Previewing the Top 10 high school football teams in Montana: No. 7 Hamilton Broncs

Many feel the Broncs are the team to beat in 'A' - mainly because they arguably have the classification's top player in QB/DB Tyson Rostad.

SBLive Montana is previewing the Top 10 high school football teams in the state ahead of the 2021 season. Here’s an inside look at the Hamilton Broncs of the ‘A’ West Region – No. 7 in our countdown.


10-1 (first place in ‘A’ West Region); lost in ‘A’ semifinals.


  • Bryce Carver, third season.
  • Overall record: 19-4.
  • Quick fact: Coaching is in his blood. His father (Brett) is a longtime assistant at Dillon, and sister (Mandi) is an assistant women's basketball coach at Fresno State University.


Sure, there are some questions to answer. After all, the West’s top seed to the playoffs a year ago graduated its explosive running back tandem of Ben Tack and Ben Ronney, along with leading receiver Jaden Klemundt.

But the Broncs do enjoy the luxury of returning maybe the best all-around player in the 'A' ranks – Tyson Rostad.

A preseason all-state defensive back, Rostad also touches the ball on virtually every offensive play from his quarterback position. As a junior, he led the Broncs to the state semifinals, and engineered a comeback from two scores down to tie the game (21-21) against Laurel late before the Locomotives tallied the game-winning score late in the fourth quarter.
