The 2014 season started last weekend with a full slate of games. There were some great games, too, with some big-time performances from individual athletes.

Montana annually sends more than a few players to Division I college football programs, and there are definitely some of those types of prospects in the state again. It’ll be interesting to track where some of these players decide to play their collegiate ball, but for now we get to watch them tear it up on the high school gridiron.

Here are five players to watch this season (with a local slant), as well as the other names submitted on Twitter:

Holden Ryan, RB, Billings Central – Ryan is as dangerous as they come with the ball in his hands. He’s a threat to score every time he touches it, and Central will look to frequently get him in space.

“Obviously his ability speaks for himself,” said Billings Central coach Jim Stanton. “He’s a team player, and whatever it takes to score points and stop (opposing offenses), he’s all about that. He’s a special kid that we’re going to lean on pretty hard.”

Jonah Oberg, WR/DB, Laurel – Oberg, an all-state player last season, just makes plays for the Locomotives, giving the team a legitimate threat in the passing game. He’s also an excellent ball-hawking safety on the other side of the ball.

Alec Haughian, WR, Miles City – Haughian received all-state honors last season for the Cowboys and is back to expand on his already impressive resume. He’s an elusive runner with the ball in his hands, as evidenced by his four touchdowns in the Cowboys’ opener

Brayden Konkol, QB, Belgrade – Konkol can beat teams in multiple ways, and he does a little bit of everything. “He’s just a good high school football player,”Stanton said. “He’s a real hard-nosed, tough kid that really does whatever needs to be done to get the job done.”

Jesse Sims, TE/LB, Corvallis – According to BeaverBlitz.com, anOregonState recruiting website under Yahoo! Sports’ rivals.com umbrella, Sims has verbally committed to play tight end for the Beavers. The 6-foot-4, 235 pounder blends size and speed to be a disruptive force.
