Listed as the 3rd employee at NIKE, he has been recognized as one of the prime energy and creative sources behind this tiny and struggling 1960 era company rise to become the world powerhouse in running and sports equipment..
“People here, I think what they know about Bryce is that he works hard and he cares,” said Thomas. “Maybe that comes off wrong for some people, but I know what type of kid I still think of him as a kid he is and what he stands for. It’s what you want.”.
“Any of us that were here this week, any of the 24 participants can hold their head high as one of the top quarterbacks out there,” said Mangum. “Any of the 24 could have won the award.
