Bryan coach Joey Johnson stated, "It is always difficult to see a season come to a close, and we are certainly disappointed to not be moving on in the national tournament.  However, the memories that these young men have from this season will be carried for a lifetime.  Our seniors move on with our full respect and appreciation for all they have invested in our program and in their teammates.  I count it a privilege to have had the opportunity to work with this team, and I am most proud of who they are as young men and not what they have done.  Together they have worked to create great memories, and I am happy to have had the chance to share in the journey that was the 2013 season."
