Only the names have been changed to...no, wait. Same names, just more national preseason honors.

Do you think it's fair to say that these guys are on the national Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) radar? University of Montana Sports Information Director Eric Taber reports that once  again, four of the brightest stars on the 2022 Montana Grizzly football team have earned recognition on a preseason All-America team.

This time it's the Stats Perform Preseason All-America team, a lineup compiled by prominent FCS analyst Craig Haley. Eric tells us that linebacker Patrick O'Connell, cornerback Justin Ford, and kick returner/wide receiver Malik Flowers have all been named to the Stats preseason first team. Safety Robby Hauck earned a spot on the second team.

Just last week, all four of these players, along with Griz defensive lineman Alex Gubner, were also named to the Big Sky Conference preseason all-conference team, during the annual kickoff event.

And here are your Stats first-team preseason All-America picks, which include 6 Big Sky Conference standouts:
