DICKINSON, N.D. — Dickinson State head football coach Pete Stanton officially announced the additions of 10 signings, including four Montanans, on Tuesday.

Dawson McGlothlin is moving closer to home. The former Sidney High School standout is transferring to DSU after spending 2017 and 2018 at the University of Montana. McGlothlin, who will play defensive back for the Blue Hawks, was a two-time all-state player for the Eagles, helping the team to a semifinal appearance in the 2016 Class A state playoffs.

“We are thrilled (for) Dawson coming to Dickinson State after being in school at the University of Montana the last few years. He is a guy we really liked coming out of high school. He is a well-rounded athlete with great ball skills,” Stanton said in a DSU release. “Dawson will give us help as a defensive back and will add a lot to our team.”

Joining McGlothlin as future Blue Hawks are high school seniors Andres Lopez of Malta, Nick Konesky of Great Falls CMR and Ethyn Taylor of Billings Skyview.

“Andres brings a hard-nosed physical style of football to our program,” Stanton said of the 5-foot-11, 200-pound running back. “We are very excited to get a player from such a great program. We can’t wait to get him on our campus this fall.”

Of Konesky, a 6-foot, 245-pound defensive lineman, Stanton said: “Nick is a powerful defensive lineman and a tremendous worker in the weight room. The Blue Hawks are very excited to get a player of his caliber from one of the most storied football programs in the state of Montana.”

Taylor was a versatile player at Skyview in 2018, playing multiple positions for the Falcons. At 5-7, 145 pounds, Taylor figures to play as a slot receiver at DSU.

“Ethyn is a hard worker that has a great passion for playing the game of football,” Stanton said. “He is eager to get to DSU and be a part of our program. We are excited about him and his family joining ours.”

Dickinson State also announced the additions of: offensive lineman Eric Rauda (Pasadena City College, Calif.), wide receiver Joshua “Jay Tee” Taylor (East Los Angeles College, Calif.), offensive lineman Dakota Aaseth (Velva High School, N.D.), kicker/punter Enrique Lozana (Pasadena City College, Calif.), offensive lineman Brandon Bennick (Torrington High School, Wyo.), and tight end Logan Kuntz (Richardson High School, N.D.).

DSU went 9-3 in 2018, winning the North Star Athletic Association conference championship and advancing to the second round of the NAIA national playoffs.
