Tuesday night, the Grizzly Scholarship Association held it's annual 'University of Montana Coaches Barbecue' at the Mansfield Convention Center in Great Falls.

Long-time Great Falls resident Morty Boyd, and his bride of 54 years, Maggie enjoyed the festivities. Morty, who celebrated his 93rd birthday on Monday attended the U of M right after World War II, from 1946 to 1950. He was a member of the Phi Delt Fraternity and played on the University's golf team. He's still a big Griz fan, and was excited to meet the coaches, most notably head football coach Bob Stitt.

"I think it was fantastic, he did a wonderful job. It was a great move to bring him to the University," Morty says about Stitt.

Morty even had a chance to meet with Stitt to talk about how the football team is looking next year. He also got his 'Stitt Happens' T-shirt signed by the man himself! It was a pretty neat way to celebrate his 93rd birthday!
