Former Montana State wide receiver Arie Grey will coach the West all stars tomorrow night. Two of his players, Helena Capitals's Gunnar Brekke and Glacier's Devin Jeffries, will play at MSU in the Fall. And the future Cats impress the former Cat.
"The thing about those two is they have phenomenal motors they play hard you gotta pull them back they go a little too hard you're like hey it's Sunday or Monday let's save it for the game but it doesn't matter with them they have one speed and that's fast," said Arie Grey.
Grey was a stand out during his days in Bozeman, and the two soon to be Bobcats say it's an honor to play for him.
"It's very special because you want to do everything he does, and to have the success he has. I've known Coach Grey for a while he used to coach at Glacier before going to Butte so he's a very laid back guy you have so much respect for him," said Devin Jeffries.
"You follow him for sure the way he goes about things his personality traits I mean honestly he had success at MSU so if you can take those intangibles that he had maybe you can have the same success," said Gunnar Brekke.
They also like his coaching. It's all about the love of the game.
"We're only in full pads twice this week so he just really knows that if it's fun and laid back we're gonna be ready to go on Saturday night," said Jeffries.
"He's just big on having fun you get some of these coaches coming to these games and they're really worried about representing their schools and winning the game and I know he is to don't get be wrong but he goes about it a different way and just keeps everyone relaxed," said Brekke.
Coach Grey says it'll be cool to look back and "remember when."
"Couple of years looking back seeing them play in the Big Sky it'll be fun to know hey we got to spend a couple weeks with these guys and they're great kids they compete and do everything the right way and I can see why they're playing at Montana State."
