Brian Urlacher in Great Falls for Triangle Classic

Posted: Updated:

THE NEXT TIME THE MONTANA STATE BOBCATS MEET AS A TEAM-- THEY'LL HAVE A CHANCE TO HEAR FROM ONE OF THE GREATEST LINEBACKERS OF ALL TIME.

BRIAN URLACHER.

"I love talking about football. I still love football. I still watch. If there is a college game on, then I'm watching it. I don't care who is playing or what division it is, I'm watching it. Same thing with the NFL. I just like watching and watching players."

URLACHER COMES TO GREAT FALLS FOR THE ANNUAL TRIANGLE CLASSIC.

HE'LL SHARE HIS STORY WITH THE TEAM AND BOBCAT FANS-- INCLUDING HOW HE WENT FROM A HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETE WITH ONE SCHOLARSHIP OFFER TO A PRO BOWL LINEBACKER.

"Guys would give me crap because I went to New Mexico. I would tell them, "Well I'm where you're at now buddy." It doesn't really matter now. It's fun to talk to these guys who may not think they have a chance to make it. Once you get into a camp and show people what you have, you have to take advantage of it."

THE TRIANGLE CLASSIC DOESN'T JUST END WITH URLACHER.

TOMORROW THE TEAM WILL HOLD A SCRIMMAGE, GIVING FANS IN NORTH-CENTRAL MONTANA A CHANCE TO SEE THEIR FAVORITE SQUAD.

"we have great fans all over this state so the opportunity to get on the road and give thanks to fans that we ask to come to our place 6 or 7 times a year, and throw in basketball it's a lot more. So the chance to take our coaches on the road to see our fans that support us all year is a chance to get into the market and come to Great Falls."

FOR NOW-- TONIGHT IS ALL ABOUT URLACHER.

WHERE HE'LL PASS ON SOME FINAL ADVICE TO THE PLAYERS WHO LOOK UP TO HIM.

"If you can play, then they're going to find you. That's the way I look at it. If you can get into a camp and can play, they're going to find you. Once you get there, it doesn't matter where you came from."
