BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — Montana State football coach Rob Ash has announced five preferred walk-ons who will be joining the team this fall, including the sons of two former Bobcat players and a player who returned to the game after having his lower right leg amputated.
Ash says all five will compete for scholarships and help the Bobcats win.
Missoula Hellgate wide receiver and defensive back Hunter Mahlum and Bozeman wide receiver John D'Agostino follow their fathers in becoming Bobcats.
Huntley Project linebacker Koni Dole joins the Bobcats after playing his senior season with a prosthetic leg. He suffered a broken bone in his lower right leg as a junior and, after complications arose, chose to have it amputated so he could return to football with the hopes of playing for Montana State.
Tight end Wilson Brott of Billings West and running back Noah James of Kalispell are also joining the team.
