Troy Andersen: Montana Roots | A hometown hero from Dillon, Montana

Atlanta Falcons 2022 second-round pick Troy Andersen may be a new age linebacker but he has an old school story, and for that reason he has an entire state behind him. Growing up on his family cattle ranch in rural Montana, Troy Andersen has always had a work ethic that has translated well in sports.

From being a thriving three-sport athlete in high school, to a multi-position player on both sides of the ball at Montana State University, Troy has worked hard to get the life-changing phone call from the Falcons. After his rookie season in the NFL and all the lessons that came with it, Troy Andersen now looks ahead to year two while his hometown and the state Montana continues to root for him.
