Former Montana State football standout shot and killed in Oakland, California

Former Montana State football star DeAndre Green was shot and killed in Oakland, California.

A Contra Costa College assistant football coach and former Montana State wide receiver was shot and killed yesterday in Oakland, California.

Green was a graduate of DeAnza High School in Richmond, and later attended (and played football for) Montana State University in Bozeman, MT.

DeAndre Green, 34, an assistant football coach was mourned by the Contra Costa football team.

“We lost a Contra Costa family member and our hearts break!” according to a tweet Saturday afternoon from the CCC football team. “Coach Green was a young coach that’s made an impact on his community with all the phenomenal work he’s done. We love and appreciate you, Dre!”

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound Green caught 62 passes for 782 yards as a freshman at Contra Costa in San Pablo, Calif. He was voted team MVP and was a unanimous all-league selection. Green caught 105 passes for more than 1,200 yards in two seasons at Contra Costa Community College, before signing to Montana State.
