Butte High graduate Jon Allen was added to the West team roster for the 67th Montana East-West Shrine game, West team coordinator Jeff Hartwick said today.
Allen will join the team for the 3 p.m. practice at Montana Tech’s Bob Green Field.
The receiver was added because Bigfork receiver Chris Landon, who signed to play basketball at Montana Western, suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday’s practice. Landon will be unable to play, but he’ll remain on the West roster.
The addition of Allen means Butte will have eight players representing the West team during Saturday’s game, which kicks off at 7 p.m. at Naranche Stadium in Butte.
Other Butte players are Zach Bunney, Nick Butorovich, Anthony Moritz, Drew Schleeman, Bryce Armstrong, Northey Tretheway and Joe Joyce.
