It is with the heaviest of hearts that I share the following news with you. One of our own, a Panther unlike any other, Tanner Bryan passed away on Monday, February 5th. We celebrate the life and support the family and friends that loved him so much.

Tanner was everything that Panther Football stood for, he was a leader, a friend, a mentor, a wonder to coach and beyond anything else, he had a heart of gold, very much like his jersey color. We honor #99 from this point forward for the passion, dedication and perseverance he brought with him every day on and off the field.

He will be greatly missed by all of us, but those that knew him well will cherish the memories that he instilled in us so many times over.

May God look over Tanner with a gentle hand and now may Tanner look over us with that same gentleness that he showed so many.

With much love and grace,

Jason LaPerna
