Heartland Sports Profile of the Big Game: Bryan Hall

(KFVS) -

If you walk the halls at Paducah Tilghman High School, the athletic dominance is clear.

"Tilghman's all about putting people at the next level," said head football coach Randy Wyatt.

But of all the students who went on to pro careers, Bryan Hall will be the first to play in a Super Bowl.

"I said you're about to live a dream, and I can't imagine being in his shoes right now," said Wyatt.

Hall is a fomer All-Conference and honorable mention All-State defensive lineman for the Tornado.

He continued to excel in college at Arkansas State as an All-Sun Belt player.

But his road to the pros wasn't easy.

Hall went undrafted two years ago but did not give up on his NFL dream. He came back to the Tilghman weight room and worked out every single day until he finally got that call from an NFL team.

"He deserved it, he deserved it," said Hall's sister Taryea. "He's real humble. He comes home, he doesn't come home with that big head. He comes home he's Bryan."

"He's an extremely hard worker, and that's why he's in the position he's in today," said Wyatt.

Hall worked his way from the practice squad last season to the 53-man roster this year, playing in five games.

He also made a name for himself off the field, as the Ravens voted him the teams's "biggest mouth."

"He's the class clown," Taryea said.

"That's Bryan, he likes to have fun and keep everybody going," said Tilghman principal Art Davis.

Hall's Ravens may be the underdog in New Orleans, but its clear whose the favorite in Paducah.

"Ravens no doubt. By seven," proclaimed Wyatt.

"The Ravens. It'll be 21-6," predicted Davis.
