BOZEMAN – Bozeman quarterback Kris Brown has always dreamed of playing Division I football, and he’s getting a chance to play with the University of Montana. The senior decided to commit to the Griz football program on Wednesday.

Brown has helped lead Bozeman to a 9-0 record so far this season, while throwing for 1,926 yards and 20 touchdowns through the first eight games. The gunslinger is one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the state, boasting a 68 percent completion rate and a 123.8 quarterback rating. He has also tacked on 358 rushing yards this year, an area greatly improved from his minus-12 all of last season, while adding on four scores on the ground.

The California native moved to Bozeman as a sophomore after spending his freshman year at Charter Oak high school in Covina. He earned the starting job at Bozeman his junior season.

Brown took a lot of motivation for his college football career from his brother Kamden, who briefly spent time on the Montana State Bobcats team as a quarterback. After receiving a handful of offers from NAIA teams, Brown also got one from the Griz. The Bobcats did not chase the 6-foot-4 senior, so he jumped at the offer to fulfill his dream of playing Division I.
