Carroll Football Adds Three to 2014 Recruiting Class

Posted: Updated:

HELENA – Carroll College head football coach Mike Van Diest announced three more signings for the 2014 Fighting Saints recruiting class:

Austin Ybarra a 6-1, 235-pound linebacker from Santa Ana Junior College (Calif.) This past season Austin was a starting linebacker for Santa Ana J.C. He registered 54 tackles with one interception. Austin played high school football at La Habra High School in La Habra, California. As a two-year starter he amassed 195 tackles with 4 interceptions and was named 1st Team All-League during his junior and senior seasons. He was also voted all-CIF both years as well. Austin will have 3 years of eligibility remaining and comes to campus for this year's spring semester.

Mason Melby a 5-11, 175-pound running back/linebacker from Baker High School in Baker, MT. Melby was a four-year starter at Baker High School. He was named 1st Team All-State in 2012 and 2013 as both linebacker and running back positions. He was voted team MVP on both offense and defense in his junior and senior years. Melby holds the school career tackling record with 287 stops and this past season gained 1,800 all-purpose yards. He has been selected to play in the State Class B All-Star Game as well as the East/West Shrine Game. Melby will be a four-year letter winner in football, wrestling, and track. As a wrestler he has placed 2nd in the state during his sophomore and junior years. Mason carries a 4.0 GPA and is the student body president.

Chris Emter a 6-4, 275-pound, offensive and defensive tackle from Park High School in Livingston, MT. Emter is a four-year letter winner in football. He was named 1st Team All-Conference on both sides of the ball in 2012 and 2013. During Emter's junior year he was named 1st Team All-State as an offensive tackle, and this past season he was selected 1st Team All-State as a defensive tackle. Emter was named a team captain in 2013 and has been selected to play the East/West Shrine Game. He lettered as a junior in wrestling, and this year is a starter on the basketball team. Chris carries a 3.2 GPA.

"We are very excited with the addition of these three young men. Chris and Mason are two of the most outstanding student-athletes in the state of Montana and have been recognized for their talent both on and off the field. Austin brings his talents at linebacker to an already strong corps on the Carroll Defense, and will help strengthen that position this spring," Van Diest said.

Melby, Emter and Ybarra join Connor McGree of Butte Central High School and Andy Nemec of Missoula Hellgate High School who signed letters of intent earlier this year with Carroll College.

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