Challengers News · Former Challenger Olson Wins Buchanan Award

UPDATE: Cascade Christian graduate Dante Olson has won the Buck Buchanan Award for the best defensive player in the FCS.

Attached is the link to an article at the University of Montana’s athletics website, detailing the linebacker’s accomplishments. According to one website that tracks NFL draft prospects, the 6’3 240 Olson projects as a possible third-round pick in the April draft.

More importantly, the son of Jeff and Linda Olson has used his platform to reach out to at-risk kids, and those who have been affected by bullying, something Olson knows about from early childhood. Olson is also not bashful about sharing his faith in Christ.
