The Montana Tech Oredigger Football team is gearing up for their 2023 Signing Party. The event is coming up this Wednesday (2.22.23) at the Knights of Columbus in uptown Butte, starting at 6:30 pm.

The Oredigger Football team is coming off a 7-3 campaign, finishing 3rd in the Frontier Conference. Under 3rd year Head Coach Kyle Samson, the Orediggers have gone 12-8 in 2 full seasons of play. (losing the 2020 season to Covid)

This year’s recruiting class is incredibly deep, with 35 student-athletes signing with Montana Tech, 27 of those from Montana. The 8 athletes from out of state include 4 from Idaho, 2 from Wyoming, and one each from Washington and California.

"This is our third full recruiting class as a staff and we are very proud that we have been able to bring in some of the top recruits in Montana and in the northwest. We are very proud to add two of the top kids from our hometown right here in Butte."  Head Coach Kyle Samson

The 2 players from Butte he is referring to are Jace Stenson, and Zach Tierney

The group with the most incoming recruits is the Defensive line, with 6 athletes coming in, and right with them is the Offensive line with 5 signees. Having depth at both of those spots is incredibly important, but not a luxury that is enjoyed very often in the Frontier Conference.

The signing class also boasts 2 talented Quarterbacks, Jake Casagranda from Bozeman, and Jarrett Wilson from Polson High School. Adding these two to a very talented QB room is going to create some outstanding competition for years to come.
