FILER, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Garet Jardine has managed to stand out on a team that has won a total of 15 games since 2010. He will take his talents to Montana Western University, a team that is coming off a 6-4 campaign, including upsets over Rocky Mountain and Montana Tech.
He's most likely going to play free safety for the Bulldogs, despite the coaches appreciating his versatility, knowing he's capable of playing multiple positions.
According to his father, Jardine produced 153 tackles, which would have led the 3A had it been officially monitored.
Against American Falls, he recorded 31 tackles and 500 yards of offense at the quarterback position.
Jardine's looking forward to the next chapter of his life.
"They said you're a quarterback and a DB, we also see you catching one at wide receiver or putting 35 pounds on you and playing linebacker, returning kicks," explained Jardine. "The sky is the limit and I was really humbled they thought I was that skilled."
Assistant coach Tyrone Hess added, "to be able to get noticed here, you have to be able to overcome a lot more obstacles." "You don't get the exposure that you do when you go the playoffs."
Jardine marks the first football player to sign with a collegiate program since Adam Shawver did it in 2015 when he inked with Dickinson State.
