps propel that top-ranked offense, so it should be a lot to look forward to.
What do you feel that you’ve improved upon the most since your freshman year?
I think I’ve improved on a bunch of aspects since my freshman year, I understood the game more intently and now I play more confidently ever than before.
I think for that trio, the sky is the limit. They are all first round talent and have all the resources to become that if they want. They all have the capability to be the best at their position in the country but now just have to put the work in.
Really exciting words from a big-time player! Thank you to Myles for doing this interview, and we can’t wait to watch him ball out in Pasadena.
