Flathead’s Michael Lee and Jonathan Baker have signed to play football at Rocky Mountain College next season.

Lee is a 6-foot-4 defensive lineman who earned all-state and first team all-conference recognition as a senior. He also wrestled for the Braves, winning a state champion as a heavyweight earlier this year.

Baker, a 5-foot-10 running back, was a second team all-state pick as a senior and first team-all conference selection. According to Maxpreps.com, Baker rushed for 587 yards and scored five total touchdowns in 2017.

Baker and Lee helped lead the Braves to a 6-4 record last season and the program’s first home playoff game since 2005.
