MISSOULA – Former University of Montana Grizzly quarterback and current Canadian Football League head coach Dave Dickenson is headed to the College Football Hall of Fame and to honor that moment some new apparel is being offered up for sale.

Dickenson won a national championship with the Griz in 1995 and also won the Walter Payton Award as the top player in Division 1-AA football.

The new Dickenson apparel will include sweatshirts, t-shirts and hats all featuring the retired number 15. Shop owners say the new gear brings out different emotions in people and that they are excited to be selling it.

"We love it l, one of my favorite things about the Dave Dickenson apparel is watching people come into the store.  Because what will happen is one of two things," one shop owner told MTN News. "One they will see it and go yes the old colors are back or they will be like what is this and then you get to have that conversation."

The apparel will only be available for a limited amount of time and is available at the M Store along with the bookstore, Universal Athletics and Bob Wards
