A couple of weeks ago, Maddox Bryant of Perry County traveled to North Carolina to participate in the NAGA Jiu Jitsu tournament. The young Bryant was able to bring home the 7 year old expert title, giving him a state title in two different states (the other being West Virginia).
Bryant is a 7 year old first grader at East Perry Elementary, and the son of Ryan and Kim Bryant. He is also a member of the Perry County Elementary wrestling team.
