Park High School is no stranger to Foreign Exchange students, because almost every year, there is one, if not more. Many exchange students come to the US to get a taste of the American Dream, and what better place to do that than Small Town USA: Livingston, Montana. Another key component of that dream is gridiron football, and residents of Livingston get first-hand access to what many have called the best football on earth: small town football.

Those exchange students this year are Magnus Huss, from Denmark, and Kyan Meservey, from France. Huss, who is a junior, has had previous football experience, playing in a youth league in Denmark. “Yes, we actually won the Danish Championship,” said Huss. Meservey, a senior, has played football before, but doesn’t have any flashy national titles. Meservey is a big proponent of the American Dream, so it seemed only natural that he would play the sport that serves as the cornerstone to that same dream. 

Both boys have been proudly accepted onto the football team, on which they both played and won their first game with the team, a 48-14 victory over Missoula Hellgate on August 26, ending a long drought of Park High football victories. After this win, both have high hopes about the rest of the season, including the ecstatic American High School Homecoming Game. “I think we have a great chance in every game we play,” Meservey said about the season forecast. Football Manager William Tyner said of the two imported players, “They bring bodies, and they bring strength, strength we really need.” 

Park High will host their first home game of the season against Browning on September 15, hoping to continue their winning record. “Just you wait,” Huss said, “we will definitely beat Browning,” showing his confidence in the football team’s form. “I’ll be playing my best game,” Meservey stated “and Magnus will be too. We’re definitely beating them.”
