Two Seeley-Swan Blackhawk players, Bach (BJ) Parker and Lelan Anders, participated in the Eleventh Annual Class B Big Sky All Star Football Game held at Daylis Stadium in Billings, Montana on June 11, 1999.
They checked into Rocky Mountain College on June 7th to begin a week of practice. The boys were part of the South team. Anders played defensive end and Parker played inside linebacker. The North jumped ahead to an early lead, 19-0, but the South fought back and pulled ahead to win 22 to 19. Both Anders and Parker received a lot of play time and were positive impacts in the game.
The Parker and Anders families would like to thank the individuals and businesses that made contributions. Thanks to Mark and Laurie Darrow, Scott Miller, Sarah Wilkins, Michael Vetter, Dennis and Gwen Schneiter, Glen's Automotive Service, Wold's Valley Market, Pop's Restaurant, High Basin Sports, Video Vision, Great Bear Properties, Plum Creek Timber Company, Double Arrow Resort, First Valley Bank, and Pyramid Mountain Lumber.
Bach (BJ) Parker, a 1999 Seeley-Swan High School graduate, was selected to play defensive end for the West Team in the 53rd Annual Montana Shrine Football Game played July 24, 1999 at Memorial Stadium in Great Falls, Montana.
Players checked in to Montana Tech in Butte on July 14. The boys then travelled to Spokane to visit with sick children in the Shrine Hospital, and returned to Butte for a week of practice. Even though the East beat the West 35 to 7, Parker played a solid game and said it was a rewarding experience. The net proceeds from the game were given to the Shriner's Hospitals for Children.
