As a junior, Bryson Beirne tore his ACL in the second game of the season and missed the remainder of the year. Before the injury, he had impressed at a number of summer camps and was primed for a strong junior campaign. He is chomping at the bit to get back on the field. "I am ready," Beirne states emphatically. "I want to get out to some camps to show people what I am made of."

He is scheduled to attend a couple of camps in Hawaii, and two camps on the "mainland". "I will be heading to the UCLA and Colorado camps, for sure. I went to both of their spring games and those are the two schools I really would like to be at.

"They both have good academics and they are both storied programs on the gridiron."

Both schools also have some players from the Islands on their rosters. "At Colorado, I know Michael Sipili and R.J. Brown. I kind of grew up with those guys. R.J. went to school about a mile from me. I also took a lot of big hits when I played against Michael. That guy is a beast. When I was in Boulder, I also talked to Jordan. It is cool to be able to go to a place where I can relate to some guys. The recruiting coach in my area, Brian Cabral, is also from here so that makes things easier because he knows what it is like to go from here to there."

Beirne was impressed with what he saw from the Buffs. "I really like the direction Coach Hawkins is taking the program. He spoke to all of us on junior day and I liked what he had to say. I was impressed with the team and the things they are trying to do with their quarterback position. I look forward to going back there for camp and showing them what I can do."

He has only been at quarterback since his freshman season at Mid-Pacific Institute. "Up until my freshman year, I had always been a lineman. I have been playing football for the past seven years and only been at quarterback for a couple seasons."

Other schools looking at the signal caller, and schools he has interest in, include Auburn, Washington State, Utah, and New Mexico State."

Beirne carries a 3.4 core GPA and scored a 1620 on the SAT. "I am taking the ACT, May 6th, and the SAT again on May 10th and in June. I want to get over a 2,000."

He is thinking of majoring in Economics, Pre-Law or Sports Management.
