Griz Great Scott Gragg Named Principal at Fort Benton High/Middle School

Posted: Updated:

One of the greatest Montana Grizzlies of all-time is now the new principal at Fort Benton High School.

Scott Gragg has accepted the position, according to Fort Benton's incoming Superintendent Jory Thompson, who tells KFBB that Gragg was one of 22 applicants for the job.

Thompson says Gragg was selected to oversee the high school and middle school because he is "genuine, analytical, and has a great passion for leadership."

Gragg's official start date will be August 17th, however, Thompson says the longtime NFL offensive lineman will be in Fort Benton several times before that to help fill teaching openings.

Gragg is a Silverton, Oregon native. According to his bio on the University of Montana's athletics website, he is a 1995 graduate of Montana with a degree in mathematics. He attained his Masters in Teaching in 2009 at George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon.

Gragg was an All-Big Sky Conference selection along the offensive line in 1993 and 1994. He was a second round draft pick of the New York Giants and started 151 games in the NFL, playing with the Giants, San Francisco 49ers and the New York Jets. He served as the Co-Offensive Coordinator for the Griz last season and was inducted into the Grizzly Sports Hall of Fame in 2009.
