GREAT FALLS – The annual Triangle Classic Banquet for the Montana State football team was once again hosted at Four Seasons Arena on Friday, April 13th. The team arrived right as dinner started and that’s when the festivities began. Dozens of items were raffled and auctioned off from court side seats to a MSU basketball game this coming season, signed memorabilia by Jeff Choate and the entire team, helmets signed by guest speaker Rod Woodson, and even tickets to the Kentucky derby. Coaches like Choate and Brian Fish were in attendance. Woodson got up and and a speech of his own. It was a fun night had by all, and meant a little more to the hometown kids, like CMR alum Karl Tucker.
“It’s cool to see, this is my first year doing this actually. It’s cool to see all the people that are coming and donating for the school,” said Tucker. “It’s pretty cool. It’s a relief that spring ball is over, it would have been kind of nice to (have a scrimmage here) but the fact that spring ball is over and we have no injuries is really good.”
The team is done with spring ball, so it won’t have the usual scrimmage in Great Falls on Saturday, April 14th. But, the Cats will be back for the kids camps at Great Falls High that same day.
