Abraham: "Ready to Play Football"

Louisiana Tech signee Bryson Abraham is looking forward to his freshman year...

"The reality has set in that I'm about to begin college and I'm excited," said Bryson Abraham. "I'm ready to get started. I've stayed in contact with Coach Spangler and Coach Curtis since I signed, and they're telling me they can't wait until I get up there.

"I've been getting in the right shape and condition for training camp."

Abraham was a dual-threat QB for Jennings, but he'll make a position switch at Tech.

"The coaches recruited me first as a defensive back," Abraham said. "I think that's a good fit for me. I guess it depends on some things (whether he'll play WR or DB), but I expect to be at corner."

Abraham had a hectic spring on the baseball and track & field circuit. He qualified for the 4A state track meet in multiple events, finishing 4th in both the long jump and triple jump, and the south Louisiana product was equally adept on the diamond.

"I batted over .300 with five home runs," said Abraham. "I stole a good bit of bases, although Evan Powell from Sam Houston (LSU signee) did throw me out once.

"We had a good overall season in baseball. We made it to the second round of the playoffs before Sam Houston beat us. We won against Neville in the first round, and that was good payback for them eliminating us from the football playoffs."

What's Abraham currently doing?

"Right now, I'm on my senior trip in Galveston," he said. "I'm relaxing. We're about to head to a water park. I'm just kicking back a little bit before I get back to work."
