Bryson Dennis was the leading scoring threat for the Labette Cardinals men’s basketball program, which won a KJCCC title and advanced to the Region VI Tournament finals in a shortened season.
The efforts from Dennis, a Snellville, Georgia, native, earned him the 2020-21 Parsons Sun Labette Male Athlete of the Year honor.
“He was tremendous,” Labette men’s basketball head coach Jerrod Stanford said. “You knew if you needed a bucket, we could run a set to get the ball to Bryson and he would go make a play. We knew the slump would be stopped and we’d keep moving forward.”
Dennis averaged 17.3 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game during the 2021 season.
His performance earned Dennis KJCCC Most Valuable Player and second-team NJCAA All-American honors.
“He’s one of the most productive players we’ve ever had here,” Stanford said. “His stats speak for themselves. Look at the amount of games we’ve won, and his role is obvious.”
Dennis is expected to return for another season with Labette.
