Griz pluck Cheney DE McGourin out of Eastern Washington’s backyard

on

Growing up in Cheney, Washington, Jacob McGourin was in Eastern Washington’s backyard.

But when the time came for him to pick a college, McGourin elected to go with another Big Sky power, committing to Montana on September 26.

“I went there and the Griz culture is just unprecedented,” McGourin said. “It was amazing. The coaches there have so much experience, and I feel like I have so much to learn from them. I feel like I fit in better there than anywhere else.”

McGourin picked the Griz over his hometown team. The decision was made even more difficult because McGourin’s dad had played for the Eagles in the early 1990s.
