CMR's Thomas Signs With the Griz

Posted: Updated:

Alex Thomas says he didn't sleep a wink last night.

"Not at all, not one bit."

Who could blame him? I mean, he was about to live his dream of signing to play football for the Griz.

"Feels great, I'm excited, I can't wait to be a part of their family. It's one of the best things I've ever had, and can't explain how good it feels to be signing with the Griz now," Alex says.

Alex says he chose Montana because of the tradition, and the family feel of the program.

"They did such a great job recruiting me, they made me feel wanted and a part of them before I was even signed," Alex says.

Playing at Washington-Griz played a big part too. And dad David can't wait to see his son run on to that field

"I'm excited because I get to watch more football, I can't tell you how proud of him we are, he's worked hard, he's worked on the field, we're just really proud of him," David says.

So is Alex's coach, Jack Johnson, who's had several of his former players go to Montana. He gives the latest, a pretty good scouting report.

"Number one, he's got good speed. Anymore, it's a speed game with all the spread offense and he's got that, and he's a tough kid and loves to play football, so, we wish him well," Johnson says.

So does Griz Nation. Who like Alex, should sleep pretty good tonight, knowing a kid like this is coming their way.
