Yaak, Montana

Know of a great athlete from Yaak, Montana? It would be a dirty shame if we didn't have one.

BOZEMAN — In our six-week Montana Greats project, we've showcased top athletes from more than 245 Montana communities.

We have representatives from every town that has -- or had -- a high school.

Yet many of the smallest specks on the Montana highway map remain devoid of a Great. 

We could use your help in filling in those blanks.

Below is a list of communities still in search of a Montana Great, in alphabetical order (we hadn't heard of many of them either).

To prioritize, they've been divided into Tier I and Tier II, with Tier I being a more likely or a more significant candidate for a Great. Those are the communities we're emphasizing.

Some of these map dots in Tier II are just that -- representing little more than a saloon (Jimtown), cement plant (Trident), mine (Sarpy/Decker), ghost town (Nevada City) or battlefield (Benteen). But, you never know...

If you have a suggestion for one of the communities below, email me at jeff.welsch@406mtsports.com.
