Wake, funeral planned for football star Greg Bryant

A wake and funeral are planned this weekend for Greg Bryant, a local football standout and victim of a deadly shooting early Saturday.

A viewing will be held Friday at 6 p.m. at St. John’s Missionary Church in Boynton Beach, according to Bryant’s uncle, Allen Mosley. The funeral will be held at the same church Saturday at 1 p.m., according to family members.

Bryant will be buried at Delray Memorial Cemetery.

Bryant, 21, and his friend, Maurice Grover, 25, both of Delray Beach, were found shot in a black, four-door Chrysler near the Forest Hill exit on southbound Interstate 95.

Grover, who recovered from minor injuries, told The Palm Beach Post that Bryant may have been targeted as the men left Sugar Daddy’s Cabaret near West Palm Beach.

Bryant was removed from life supportSunday at St. Mary’s Medical Center.

Bryant was one of the top football recruits coming out of American Heritage School in Delray Beach after his 2012 season. He had hopes of one day playing professionally, his family said in a news conference Monday.

In his junior year, Bryant helped the American Heritage Stallions clinch the state title. That year, he ran for 2,180 yards and 35 touchdowns.

He accepted a scholarship to Notre Dame, where he ran for more than 300 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games. He left prior to last season after being ruled academically ineligible.

He transferred to ASA Miami, a junior college in Miami. In November, he signed with UAB and was slated to play there in 2017.

Bryant planned to fly back Sunday to the University of Alabama-Birmingham, where he was about to restart his football career.
