In case you live under a rock, you may have heard the Butte High Bulldogs made more magic happen at Naranche stadium last Friday as they hosted the top seeded Glacier Wolfpack in a game of the ages.

Butte High has a defense that never gives up, they are relentless in their pursuit of giving the offense more possessions, they have players that have that next play mentality and a coaching staff that is like the dad that has hit all the potholes in life, helping their squad dodge any they see in their way.
