Before he died on Sunday evening, he told his mother, “I won.”

“Bryce took his last breath at 11:39pm,” Bryce’s mother, Diana, said via twitter. “He fought til the very end.”

Wisdom was a member of the Judson football team. He was diagnosed with cancer during his sophomore season, and he missed the majority of his junior year as a result of the disease. Throughout 2019, the Rockets walked out for pre-game ceremonies holding an orange “Bryce Strong” shirt, and he was often spotted on the sidelines wearing a uniform.
