More gridiron news from Mount Si……

Good Saturday morning. It’s raining and we’re hopefully all staying at home and staying healthy today.

Another round of Mount Si football news this morning.

Edson receives another college football scholarship offer, his ninth
Mount Si High School football junior tight end Andrew Edson went on social media last night to announce another college had offered him a football scholarship. This time, it’s the Air Force Academy making that offer.

AFA, located in Colorado Springs, becomes the fifth Mountain West Conference (NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision) school to make Edson an offer, and this is also his ninth total offer, joining fellow MW schools Wyoming, San Jose State, Nevada and Fresno State, along with Eastern Washington, Yale, Montana State and the United States Military Academy (Army). A look at Air Force’s potential roster construction suggests the possibilities here for Edson might be along the same lines as at Fresno, Nevada and San Jose: potential playing time out of the gate as a freshman, perhaps not as a starter, but very high on the depth chart, especially at tight end.

Air Force also becomes the second service academy to make an offer, joining Army as mentioned already. The Falcons, as they are called, finished 11-2 last season and beat Washington State in the Cheez-It Bowl down in Phoenix.

Also:

Two more MSHS sophs get Montana Tech camp invites: Two more Mount Si sophomore players made Twitter announcements yesterday of invites to a camp being hosted by Montana Tech University in Butte, MT.

Cameron Set-Chan and Avery Walker made those announcements, and they will join fellow Wildcat sophs Andy Cole and Jacob Shaffer at the camp, scheduled for June 19, pending lifting of restrictions for COVID-19. Montana is also under a stay-at-home order presently. Cole and Shaffer made their announcements Thursday and we reported those here yesterday.

As we noted yesterday, Set-Chan and Walker will, along with their Wildcat mates, get high level instruction that should help them succeed with Mount Si this fall, and also be exposed to a small-college football program, of which Montana Tech’s is in the Frontier Conference of NAIA. So like with Cole and Shaffer, this is a tremendous opportunity for Walker and Set-Chan, and it is hoped they’ll be able to participate. Incidentally, just so you know, Walker is a QB, Cole and Shaffer are receivers and Set-Chan is a running-back with all also playing defensive positions for the Wildcats. So perhaps if all four go, they might be able to run a drill or two together and bring that back this fall. Good stuff for sure and we congratulate all of you.
