CMR Chases State Title 14

Posted: Updated:

At CMR, state championships are expected.. And every player who dons the green and gold for the Rustlers understands that.

"I remember coming in here my freshman year and our first game Coach said 13 state championships - it all starts right now. And it's stuck with me ever since. It's crazy it's finally here," said Dallas Farren, Rustlers Sr. QB.

"You look forward to going to high school and playing for a state championship. Not everybody gets the opportunity to and we're the 20th team to do that at CMR so it's a huge thing here. Tradition means a lot here so it's big for us to be able to make it," said Jed Engerbretsen, CMR Sr. LB.

Making it is one thing. Winning it is another. The Rustlers are going up against a Glacier team who's had their number. The Wolfpack beat the Rustlers in week 2 this year 49-31 and last year, they trounced the Rustlers in the state semi-final 52-7.

"Lately they've kind of been our kryptonite the past few years so we definitely have our work cut out with them but hopefully we can get it done," said Farren.

Glacier's had success not only against the Rustlers, but everyone they've played. The Wolfpack are undefeated and the top ranked team in the state with an offense that leads the AA, scoring 51 points a game and has a defense that allows only 15 points a game.

"Offensively, they have a lot of weapons. They have Logan Jones who's a quick kid and good athlete. Defensively, they fly around and just make plays," said Rustlers Jr. RB Karl Tucker II.

"They can run the ball, they can throw the ball. They got a lot of weapons on offense and they got a good tailback this year. Their quarterback's a two year kid that's made very few mistakes - he's pretty solid so it'll be a challenge," said Gary Lowry, CMR head football coach.

Glacier is the real deal, no question about it. But CMR is in the title game for a reason, too. And they're looking to leave Kalispell with a win.

"Going on the road has been our story this year. We've had a lot of tough games on the road - West, Skyview, Glacier, Helena, we've faced a lot of adversity and i think that defines our team so we wouldn't want it any other way," said Farren.

The Rustler ‘way' is to win State titles and this years team has a chance to end 2014 with the 14th in school history.
