Reagan running back Bryson Canty had a remarkable season for the Raiders. He began the year as their starting running back, but after an injury to their starting quarterback, he took over under center and led the Raiders to an undefeated season.

Now that football season is over, Canty is now a key contributor for the Raiders JV basketball team. Canty recently sat down with The Chronicle to talk about his season and what he expects from himself going forward.

Q: Coming into this year, what did you expect from yourself?

A: I just wanted to show on the field, that I could do what I have done my whole life that I really didn’t get to do last year. I just wanted to show everyone what I could do at running back. 

Q: Tell me about starting the year at running back and then making the transition to quarterback midway through the season.

A: It felt good. I was enjoying playing running back, because I have played that position my whole life.  Quarterback was fun too, because I still was able to help the team. I got a lot of help from the offensive line and the receivers, they made a big impact too. 

Q: What were your thoughts when you found out you were named The Chronicle Offensive Player of the Year?

A: It was something that I was looking forward to, because it was one of my goals. I just wanted to go out there and do the best I could and hopefully I would get offensive player of the year and that’s what happened.

Q: Has football and basketball always been your favorite sports?

A: Yes, I love football and basketball and I picked up lacrosse in about the fourth or fifth grade, so I like doing that too. 

Q: Is basketball something you do to stay in shape or is it close to your heart like football?

A: Basketball was something I started when I was younger, because I was always at the Y. I stopped playing for a while, but I picked it back up in middle school and it is still fun and keeps me in shape.

Q: We know what you can do on the football field, what do you feel are your best attributes on the basketball court?

A: My athleticism, that’s all it really is.

Q: What do you expect from yourself on the varsity level?

A: I just need to get bigger and stronger and try to do the same thing I did on JV.

Q: How does it make you feel that your coach had such high praise for you?

A: I like to be coachable, just to take what they coach me and adapt is cool. I just go out there and do what I do.
