Western signs Bozeman’s Laakso

The University of Montana Western football coach B.J. Robertson announced this morning the signing of Bozeman senior Wyatt Laakso to a Frontier Conference/NAIA letter of intent.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Laakso was the starting center for the state champion Bozeman Hawks. Robertson said he plays with intensity and determination.

Wyatt had 95 career knockdowns and had better than half of those his senior year when he tallied 53.  Laakso was selected as the 2013 first-team All-State at center. His team voted him for the Hawk Best Lineman Award two years running following the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

As a junior Wyatt was selected as an honorable mention all-conference player in 2012.

“We are very excited to add another state champion to the Bulldog football family,” Robertson said. “Wyatt plays with tremendous explosiveness and tenacity on the offensive line. We love the thought of every offensive play starting in the hands of a guy with those innate traits.”

Wyatt plans to study business management.  He is the son of Rod and Shelley Laakso.
