Bryant LewellynAssistant Coach - Defensive Tackles
College: Liberty ('12)
Start Date: 2/1/2013
Bryant Lewellyn has been a part of Liberty's football program since the 2009 season and capped off his four-year career with the Flames by earning All-Big South second team honors, last fall.
After only playing in nine games and recording five total tackles before his senior year, Lewellyn impressed Liberty's new coaching staff last year and finished off his career in a Flames uniform by having a banner season.
Following spring practice, Lewellyn was named one of four team captains, and he went on to start all 11 games during Liberty's 2012 Big South Conference championship season.
Lewellyn finished the year ranked second on the team and recorded a career-high 20 tackles during the 2012 campaign (10 solo, 10 assisted). He led the Flames and ranked No. 2 in the Big South with 5.0 sacks.
The Danbury, N.C., native saved his best performances of the season for Liberty's top ranked opponents. He recorded season-high tackle totals in Liberty's games against No. 14/12 Montana, No. 16/13 Lehigh and No. 6/8 Stony Brook. Against Stony Brook, Lewellyn finished the game with three tackles, including two sacks, to help the Flames knock off their first Top 10 ranked team in program history.
Lewellyn was part of a defensive unit that helped the Flames finish the year ranked No. 15 nationally in total defense (314.73 yards allowed per game) and No. 24 in rushing defense (126.09).
Lewellyn graduated from Liberty in 2013 with a degree in kinesiology.
