The Capital High Freshman Football Team finished their season undefeated (7-0) with a win over the Helena High Bengals on October 26th, 2019.

The team was led by captains Dylan Graham, Tommy Carter, Hayden Opitz, Tyler Kovick, and Tyler Roberts who all had roles on both the offense and defense.

The offense was led by a trio of quarterbacks which consisted of Hudsen Grovom, Joey Michelotti, and Jacob Brown. Their success was helped by an offensive line that includes Jackson Anderson, Paul Mousel, Luke Dowdy, Kinden Wareham and David Marshall Jr.

Dylan Graham, Nick Michelotti, and Eddie Purdin, also appreciated the hard working big men whenever they ran ball. Overall, Dylan Graham led the bruins in rushing yards and touchdowns, while Tommy Carter led the team in receiving yards. Other members of the receiving core were, Kellan McCauley, Cole Wines, Jaiden Loar, Colton Lindgren, and Jack Drynan.

Defensively, the Bruins worked around an outstanding d-line, which featured Talon Marsh, Hayden Opitz, and Tyler Roberts.

Bruin linebackers included Tyler Kovick, Joey Lauerman, Henry Gross, Justin Bisset, Skyler Knowles, Mitchel Renk, Kinser Lyman, Wyatt Benhart, Kolton Laverdure, and Kody McLean.

A steady rotation between Cole Christensen, Ayden Smelko, Truett Ames, Dylan Chisholm, Joey Michelotti, Tommy Carter, Quinn Hanson, Tyson Mooney, Brandon Soule, and Hayden Hecker always kept the defensive backs eager to make the most of their opportunities.
