Defensive lineman Bryan Hall, a three-year starter at A-State and 2010 first-team All-Sun Belt honoree, is a member of the Baltimore Ravens who defeated the New England Patriots in the National Football League's AFC Championship Game.
With the victory, the Ravens are headed to Super Bowl XLVII where they will face off against the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers on February 3 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
A four-year letterman at Tilghman High in Paducah, Ky., Bryan Hall enrolled at A-State in 2006 after being recruited by Louisville, Murray State and James Madison. During his career at Arkansas State, Bryan totaled 124 tackles, 16 sacks, 4 forced fumbles and an interception.
Bryan signed with the Ravens as a rookie free agent on July 28, 2011. After clearing waivers at the end of summer camp, he quickly resigned with the Ravens to join their practice squad. In September 2012, Bryan was elevated to the official 53-man roster. He made his regular season debut and recorded his first career tackle on October 21, 2012 against the Houston Texans. Bryan saw action in five games this season, recording 3 tackles.
Loyal to A-State
Since leaving Jonesboro in 2011, Bryan has remained active with Arkansas State athletics. He has attended several games over the last 2 years and has remained in touch with former teammates and Red Wolves fans through social media.
Byran has agreed to share his experiences this week with the A-State fan base. Throughout the week, he will be answering questions submitted by ASU fans and uploading photos from behind the scenes of the spectacle that is Super Bowl week.
