He's an outstanding athlete, who's chosen to stay at home and play for savannah state next year.

Savannah high school senior Bryon Leggett is known for his athletic skills, he is not only a tremendous football player but also excels on the basketball court.

"When I am out playing I am in another world any sports that is competitive I like competitive sports," said Leggett.

He's also competitive in the classroom, and is ranked in the top ten of his class.

Bryon says he owes most of his success to his parents.

"My mother and father they try to encourage me to play they just wouldn't let me quit," said Leggett.

Encouragement that led him to take his love for sports one step farther, and sign with the savannah tigers football team.

"It's a great feeling," said Leggett.

Savannah high head basketball coach Tim Jordan says Bryon is a well rounded student and will always be successful.

"If there are top teens in this town Bryon is one of them he is a great kid and anyone gets to know him loves him and he gonna go off to college and do really well," said Leggett.

And we think so too and that's why he's this week's WTOC Top Teen.
