WHITEHALL — Whitehall’s Max Feight signed his national letter of intent on Wednesday to play football at the University of Montana.

Its been quite the year for Feight. During summer practices, he was poised for a standout senior season. However, Feight tore his ACL in the first game of the year.

But to cap off the adversity he’s faced this season with a spot on the Griz has made everything worth it.

“I was very happy that after my injury and not being able to play this year they still wanted me, and I was grateful to still have that opportunity,” Feight said.

And as only the second player to play football for the Griz from Whitehall, Feight is happy to start that legacy back up.

“It kind of says a lot about the people I’ve had in my life — my family, my coaches, the people I played with. I couldn’t have done it without them. My victory is their victory,” Feight said.

“(I’m) super proud of him. It’s been an awesome year for him,” Whitehall head football coach Dan Lacey said. “He’s had some hills to climb throughout the injury and everything. I’m just so happy that the Grizzlies were still willing to give him a chance. He’s a great kid, great student, and it really shows the kind of athletes we have here at Whitehall, as well.”
