SBLive surveyed the Montana high school ‘C’ football landscape, and compiled a comprehensive look at the state entering the 2021 fall season.

Here are the preseason ‘C’ Top 5 rankings:

1. Flint Creek (Drummond-Philipsburg)

2020 record: 12-0

Titans have posted three undefeated state-championship runs in past four seasons, including last fall.

2. Scobey-Opheim

2020 record: 10-2

Spartans want to take it one step further this fall after losing in the state finals to Flint Creek (44-8).

3. Fort Benton

2020 record: 8-1

Longhorns were rudely eliminated in state semifinals, and must find replacement for QB Billy Ullery.

4. Park City

2020 record: 6-2

Intriguing team with offensive firepower, led by returning QB Jake Gauthier; lost in 2020 quarterfinals.

5. Shelby

2020 record: 6-2

Coyotes only dropped to 8-man level in 2018, and were in the state semifinals a year ago.
