DILLON — Connor Schulte will get to play football on two good legs once again.
The Butte Central lineman who played much of his senior season with a torn ACL has signed to play football at the University of Montana Western, Bulldog coach B.J. Robertson announced Friday.
Robertson also announced the signing of Helena’s Jesse Seliskar to a Frontier Conference/NAIA Letter of Intent.
Schulte is a 5-foot-10, 240-pound lineman who started on both sides of the ball for three seasons. Robertson listed Schulte as an offensive signee.
As a sophomore was selected as an honorable mention All-Conference defensive player and he followed that honor with second team All-Conference offensive tackle his junior year.
As a senior, Schulte earned first-team All-Conference at guard. He didn’t play defense after tearing an ACL in a key win at Anaconda. Schulte took home Butte Central’s Last Man Award.
Off the field, Schulte is a member of the National Honors Society as well as an Academic All-State honoree. He plans to study secondary education with a history emphasis.
Schulte is the son of Pat and Tane Schulte.
