Carroll Football Inks Three from Class B Champions

Carroll College head coach Mike Van Diest announced Thursday that three more student-athletes: Tony Madsen, Matt McHugh and Pat Kosena have signed letters of intent to play football for the Fighting Saints.

All three accomplished student-athletes played at Loyola Sacred Heart High School in Missoula for head coach Terry Falcon. The Rams are coming off a state championship season with an unbeaten (14-0) record in the Class B ranks.

Tony Madsen – 6-foot-2, 190-pound defensive back. Madsen was a four-year letter winner in football where he helped the Rams to back-to-back state championships (2012-2013). Madsen was a team captain and was an All-Conference selection at running back and safety in both his junior and senior seasons.

This past season Madsen was named 1st Team All-State on both sides of the ball. During the 2013 campaign Madsen rushed for 1,235 yards and 12 touchdowns. On defense, he amassed 100 total tackles.

In addition to his exploits on the gridiron, Madsen will be a four-year letterman in basketball and two years in golf. He has been named Academic All-State and carries a 3.65 gpa.

Pat Kosena – 6-foot-3, 185-pound wide receiver. Kosena lettered all four years in football and has also lettered in basketball and golf.

He has started on back-to-back state championships (2012-2013). Kosena is a three-time All-Conference selection on offense and defense. He was named a team captain as a senior. In addition to being an outstanding wide receiver, Kosena excelled as a long snapper.

He has been selected to play in the Class B All-Star Game this summer. Academically, Kosena holds a 3.0 gpa.

Matt McHugh – 6-foot-2, 195-pound quarterback. McHugh started as a wide receiver his junior year on Loyola's state championship squad. This past season, McHugh guided the Rams to another state championship, this time as their signal caller.

McHugh earned four varsity letters in football and was captain of both the football and basketball teams. He was named 1st Team All-Conference at wide receiver as a junior and as a senior; he was named 1st Team All-Conference at quarterback and defensive back. Additionally, McHugh garnered All-State recognition on both sides of the ball as well.

This past season he threw for 2,100 yards and 32 touchdowns and gained another 459 yards on the ground.

For his work on the football field, McHugh was named to the Class B All-Star Game and is an alternate to the East West Shrine Game.

In addition to football, McHugh is a starting pitcher for the Missoula Mavericks Legion Baseball team.

He has been an academic all-state all four years with a perfect 4.0 gpa.

"We are ecstatic with the signing of these three young men. They are great athletes in a number of sports; outstanding students and they are leaders in the school and in the Missoula Community. They are a great fit for Carroll College," Van Diest said.
