Colton Bryant, director of development at Premier Futboltech Development Academy, has been named head coach for the new team.

“I’m excited to get this program up and running,” Bryant said. “We are providing opportunities for local girls to receive a quality education while continuing their soccer career at the collegiate level.”

Bryant, a Norman, Oklahoma native, graduated from Columbia Central High School before attending Martin Methodist College where he played soccer. After sustaining several injuries, he focused his efforts as a student assistant coach for Martin Methodist’s men’s soccer team. Since then, Bryant has coached soccer in Florida, Texas, Argentina and Tennessee.

"Colton is incredibly energetic and knowledgeable about the game," Littrell said. "From both his time as a player himself and his experiences coaching, he knows the search for talent and has formed great relationships with local coaches."

Bryant said the reason he began coaching was because of a kid he helped during a soccer camp.

“He kept saying he couldn't do it,” Bryant said. “Every time he returned to camp he mastered that skill he thought he couldn't – there is something so rewarding about helping others get to where they want to go.”
