Recruiting Central

Family ties, Griz fandom lead Butte Central WR Ossello to Montana

on

Although he was just a young boy in Butte, America, Guido Ossello he vividly remembers wanting to be Marc Mariani.

The Butte Central senior and recent University of Montana signee is the grandson of Mick Delaney. For most of his youth, Ossello had an affinity for Colorado State because Delaney was the running backs coach there on Sonny Lubick’s staff.

When Delaney returned to the Treasure State to serve as the running backs coach on Bobby Hauck’s staff in 2008, Ossello got his initial first-hand taste of Mariani and the Grizzlies. And that’s when he first found a hero in Mariana, a UM All-American and former walk-on from Havre who went on to earn Pro Bowl honors for the Tennessee Titans of the NFL.
