WHITEFISH — Rocky Mountain College defensive back Ty Reynolds was named the Frontier Conference football defensive player of the week on Monday.
Reynolds, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound strong safety from Daphne, Ala., recorded one solo tackle and two interceptions in Rocky’s come-from-behind victory at Montana State-Northern on Saturday. The Battlin' Bears rallied past the Lights for a 24-21 win on Saturday in the first-ever game played on MSU-Northern's Tilleman Field. It was the final game of the 2021 spring football season for Rocky, which ended the campaign at 1-3.
The final games of the Frontier's spring schedule are this weekend. MSU-Northern (0-3) hosts Eastern Oregon (2-1) on Saturday, and Carroll College (2-1) hosts College of Idaho (3-0).
