Big Sky Conference

Glacier S Pepe relieved by commitment to the Griz


Deciding where to attend college is one of the most important decisions an individual will make. But Jackson Pepe has more pressing things to worry about in his immediate future.

Pepe, a two-way stud for Kalispell Glacier, has a senior year filled with redemption ahead of him, or at least he hopes. He has been mulling over his football future for a while now, waiting for the right opportunity to present itself. When it did and the Montana Grizzlies offered a scholarship, he jumped at the chance.

It took just seven days between Montana offering and Pepe, slated as a safety at the college level, committing. The decision allows him to concentrate on his senior season, one he hopes begins with revenge on Friday night and ends with a Class AA state championship trophy.
