PRESS RELEASE – EMBARGO

DECEMBER 25, 2017

The rosters for the 72nd Annual Montana East-West Shrine Game have been announced.  The game will be played July 21, 2018 in Great Falls, MT. The Montana Shrine Game is the premier all-star game in Montana and has a long history of distinguished players and coaches.  It is one of the oldest high school all-star football games in the United States. Every year since 1947, Montana high schools’ finest players are selected to compete in a game to raise money and to help make the public aware of the expert orthopedic and burn care available at the Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Spokane, Washington. In recent years, the Montana game has become one of the top Shrine Games in the nation for hospital donations. In the last five years this game has raised nearly $500,000.  Forty of Montana’s finest are selected to compete on each team.

 

The East Team will be coached by Levi Wesche from Bozeman High.  Levi played his high school football for Choteau and graduated from Dutton High School in 2001. He played football at MSU-Northern and started his high school coaching career in Bozeman in 2007, the last two years as head coach. Wesche will be coaching in his third Shrine game, this being the first at the helm.

 

Heading the West Team will be Kyle Mihelish from Helena Capital. Kyle played his collegiate career at Montana Western, playing in two national semifinal contests. His first coaching opportunity was in 1996 as an assistant coach to Dale Pohle at Great Falls High. He returned to his alma mater in Helena as an assistant coach and the last three years as head coach at Capital, leading them to three consecutive state semifinal appearances. This will be the fifth time Kyle has coached in this game, the first as head coach.

 

These players were nominated by their schools and coaches across the state, and finally selected as the “best of the best” to participate in the 72nd Montana Shrine Game. They join an elite fraternity of players, many of whom have gone on to distinguished collegiate and professional careers.
