Bright Seminole Future
Five-star prospect Callahan Bright was a man amongst boys in high school and Seminole defensive line coach Odell Haggins is giddy to have him suiting up in Garnet & Gold.
"Callahan is a complete football player," Coach Haggins said. "The kid has everything you want out of a defensive tackle. If he can stay healthy and come in listen, he'll be a Sunday player. He's strong, fast and quick. He has played some linebacker and I've seen him return punts. He's very athletic for a 6-foot-3 and 312 pound player. Callahan is one of the best defensive tackle prospects that I've recruited here. He's got potential but that means he hasn't done it yet."
Coach Haggins is correct that Bright has a ton of potential. Last spring at a combine, he dominated Scout.com's number one rated offensive lineman in the country in Eugene Monroe.
As a junior he accumulated over 100 tackles and 15 sacks from his defensive tackle position.
Bright, who bench presses 400 pounds and squats 700 pounds, also plays Lacrosse, throws the shot put on the track and field team, and he was once active in power lifting and aspires to get back involved in the sport. He also wrestles in the unlimited division at several free style tournaments.
The Pennsylvania standout isn't academically qualified yet.
Scout.com Scouting Report: Bright plays defensive end, defensive tackle and right guard. The first thing you notice when watching film is his sheer top end speed for a prospect his size. It is quite amazing. He has great feet and quickness and is very aggressive on the field. He is quick off the ball, uses his hands well and is a great pass rusher and run stopper. Bright gets off his blocks and finds the ball. Offensively, he is a punishing run blocker and is super in the open field pulling.
