Some of Montana State's greatest football players, were walk ons. Not having things handed to you drives kids to work hard. That's true for Drummond's Mac Bignell, who will be a preferred walk on at MSU in the Fall.
"It's gonna motivate me. It's gonna help me a lot," said Bignell.
His teammates and coaches noticed how valuable Mac was to the Trojans this past season.
The greatest thing about Mac is his heart. Ball games the Chester game comes to mind he just willed the ball into the endzone he's that kind of a ball player." said Drummond Head Coach Jim Oberweiser.
"Mac is one heck of a player we see him working hard and just makes you want to play better. We feed off him," said Drummond teammate John Manley.
There's something special about Class C players like Mac. They were born to work hard in any setting.
"A lot of the Montana kids, and this is true for Mac the first words they learn are Mama and Da Da. But then it's chores. So Mac is back in the field for as long as he could walk. Homework, football, it's just one more thing they take seriously." said Oberweiser.
" I've known him forever he's that kid that always has to be winning everything so I guarantee when he goes down there he'll be trying his but off. He's gonna earn himself playing time that's just the way he is." said Manley.
