The Frontier Conference honored longtime Butte sportswriter Bruce Sayler with a service award during the Montana Tech-Carroll College football game Saturday on the Bob Green Field.
Sayler was presented the award by Frontier Commissioner Kent Paulson and Montana Tech Chancellor Don Blackketter during a timeout in the second quarter,
Sayler, also known affectionately as the “Big Boss,” has covered the Frontier Conference for nearly 40 years, first as The Montana Standard. He has been writing for ButteSports since the website launched in August 2012.
“Bruce Sayler might not have put the Frontier Conference on the map, but he certainly helped color the star,” longtime colleague Bill Foley said in a statement. “Through nearly 40 years covering the Frontier, Bruce has helped put the league on the pedestal where it belongs. His writing made sure that the spotlight always shone bright on the men and women of Montana Tech and their opponents.”
Sayler, 64, and his wife Eileen have five children and 14 grandchildren.3 comments
