BUTTE — Butte High School's Kobe and Kameron Moreno made their commitment to Montana Tech official. The two brothers put ink to paper to play football for new head coach Kyle Samson and the Oredigger program.
“Feels great. I’m just glad we have such a big following and that we have a lot of people supporting us," said Kameron Moreno.
“It feels awesome to have so much support from everybody, and it feels good to get it out of the way," added brother Kobe Moreno.
And coach Samson believes the brothers embody everything he plans to build his program around.
“Kids with high character, you know, on and off the field. Great leadership skills, and just that competitiveness that we need," said Samson. "I think they’re just a tremendous fit for what we’re trying to build, and I expect them to come in and be great contributors to our program.”
“They love the 6 a.m. workouts, they love the running and the lifting and all those things. So, those are the things that are hard to get kids to fall in love with, and they fell in love with it pretty quickly," said Butte High football head coach Arie Grey. "They’re going to bring that energy and effort into the weight room and onto the practice field for Montana Tech.”
The signing culminated everything the Moreno brothers have worked so hard for the past four years as Butte High Bulldogs.
"Playing football in the NAIA, I can't wait. It's a dream come true playing in Butte. I can't wait to get on the field again," Kameron said.
"(Samson is) the one we wanted," added Kobe. "We're just excited to get started."
