First-year Three Forks High School head football coach Connor Sullivan is pleased with how his team has been preparing for their September 6 opener against Deer Lodge.

"I think the kids have responded well, not only on the field but in the classroom as well Everything they're doing right now is solid. Attacking everything and finishing everything they do," he said.

While many of the teams across the state will open play August 30, Sullivan sees the importance of having an extra week to prepare the team to open the 2019 campaign.

"As bad as we want to get out there and play, we know having that extra week will allow a couple guys to get healthy and study our opponent more with breaking down film," Sullivan said.

Sullivan feels the biggest strength the team will bring to the table this season will be their heart.


"We may not have the numbers as some other schools, but after coaching this team for a short period I know they will fight till the last whistle. Talent and skill you can coach, but heart, passion, and effort you cannot. I don't have to worry about that though because these guys all possess those traits," he said.

Sullivan is also looking for big things from Trenton Nimmick, Tyler Johnson, Jordan Buley, Smokey Jensen and Carter Prentice.

After a standout career at Montana State University, Sullivan said he is really excited to coach in his first game and it will be a new experience for him.

"I might have to sub in a couple plays to get that bone chilling feeling again. But I'm more excited for these kids and the seniors. We will play for them," he said.
