How Clark County college football players fared: Racanelli returns for Montana

Lincoln Victor has career-high 168 yards receiving in WSU win

By , Columbian Sports Editor

It has been a long road back to the football field for Sawyer Racanelli.

After transferring to Montana from Washington, the receiver from Hockinson missed all of last season after suffering a knee injury during spring practice.

Saturday saw a healthy Racanelli start at wide receiver in a 35-20 win over Butler. The redshirt junior had one catch for 25 yards.

Racanelli led Hockinson to back-to-back Class 2A state championships in 2017-18. He signed with Washington after being listed as the state’s No. 8 recruit by ESPN.

He played two games as a true freshman then appeared in 11 of 12 games in 2021, mostly on special teams.

Racanelli entered the transfer portal after the 2021 season. He’s expected to play a significant role in Montana’s receiving corps this season.

Here’s how other collegiate football players from Clark County fared. Note: A blank entry means the player’s team had a bye week.
