HELENA - Carroll College football coach Mike Van Diest has announced the signing of three in-state football players.
Helena Capital running back Nick Retz has signed with the Saints along with Helena High defensive back and punt returner Sean Donahue and Malta lineman Trevor Simser.
Retz earned first team all-state honors this fall in helping Capital to its third straight state Class AA football title. Retz was also named the MVP of the Helena Senators baseball team, where he batted .403.
Donahue earned first team all-state honors as a safety and second team all-conference as a punt returner for Helena High.
Simser has twice earned first team all-state honors.
All three signees have been selected to play in the East-West Shrine all-star football game this summer.
