Fynn Ridgeway, a four-year starter at quarterback for the Whitefish Bulldogs, announced via Twitter Saturday that he has committed to Minnesota State-Moorhead for football.
The 6-foot, 200-pound quarterback tweeted: “Committed. Let’s get to work,” with a picture of a red-jerseyed Dragons player.
The MSU-M Dragons play in the NCAA Division II Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference, and are coming off a 4-7 season. A freshman started at QB last fall for the Dragons, and split the snaps with a sophomore.
Ridgeway passed for 6,010 yards and 51 touchdowns in four seasons at Whitefish, helping the Bulldogs go 24-14 and into the Class A playoffs three times.
His rushing numbers increased each year, and he was one of the state’s top rushers with 1,308 yards last fall. He finished with 1,855 career rushing yards and 24 touchdowns. Eighteen of those TDs came in 2022.
