Throughout the 2014 football season, LFSN Game On reporter Alan York will take a weekly look inside Liberty's football program in a segment called "Between the Lines."

During this week's segment, York talks with Bryant and Dylan Lewellyn, looking at the dynamics of their relationship as assistant coach (Bryant) and player (Dylan), as well as brothers.

After finishing up his playing career at Liberty in 2012, Bryant was asked by head football coach Turner Gill to join his staff as a defensive tackles coach. As a player, he was a team captain during his senior season and he led the team and ranked second in the Big South in sacks (5.0) in 2012.

Dylan, Bryant's younger brother, is now in his fourth year with the program and has played in 24 career games. He has started the first two games of the 2014 season at weak side linebacker and is coming off a career performance last weekend. At Norfolk State, he led the team with 11 tackles, helping the Flames post their second shutout under Gill and 23rd in program history with a 17-0 victory.

The two brothers played together during Bryant's senior year in 2012. Bryant finished the year with 20 tackles (10 solo, 10 assisted), including 5.5 tackles for a loss, while Dylan recorded 21 stops (13 solo, eight assisted) and blocked an extra point attempt.
