UPDATE: We’ve gotten a few more additions to this listing after posting it on Facebook a week ago. Here’s the most updated list with another half dozen or so names tacked on. Let’s see if we can add any more.
With fall camps just around the corner, the Missoulian is trying to keep track of all our area graduates that have moved on to play college football. So far we’ve got a pretty basic list put together with 42 western Montana football players who have committed with a college program.
Don’t see your kid on the list? You know of someone else we’re missing?
We’ll add them as soon as we can. Send any omissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or get ahold of me via Twitter at twitter.com/ajmazzolini. Remember this list only spans western Montana within the Missoulian’s coverage area.
The 67th annual East-West Montana Shrine Football Game kicks off at 7 p.m. in Butte on Saturday, July 20, and the Missoulian will be there covering the action.
Can’t make it over to Naranche Stadium even though your favorite local athlete will be playing in the all-star game? Don’t worry, you can still keep up with the action and track your players with ease here!

But without available money from the district to fund the sport, the new Vikings team must raise the sum itself. Continue reading
He may have only finished two years of high school this spring, but Missoula Hellgate basketball forward Tres Tinkle has already caught the eye of recruiters at the college level.
The University of Utah became the first program to offer Tinkle a scholarship and a spot on its roster, both being for the 2015-16 season. The Utes likely won’t be the last to show their interest in the rising Montana star, though.
Mountain West Hoops first reported the offer Saturday morning. The basketball site ranks Tinkle, a 6-foot-6 small forward for the Knights, as its No. 1 player prospect in the region for the class of 2015. Continue reading
The sides are labeled East and West, but the lines of division aren’t quite that clear.
The final rosters for the Shodair Children’s Hospital Soccer Classic are now set and western Montana’s athletes help make up both squads in the all-star matches set for Saturday, July 27. Continue reading
