Huntley Project RB Sumner commits to Bobcats


Above all else, Lane Sumner is most excited for the complete immersion into a culture dedicated to a love of football.

The Huntley Project standout running back and state champion sprinter is known for his work ethic. The Red Devils football program, one of Class B’s strongest thanks to the steady guidance of former Montana football player Guy Croy, has produced a string of Division I talent in recent years thanks in part to the culture of dedication cultivated by the coach. Strength coach Adam Husk, a former standout football player at Rocky Mountain College, has refined one of the top small-school training programs in the state.

Sumner has embraced the tenants of the program. It’s helped him turn into one of the state’s most dynamic play-makers and fastest runners. Last fall, he scored 15 touchdowns, including 13 on the ground. He racked up more than 1,200 total yards to earn Class B all-state honors. In the spring, he won the Class B state title in the 100 meters for the second straight year.
