Montana's Elite Prepare for 6-Man All-Star Game

Posted: Updated:

Tomorrow in the Highwood Mountains 40 of the state's elite 6-man football players will all come together under the lights. 

On one sideline you have the Red Team. The group heavily features six Valier Panthers and a handful of guys from state runner-up Bridger. Head Coach Mike Mathis says it's challenging getting all the players on the same page, but he's confident his guys have what it takes to come out a touchdown ahead on Saturday.

"We've got a really good mix. We've got some size, we have some speed, we have a couple of kids who can throw the ball really well. A couple of kids who can run hard, too, so for a football game it should be really exciting for the fans."

On the other side, you have the Blue Team; dominated by five players from state champion MonDak. 

"Individually we have a lot of talent but my job is to get everyone to be a team," said Blue Team head coach Troy Walters. "The team that comes together the best is the one that typically wins the game."

At the professional level, all-star games are seen more as entertainment. But these teams expect their game to be competitive as well.

"The only thing that matters is if we get the win or not. Hopefully everyone plays well and we come out on top," said Blue Team receiver Treyton Pickering.

"A lot of these kids want to represent their communities so we expect a heck of a game between the red and the blue team," Walters added.
