BILLINGS — The rosters for the 77th Montana East-West Shrine Game, an annual event featuring the best of the best of Montana's graduating football players from across the state, have been unveiled for next summer's game in Billings.

Two rosters of 40 Montanan players — each of which will also keep the longstanding tradition of one Canadian player — plus alternates will clash June 15, 2024 in The Magic City. A venue has not been announced as of this writing.

Players were nominated by their schools and coaches across the state.

One of America's oldest high school all-star games (having started in 1947), the game is played annually as a fundraiser and to help raise awareness for the orthopedic and burn care unit at the Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Spokane, Washington, where care is provided regardless of a family’s ability to cover costs, according to a press release.

Head coaches have also been chosen for each team: Billings West's Rob Stanton for the East and Florence-Carlton's Pat Duchien for the West.

Stanton, who just completed his ninth season with the Golden Bears, has led West to at least the Class AA quarterfinals in every season of his tenure and coached the program to a state championship in 2018. He's a Baker native who was elected to the Montana Coaching Hall of Fame in 2020.

Duchien, who took over as the coach of the Falcons in 2017, led Florence-Carlton to a Class B three-peat — the first school in the class ever to do so — when the Falcons won their third title in a row this fall.One of his two sons, former Falcons quarterback and current Montana State player Patrick Duchien, played in the Shrine Game in 2023.

The East leads the all-time series 41-35, but the West has won three straight games, including last year's showdown by a 45-13 margin in Butte.
