Three members of Manhattan’s football team have been selected to participate in the 74th Montana East-West Shrine Game July 18 in Billings.
Josh Dyk, Spencer Oldenberger and Lane Veltkamp will compete for the West. Dyk and Veltkamp are defensive selections at defensive end and cornerback, respectively, while Oldenberger will play along the offensive line.
The trio helped the Tigers post an 11-1 record and reach the state Class B championship game this past season. All three were two-way players, and Oldenberger and Veltkamp earned All-State honors.
Veltkamp was also a first team all-conference selection in the Southern B conference at quarterback and defensive back. He completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,821 yards with 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, and rushed for 1,142 yards and 13 scores.
Oldenberger was a first team selection at offensive and defensive linemen. He led the team with 7.5 sacks and had 16 tackles for loss.
Dyk was a first team selection at defensive end after tallying 59 tackles (nine for loss), six sacks, three pass break ups and a fumble recovery.
Bozeman had five selections on the West squad.
For the East team, Belgrade’s Zayne Konkol was selected as an alternate at defensive lineman. The Panthers competed in their first season as a Class AA program this past season and finished with a 1-8 record.
