BOZEMAN — Early honors continued to accumulate for Mac Bignell Monday when STATS named Montana State’s senior linebacker to its Preseason All-America squad.
Bignell, named a Preseason All-Big Sky player at the league’s Summer Kickoff two weeks ago, anchors the Bobcat defense entering the 2017 campaign. The Drummond product was Second Team All-Big Sky as a junior, when he averaged 1.32 tackles-for-loss, third in the league, and 3.5 total tackles, seventh. As a sophomore he finished among the top 10 players in the FCS in both those categories.
Montana State opens practice for the 2017 season on Thursday.
