The Montana Tech Mens Basketball team have picked up an impressive, Montana-grown big man in their quest for a fourth consecutive Frontier Conference Title in Rhett Reynolds who has spent the past 2 seasons at the University of Montana.  The following is a release from the Montana Tech Sports Information Department:

The 6-9 redshirt freshman from Shelby, Montana, announced Wednesday that he is joining the three-time Frontier Conference Champion Orediggers of Montana Tech. At Shelby, Rhett was a three-sport athlete, playing football, running track, and of course basketball. Rhett was all-conference as well as all-state in basketball, in both his sophomore and junior seasons. As a senior, he averaged 24 points a game. A two-year captain, he helped the Coyotes to a district and divisional championship in his junior year, and a 4th place finish at state in his senior campaign. Rhett redshirted his first season at the University of Montana. This season, his redshirt freshman year, he was able to get on the floor in 11 games. In those games he averaged 2 minutes of playing time, getting a season-high of 6 minutes against Northwest Indian College. He was able to get three points, and a pair of rebounds against Northern Arizona on January 13th for his highs.

"We couldn't be more ecstatic to add Rhett Reynolds to our basketball program," said Oredigger Head Coach Adam Hiatt.  "He is an elite prospect that will quickly become a game-changer for us. Having played two years for the Griz, a program we respect greatly, is an added bonus, as we know he has been taught well and knows how to win. Rhett has all the physical and character tools to be a significant impact player in the Frontier Conference. Today is a GREAT day to be an Oredigger!"

Rhett will join his teammates in Butte this summer and get ready for Fall Semester. Reynolds plans on majoring in Business at Montana Tech.

sexual orientation or denial of family medical leave."

That being said, here are some other ridiculous reasons you can get let go in California...
