ARTICLE EXCERPT: In March 2008, Brock Osweiler walked into the Flathead Beacon office. He towered over Myers Reece (the Flathead High School junior stood 6’7”), shook the reporter’s hand and smiled as he answered questions about his basketball season, which would be his last.
A week later Osweiler was featured on our inaugural “Best of Preps” cover, an idea Reece, photographer Lido Vizzutti and I hatched to feature portraits and vignettes of some of the best high school athletes in Flathead County. Four years later, Osweiler entered the NFL draft as one of top quarterback prospects in the country. In hindsight, his decision to forgo his high school senior basketball season to focus on football appears like the right one.
