Cats Senior DB Flowers Racking Up Numbers On and Off Field

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -  MSU football season is only six days away. But before they step onto the playing surface the Montana State Bobcats will take a step in the classroom.

That includes shut down cornerback Deonte Flowers. Flowers may excel on the field, but he's just as big of star in the classroom, especially when it comes to numbers. Flowers is in the final year of pursuing a degree in mathematics, and just last year he was honored with an award from the university for his work in the field. Numbers are always around Flowers, both on the football field in the classroom. He says he takes away valuable lessons from both.

"You might not get the job done the first time around, but you have to keep coming back, keep coming back," said Flowers. "Math is a lot of time. You can spend nights and nights on one problem trying to figure it out without coming to a conclusion until the next day when you get help from a professor. I think that's one way that football has helped with math, it's work ethic."
