The Bryant Hornets are the four-time defending 7A state champions. 

They enter the season ranked #1 in the preseason polls.  Bryant has won 42 straight in-state games but head coach Buck James knows nothing will be given to them this season.

Bryant has to replace a lot of offense, but they return every defender from the state championship game.

The Hornets open the season Saturday night against Benton in the Salt Bowl.
