The Arab High School standout closed out his senior campaign  highlighting his long sprinting ability and his athletic versatility in the Decathlon, it's Bryant Beuoy!

Interview with Bryant Beuoy of Arab High School.

Q: What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

A: Moose Tracks 

Q: Where are you planning to attend college? Or do you have other post high school plans?

A:  University of Alabama in Huntsville

Q: Do you plan to continue competing in track and field or cross country in college?

A: No

Q: What is your favorite event to compete in and why?

A:  The 200 is the best. It's the perfect mix of endurance and top end speed, with some room for error in the start.

Q: Do you have any pre-race/competition rituals or superstitions?

A:  I used to eat an Italian Hero from the Walmart deli before every meet. I also knew that the more I talked to the people in my heat and smiled, the better the race would be.

Q: Which track or cross country meet was your favorite and why?

A:  The Scottsboro Last Chance meet from this year, because I proved that I was a 10.8 runner without wind, ran sub 22 for the first time with a 21.68, broke the 4x8 school record with my first ever 800, and threw a pr in discus getting ready for decathlon.

Q: What is your favorite memory or highlight from your time on the track and field or cross country team?

A:  The first time I won the 400 at state, indoor 2023, when it was entirely unexpected. The support and love I received was amazing, and it lead to our first boys runner-up trophy in years.

Q: Is there anyone that you'd like to give a special shout-out to?

A:  Rob Wheeler and Waid Harbison, only two of the amazing coaches I've had over the years who made me into the athlete I am.

Q: What is one piece of advice you would like to leave for your teammates as you graduate?

A:  A lack of fear isn't bravery, facing your fears and conquering them is. Whether you're a 7th grader being pulled up to varsity or a senior competing in the state meet, it's natural to feel fear. Let that anxious energy guide you to be the best you can be, and know that failure only leads to better results down the road.

Editor Note:  This is an excellent piece of advice from Bryant, thank you for sharing!
