If you’re a Cut Bank Wolves football fan, you’ll be excited to know two of this year’s players’ careers won’t be ending in a Wolves jersey. Dayne Barbie and Hayden Hedges have signed to play college football.

Dayne, the son of Kathleen and Peter Barbie, will play for the Carroll College Saints in Helena. “We are excited to have Dayne as a part of the Carroll football family,” said Alex Pfannenstiel, Assistant Coach and Offensive Coordinator at Carroll College. “We’re fired up that he’s going to continue to wear purple and gold. He’s an outstanding young man that comes from a great family and community. From early in the recruiting process, it became obvious that Dayne was not only a very talented athlete, but an outstanding young man and leader as well.”

Pfannenstiel described Barbie as a “great fit for Carroll College, and we can’t wait to see the positive impact that he’ll have on the field, in the classroom, and in the Carroll Community.”

Hayden, the son of Jessica and Mike Hedges, will be playing for the University of Montana-Western Bulldogs in Dillon. “We are excited to have Hayden in our program. He’s a tough physical player who loves to play football and will be a great addition to our talented running back room,” stated Ryan Nourse, Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator for the Bulldogs.

Dylan Johnston, head coach of the Cut Bank Wolves football team, praised both Barbie and Hedges as outstanding players and leaders on and off the field. “Dayne and Hayden have been incredible players, role models, and teammates for the CBHS football program for the last four years. We can’t thank them enough for everything they did, and for leaving the program better than they found it. I am very excited to see them continue to compete and excel at the next level.”
