Bryce Debri

Bryce was named to the Associated Press All-State team for the 2021 season as a defensive lineman. He was also named to the Detroit Free Press All-State First Team, Detroit News All-State First Team, Michigan High School Football Coaches Association First Team, Lansing State Journal Dream Team as well as CAAC Blue Division All-League.

Not your typical defensive lineman, Bryce was a scant 5'11" and 185lbs compared to typical all-state defensive linemen. Debri was not a typical player. He was running back, would drop back to outside linebacker when situations would warrant, return kickoffs and punts. DeWitt Panther Coach Rob Zimmerman described Debri as one of the most physical, smart and coachable players he has coached. He was a key player to lead DeWitt to three straight semi-final appearances, two appearances in the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) Division 3 Finals and one State Championship and 36 wins in his three years as full time Varsity player.

His senior season, Bryce rushed 148 times for 1,019 yards and 12 TDs. He lost yardage only once. He also caught 20 passes for 294 yards and a pair of scores. For his career on offense, he ran for 1,534 yards on 226 carries and 17 TDs. He also had 64 catches for 911 yards and 6 TDs with 2,800 all purpose yards.

Defensively, switching from defensive end to linebacker, Debri had 43 tackles his senior season along with 4.5 sacks, three batted passes and four interceptions. For his career, he had 67 tackles and 6.5 sacks and 8 SMUKS.

A 4.0 GPA student, Bryce will continue his football career at Hope College. There, he will join brother Andrew on the football team. Bryce and Andrew are the first brothers to earn All-State recognition for DeWitt.
