  2019 PRESEASON BUTKUS AWARD WATCH LIST: Dante Olson, Montana,...The preseason accolades continue to roll in for Montana senior linebacker Dante Olson, today named to the 35th annual Butkus Award collegiate watch list honoring the nation's top Division-I linebacker. He is the only player from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) to make the list. Olson is also only the second player in Montana history, and the second in as many years to be named to the prestigious watch list following Josh Buss' recognition in 2018. Devin White of Louisiana State won the Butkus Award that season before being selected fifth in the NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Olson, a 6-3, 237-pound senior from Medford, Ore., is coming off one of the most productive defensive seasons in Montana and Big Sky Conference history with a school-record and FCS-best 151 total tackles. He has since been named to seven All-America teams, was a top-three finalist for the 2018 Buck Buchanan Award, earned first-team all-conference honors, and was named Montana's Steve Carlson team MVP. - Montana Football

  2019 PRESEASON ALL-BIG SKY FOOTBALL TEAM: ILB: Dante Olson, Sr., Montana,..."Dante has worked extremely hard to get to this point – coming from a place of almost complete anonymity last September to being one of the most recognized players in the conference now. I'm excited to watch him this year. He is a difference-maker for this team," said Montana head coach Bobby Hauck. Olson, a 6-3, 237-pound linebacker from Medford, Ore., had one of the best defensive seasons in Grizzly history as a junior. In addition to being named to seven different All-America teams, he earned first-team All-Big Sky honors and won Montana's Steve Carlson MVP award.

"This recognition is a huge honor, and I couldn't be more humbled. God has blessed me in more ways than I will ever know. But I wouldn't have received it if it weren't for my brothers who I go to battle with every day or the coaches who strive to make us better each day. That being said, I'm fired up going into the 2019 season," said Olson from Spokane where he is one of two Grizzlies representing the team at the Kickoff. - Montana Football
