COAHOMA — There’s an axiom among coaches that if/when your best players are also your hardest workers and best teammates, you’ve got a chance to be good.
Fortunately for the 2021 Coahoma Bulldogs, senior running back Brysen Kerby checks all of those boxes.
As a 1,500-yard rusher with 24 touchdowns a year ago, Kerby’s talent is unquestionable. But if you ask fourth-year CHS coach Chris Joslin, that’s only a small part of what makes the 5-foot-9, 185-pound speedster special. It’s what he does in the weight room, on the practice field and around his teammates that really sets him apart — and gives Joslin confidence that his Bulldogs will be just fine despite graduating more lettermen (14) than they return (13).
