Will Dissly ended his senior year with the Washington Huskies with a bang. 

The Bozeman High grad had a career day against the University of Montana earlier this season, grabbing five catches for 79 yards and two touchdowns, his only two scores on the season. That game along with Dissly's blocking ability helped net the senior second-team All Pac-12 as a tight end in the conference's end-of-the-year awards.

On Wednesday, Dissly grabbed the biggest reward of them all.

Dissly tweeted a photo that he had been invited to the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, saying "A Montana kid is heading to the combine this year! #MTpride," along with a photo of his invitation. 

The Combine will be held Feb. 27 through March 5 this year at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. 

Dissly began his first two years with the Huskies as a defensive lineman before transitioning to tight end as a junior. In Washington's 35-28 loss to Penn State in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl, Dissly had two catches for 59 yards including a 52-yard gain on a trick play that help set up Washington's first score of the game.
