Bryan Powers acquired his football skills on the turf at Terra Nova High School. It was later that those skills put him at the University of Mississippi where he played on two Cotton Bowl championship teams.
Powers was a three-sport athlete at Terra Nova, graduating in 2006. He played under the coaching of legendary Pacifica Sports Hall of Famers Bill Gray and Ron Krieger. He earned All-League and MVP honors in football, basketball, and baseball, and in his senior year was named Terra Nova Male Athlete of the Year.
He played youth baseball until he entered San Mateo College. He played on two Joe DiMaggio World Series baseball championship teams. Ten years after playing on the 2006 state championship team, he returned home to manage the 2015 Pacifica Joe DiMaggio team to the title.

At CSM, he was named to the All-Conference team and Special Team Player of the Year as a punter. His football performance earned him a scholarship to Ole Miss in 2007. At Ole Miss he became the first CSM punter to receive a Division I scholarship, and the first CSM football player to attend a Southeastern Conference school.
He was a part of the Ole Miss Cotton Bowl Championship teams in 2009 and 2010, where he earned membership on the SEC Academic Honor Roll and the Chancellor’s List for maintaining a perfect 4.0 GPA. Powers graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, and was the recipient of the Robert T. Warren Outstanding Criminal Justice Student award.
The end of Power’s collegiate football playing career marked the beginning of his collegiate coaching career. In 2011 he joined the Ole Miss coaching staff as a Special Teams Intern, and in 2012 became the Special Team Assistant Coach for the Southern University Jaguars in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In 2014 he returned to the College of San Mateo as an Assistant Coach for kicking, punting, and special teams.
Powers’ long affiliation with Joe DiMaggio Baseball in Pacifica began in 2004. He played on 2004 and 2006 state championship teams, managed by PSHOF member Mike Hughes. In 2013 Bryan joined the coaching staff. The following year he became the manager of the club and last year he coached the Pacifica Joe DiMaggio team to its first World Series Championship in nine years. The team finished the season with a 24-5 record.
