Bryson Mason leading Northwest Cabarrus to second straight unbeaten season

The do-it-all junior transferred this season. He's helped guide the Trojans to another 9-0 start.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Northwest Cabarrus Trojans are 9-0 this season. That's nothing new. 

After all, they went undefeated last regular season, too. One big difference this year, though, has been transfer Bryson Mason. 

"He acclimated himself every well," said Trojans coach Brandon Gentry. "He's been very humble, just wanting to fit in."

Mason, a junior, transferred to Northwest this season, and after a week weeks, found himself playing all three phases of the game: offense, defense and special teams. 

"Now he has the entire package rolling at him," Gentry said. "It's full go with him." 

Mason plays wide receiver, safety and a little bit of everything on special teams. He's also one of the brightest students on the team. The two go hand in hand. 

"Film, studying film, same way in the classroom," Mason said. "Study my work. Study for tests, assignments, and quizzes."

"He's smart as well," Gentry said. "Any time you can coach a smart, athletic kid, it makes my job a lot easier."

He's the made Trojans' path to 9-0 easier with his leadership on the field. 

"He's quiet and he just lines up and plays," Gentry explained. "He comes from somewhere else and he didn't come in with an attitude, he just wants to be one of the guys. And he plays hard. I think our guys respect that he came in and just wants to be part of the team."

"[I want to] Motivate them," Mason said. "Tell them to keep their head up, we're going to have time when we're down. Just don't give up, keep pushing, stay motivated and stick through it."
