Tanner Wilson, Ryan Arntson, R.J. Fitzgerald and Marcus Welnel will captain the West Side in Saturday’s 71st Montana East-West Shrine Game in Billings.
The captains were voted on by their teammates and announced to the public on the radio show KBOW Wednesday night at the Metals Sports Bar and Grill.
Wilson and Arntson will captain the West offense, while Fitzgerald and Welnel will lead the defense. All four are headed to college football programs next month.

Fitzgerald is a 5-11, 210-pound linebacker from Dillon. He will play for the Montana State Bobcats.
