Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Bryant Garrison
I grew up loving and playing sports at Marion County High School in Guin, AL while earning All-State honors in three (Football, Basketball, and Baseball), and was ultimately inducted into the 2012 Marion County Sports Hall of Fame. I then continued to play Junior College Baseball for one year at Bevill State Community College before attending and graduating from the University of Alabama with a Masters in Kinesiology.
While attending the University of Alabama, I was hired as an Equipment Manager in 2004 on Coach Mike Shula's staff. When he left in 2007, Coach Saban was hired, and I was promoted to a graduate assistant position with Coach Kirby Smart (Defensive Backs/Safeties). I also worked extensively in the weight room with Coach Scott Cochran for the next 3 years, and I was a part of the 2009 SEC and National Championship Team.
I am so honored to be the Head Football Coach here at Smiths Station High School. We want to establish an ELITE PROGRAM that creates a culture and environment to develop athletes into quality football players, students, and people. Our goal is to have a system in place to be the most disciplined and well-organized team, that will allow us to compete each year regardless of the obstacles we face. We strive to have a Championship Everyday Attitude coupled with a 4th and 1 Mentality. Our principles and values that we uphold will always be the standard for us to play as a team, with relentless energy and passion.
My family and I are so blessed by the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing school and community. My wife, Jennifer, and I have been married for 8 years, and we have 1 son, Brody. She is an X-Ray technologist at Kaiser Permanente and Brody is in Kindergarten at Philadelphia Baptist Church. We are so grateful and excited to be a part of the Smiths Station Football family and community! We cannot wait to see what the future holds!
