Bucs’ Bryant named Man of the Year
A day after kicking a career-best four field goals to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 19-13 win, former Baylor kicker Matt Bryant was named the Bucs’ 2007 Man of the Year.
The award honors players not just for their on-the-field actions — though one could certainly make a case for Bryant on those numbers alone as the most accurate kicker in Tampa Bay history — but also for their work in the community. Bryant, who played two seasons at Baylor (1997-98), has actively worked with the March of Dimes since his son Tre was born prematurely last year in addition to helping with several charity events. He is one of 32 nominees for the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
Sic ’em, Matt!
