Western football adds three Broncs

DILLON — University of Montana Western head football coach B.J. Robertson announced today the signing of three Hamilton seniors to Frontier Conference/NAIA letters of intent to play football for the Bulldogs.

Signing with the Bulldogs are Southwestern A offensive MVP Josh Bauder, All-State receiver Teague Blome and first team all-conference linebacker Matthew Turley.

Bauder is a 6-foot-0, 195-pound quarterback who roamed the Bronc secondary as well.  He threw for 2,873 yards and 23 touchdowns while rushing for 150 yards and seven touchdowns his senior year.  He was selected as the first team All-State quarterback as well as conference offensive MP.

Bauder was the starting quarterback for three years and earned conference honors for his play all three seasons. Bauder showed his athleticism by also lettering in basketball and track the past three years.

“Josh has a live arm and is a strong physical kid,” Robertson said.  “He comes from a passing offense that was coached by former Western Bulldog quarterback Travis Blome.”

Off the field Bauder is part of the honor roll and H-club.  He plans to study secondary education while attending Montana Western.  He is the son of Dean and Wendy Bauder.

Blome is a 6-foot, 170-pound wide receiver/safety. During his senior season he had 1,000 yards receiving and 13 touchdowns while being selected to the All-State team.

Defensively, Blome had four interceptions and earned first team all-conference honors as a safety.  Teague was selected as an all-conference safety as a junior and a second team all-conference safety as a sophomore.  In addition to his exploits on the football field he has been selected to the All-State1,600-meter relay team in track.

“Teague is a ball hawk on offense and on defense,” Robertson said.  “He has a great feel for the game and has that big play ability we look for.  We are thrilled he is joining the Bulldog football family.”

Blome plans to study physical education while attending Montana Western.  He was coached by his brother and former Bulldog Travis Blome while attending Hamilton High School.  Teague is the son of Jim and Tracey Blome.

Turley is a 5-10, 175-pound linebacker.  He earned first team all-conference recognition following his senior season.  In addition to being a part of the Bronc football team Mathew has lettered in track three years.

“We liked the toughness and grit Mathew displayed at our camp this summer,” Robertson said.  “We are excited to add that type of kid to our program.”

Off the field Turley has been named to the honor roll for his work in the classroom.  He plans to study elementary education while attending Montana Western.  Mathew is the son of Mike Turley and Kathy Weston.
