Butte Central lineman Richards commits to ‘Cats

on

Aaron Richards is the first to admit he’s still getting used to his new athletic identity.

“I’m not going to lie, I was definitely a Griz guy for awhile,” Richards said with a chuckle as he took a break from enjoying a beautiful July summer day on Flathead Lake. “When my brother (Jonathan Richards) was playing there, I was at every home game.

“And one of my best friend’s grandpas is (former University of Montana head football coach) Mick Delaney. It was a little tough switching over but I think it’s going to be good.”

Richards, a standout offensive and defensive linemen from Butte Central, will be the third from his family this decade to compete in the Big Sky Conference. Unlike his older brother, Jonathan, and his cousin, Aschan, Aaron Richards has given his verbal commitment to the Montana State Bobcats.
