Bronson Massie (b. Nov. 4, 1997) is athletic defensive end who used a redshirt season to develop. He will compete for playing time at defensive end and on special teams.
Massie played outside linebacker in high school, making him a prime candidate for the rush end/flanker spot once filled by players such as Elijah Lee and Charmeachelle Moore.
A three-year letter-winner for the Lufkin High School Panthers under head coach Todd Quick, Massie was regarded as the 62nd-best outside linebacker in the class of 2016 by ESPN, while Scout.com rated him the No. 16 defensive end in the state of Texas. He helped Lufkin to earn a 7-4 record and a trip to the state playoffs in 2015.
Massie earned first-team All-District 16-5A honors as a defensive end in 2015, while he was an honorable mention Texas Associated Press Sports Editors Class 5A All-State pick.
He was named to the East Texas Sports Network East Texas Football Super Team after recording 173 tackles and 26 sacks during his three-year career, including an 80-tackle, 10-sack campaign as a senior.
