BOZEMAN — Tight end Treyton Pickering represents small-town Montana when he takes the gridiron for the No. 3 Montana State Bobcats every Saturday.

He hails from Sunburst, a north-central Montana community of just over 300 people situated along the Canadian border.

In a sit-down interview this week with MTN Sports' Grace Lawrence, Pickering reflects on his 6-Man football and Class C basketball days, which he says left him with life lessons he still uses today.
