In his home state of Montana, former Stanford men’s basketball player Josh Huestis is regarded as a sort of legend. Like so many other students in the state, sports — specifically basketball — caught Huestis’s attention at an early age. He began his high school career at C.M. Russell High School in Great Falls — a Montana city of 58,000 located near the center of the state. He wasted no time in establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with on the basketball court and varsity lettered in the sport as a freshman, playing small forward and power forward. The feat was especially impressive, given his high school competes in what was arguably Montana’s most competitive division, featuring only the handful of high schools across the state with greater than 1,000 students.
