East Central University football defensive end Armonty Bryant has picked up two post season honors after a standout senior season. Bryant was named to the 2012 AFCA Division II Coaches’ All-America Team and The Oklahoman State College All-Star Football Team Defensive Player of the Year.
The Wichita Falls, Texas, native earned a spot on the 25-member AFCA Division II Coaches’ All-America Team as one of 11 members of the defensive team and is one of just two players from a Great American Conference school to earn a spot on this season’s team.
He earned The Oklahoman State College All-Star Football Team Defensive Player of the Year after being named The Oklahoman State College Defensive Player of the Week twice during 2012.
Bryant ended his career with 27.5 sacks, good enough to claim the ECU Career Sacks title. The Wichita Falls, Texas, native recorded a total of 10.5 sacks, for 79 yards, his senior season, while adding 54 (27-27) tackles, 17.5 tackles-for-loss (115 yards), seven quarterbacks hurries, three pass break-ups, four forced fumbles, two blocked kicks, and two fumble recoveries (53 yards). Bryant scored one touchdown on a forced fumble and recovery that ended up being the game-winning TD against Southeastern Oklahoma State (Nov. 10).
