Each hailing from Sidney High School in Sidney, Mont., Alec Lovegren, Max Peters and Jace Johnson signed to continue their football careers at Dickinson State University head coach Pete Stanton announced via press release on Tuesday.

Lovegren, a two-time Class A all-state running back, piled up nearly 3,000 rushing yards and 40 touchdowns during his time with the Eagles. He was also a stout linebacker, leading the team in tackles during his sophomore, junior and senior seasons. Lovegren, a sprinter for the track & field team, helped guide the Eagles to a state title in 2017.

A defensive line all-state selection in 2016, Peters registered 81 tackles his junior and senior seasons. He played split time as an offensive lineman as well, creating some of the hole Lovegren would run through.

As the quarterback of an Eagles team advancing to the state semifinals, Johnson was an all-state selection for his effort last season. The signal caller amassed more than 1,200 through the air and on the ground, collecting 10 touchdowns. He also served as the team’s place kicker, converting on 38 of 41 extra points in 2017. During his prep career, he nailed on 8-for-10 on field goal attempts, including a career long from 42 yards out.

Johnson’s brother, Cody, is a kicker for the Blue Hawks.
