COLUMBIA FALLS – On the high school football field, we have reached state championship week. For a second year in a row, the Hamilton Broncs are still playing. In the KPAX Youth Sports Spotlight, we focus on how their star quarterback helped them get to the final.
Carson Rostad continues to put his name all over the record books. The three-year starter has thrown for more than 2,600 yards and 41 touchdowns this season. According to statistician Brian Reed, Rostad broke the Class A record for touchdown passes in Hamilton’s semifinal win at Columbia Falls.
Oh yeah, and he’s only a junior.
Rostad could absolutely obliterate all of Montana’s passing records before he is done. He admits it’s hard to comprehend that he’s reached this level.
“Yeah, it’s kind of crazy to think, because they’re great. It’s awesome to be up there with them,” said Rostad about joining the other greats on the all-time lists. “Every wide receiver we have is great. They can all catch the ball. Mikey (Golden) can even come out of the backfield and catch it, which is what he did (Saturday).”
“It’s crazy. I’m really happy for him,” added running back Michael Golden. “I’m excited to see him go on and do better things in life.”
Hamilton will go for its first state championship since 1998 at 1 p.m. Saturday. The Broncs will host fellow unbeaten Billings Central in their new stadium that opened a couple weeks ago.
