Football: From the Billings Gazette (http://www.greatfallstribune.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071202/SPORTS/712020330/1006/SPORTS), December 4, 2007, Brock is named to the First Team All-State Football team. Gosh darn it, I wish he'd muster up another couple inches of height, as he said he'd give up football completely if he grew some more.

Sure does make a pretty quarterback, though, as shown in this Heisman trophy stance from a Daily Interlake story (http://www.dailyinterlake.com/articles/2007/08/18/sports/sports01.txt) back in August:

"Flathead quarterback Brock Osweiler stiff arms a defender during
the Orange/Black scrimmage at Legends Stadium on Friday night."

Basketball: From the Missoulian.com (http://www.missoulian.com/articles/2007/12/04/sports/sports02.txt), a preview of boys' basketball (bolding is theirs):

CLASS AA BOYS' BASKETBALL PREVIEW: Big men poised for big things in Class AA
By NICK LOCKRIDGE of the Missoulian

Two posts and a host of other athletic players top the Western AA boys' basketball scene this winter.

League favorites Missoula Sentinel and Kalispell Flathead each return a two-time all-state post player and have a trip to last season's state tourney to fall back on.

The Spartans, led by senior Andy Garland and Co., edged the Braves in a preseason poll of league coaches. Flathead is led by junior Brock Osweiler, who's already verbally committed to Gonzaga for hoops in 2009-2010.

Those two big men (Garland is 6-foot-5, Osweiler is 6-8) have their respective teams in position for big things.

The rest of the league figures to be a showdown of athletic teams, all vying for the Western AA title and a bye to the boys' and girls' combined state tourney, March 6-8 at Great Falls' Four Seasons Arena.

The other tourney bids will be decided in three playoffs; no play-in games. Here's a tour of the conference as it shapes up before Tuesday's first tip-off:

Osweiler was second to Garland in scoring last year, but he's widely regarded as one of the state's toughest players. His style matches that of fifth-year Flathead coach Fred Febach, who loves playing physical.

The Braves are buoyed by the return of two perimeter starters, senior guard Jake Thiesen and junior guard Danny Salois.

All-state football player Josh Harris (6-5), Connor Cavigli (6-4) and Coltin Hoffenbacker (6-4) add height to Flathead's frontline.

Probably should add a basketball pic of the young man (not from the linked story), though it's not as pretty as that football dandy:
