A pair of Montana State offensive linemen retire from Bobcats

on

A pair of Montana State offensive linemen slated to be fifth-year seniors when the Bobcats next take the field have decided to move on to the next chapters of their lives.

Jake Sessions, a 6-foot-5, 305-pound guard/tackle from Colstrip, and Denver Krone, a 6-foot-1, 280-pound center from Augusta by way of Choteau, are no longer on the MSU football roster, a school spokesman confirmed earlier this week.

Although neither player was slated to be an opening day starter for the Bobcats the next time they take the field — the Big Sky Conference is reportedly going to release a spring schedule in early November but many point toward the fall of 2021 as a more realistic option to start playing football again — both Sessions and Krone started games in 2019.

And both played key roles for the Bobcats over the last few years, helping Montana State fortify its depth on its offensive line as Jeff Choate has built the program into one that lost six straight Big Sky games to begin the 2016 season to one that is gunning for a third straight playoff berth in 2021.
