Lewistown WR Trafton finds right fit, commits to Montana State


Tanner Trafton has been the talk of Lewistown for the last month or so.

His 6-foot-6 frame has turned heads wherever he goes in Montana for quite some time. But it’s his verbal commitment to continue his football career at Montana State next season that has the folks of Fergus County talking.

“The support has been amazing, especially from my family since I have a huge family here,” Trafton said in an interview on Sunday night. “They all live in town and they come to every single one of my sporting events. They are all super excited.

“There’s a good base of Bobcat fans in Lewistown and they all invited me up to their box seats the next game I came to tell me how proud they are of me. The support here has been great. It seems like every time I go out, people wish me the best of luck and say they are excited to watch me in the future, which has been super cool.”
