Carroll Football Announces First Two Signings of 2014 Fr. Class

HELENA – Carroll College head football coach Mike Van Diest announced the Fighting Saints first two signings for the 2014 freshman class.

Connor McGree of Butte Central High School and Andy Nemec of Missoula Hellgate High School have signed letters of intent with Carroll College.

"We are extremely excited to have Connor and Andy join our program. We identified both of these players during their junior years and they bring a lot of athletic ability to the offensive side of the ball," Van Diest, who yesterday was named an NAIA regional coach of the year by the American Football Coaches Association, said.

McGree is 6-3, 210 lb. tight end for former Carroll College grad Don Peoples. McGree was named 1st team All-Conference for the third consecutive season this year and was selected as 1st team All-State at Tight End in both his junior and senior seasons.

McGree, who played on both sides of the ball was also a 1st team All-Conference pick at defensive end and as a multi-sport athlete lettered in basketball as well as track and field. He carries a 4.19 GPA and is Butte Central's student body vice president.

Nemec, a 6-2 205 lb. athlete was an all-around contributor for the Hellgate Knights over the past two seasons as he lined up at quarterback, running back, tight end and defensive back.

Nemec, like McGree also lettered in basketball and was a member of Hellgate's 2013 state championship squad. As well as his athletic accomplishments, Nemec has a 3.5 GPA and has been named academic All-State three times.

"This is a great start to our recruiting season and our coaches are hitting the road to find talented kids with great character to help continue to grow our program," Van Diest said.

The Fighting Saints are coming off a 12-2 season in which they captured their 13th Frontier Conference Championship in 14 seasons.

Last Saturday, the Saints fell in overtime to the University of the Cumberlands 34-27 in overtime in the NAIA National Semifinal.

You might not think it matters as long as it keeps those pesky mosquitoes away, but you might want to take a closer look at that bug spray bottle before you spray it on you or your kiddo's.  One of the biggest concerns when it comes to bug spray is if the chemical N-diethyl-meta-toluamide, more commonly known as ‘DEET’, is safe to use; especially on children. The good news is that you’re 100% in the clear. ...
