Bryant Headlines 2014 IFL Inaugural Hall Of Fame Class

Bryant Headlines 2014 IFL Inaugural Hall Of Fame Class
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

At halftime of the United Bowl, the Indoor Football League introduced its inaugural Hall of Fame class. The league’s first commissioner, Tom Benizio, the "voice" of the Storm, Rich Roste, and former Sioux Falls quarterback, Terrance Bryant, were all inducted. That is why the hall is right where Bryant belongs.

Terrance Bryant was all grins Saturday night as he became the first player inducted into the IFL Hall of Fame. The former Oregon St. standout led the Storm to five indoor titles as a player, one as a coach, and won a league MVP award in 2006. However, he was still shocked to be a part of the first class.

"Not in a million years, especially at the level we play at. I tip my cap to the league for putting me in this Hall of Fame. I'm honored to be in the first class," Bryant said.

Bryant retired in 2010 after leading Sioux Falls to their first four-peat, but he didn't stay away for long. In 2013 he rejoined a sputtering Storm team and helped lead them to their seventh championship, while being named United Bowl MVP for the second time in his career. It was a year his team mates won’t forget.

"It was great having the chance to play with him for one year last season. He's a great quarterback and an even better person. He strives to bring the best out of his guys and rewards us for our efforts on the field. He's an amazing and humble guy. I love him," Sanders said.

Not only do his peers love him, but his mentor as well. Kurtiss Riggs coached Bryant throughout his entire career and admired his work ethic so much he made his former signal caller the Storm's QB coach to help guide the next generation of quarterbacks.

"He's great. Terrance and I have been through a lot. There was some down times, but a lot of up times. He is very deserving and has been great as a coach for me as well," Riggs said.

"He has done a great job this year and has transferred over to a coach really well. When you've won five championships you deserve it," Storm QB Chris Dixon said.

Sure, Bryant's resume is full of titles, over 15,000 passing yards, and 280 touchdowns. But the Hall of Fame QB wants his legacy to be remembered this way.

"When people look back at Terrance Bryant I want people to remember that he came to work each and every day, he played with a professional attitude, and didn't take anything for granted," Bryant said.

Bryant says winning a title in the final game at the Arena was a memory he will never forget.
