MISSOULA – With the Montana Grizzlies football team bringing coach Bobby Hauck back,  there were a lot of changes in the off season and still a lot of unanswered questions as far as scheming and the starting roster. One of the highly contested roster spots is at quarterback.

Redshirt sophomore Gresch Jensen played 10 games in 2017 for the Griz when Reese Phillips went down with a season-ending injury after he had tallied six touchdowns. Dalton Sneed is a transfer from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, where he started six games as a freshman in 2016.

Both quarterbacks know the competition is tight, but are just focusing on what they can do best.

“Between me, Gresch and Tanner (Wilson), our friendship and everything is great off the field, and once we get on the field we compete with each other. You know, push each other. If someone makes a great play, you tell him he made a great play. You know it’s your friend, but you’re competing day in and day out,” said Sneed. ”

“I just mostly focus on myself, just doing the best I can do. At the end of the day, I can just do the best I can do and live with the result. I understand how things work and I’m just chipping away at it,” said Jensen.

The Montana Grizzlies host their annual spring game on Saturday, April 14 at Washington-Grizzly Stadium. It’s scheduled to begin at 1 p.m.
