MISSOULA – On Wednesday, three days before the season opener, the Montana Grizzlies released their first depth chart.

New coach Bobby Hauck previously would not announce any starters, preferring an open competition at every position during fall Camp. The head coach also admitted the starting lineup wasn’t that important, because he planned to play many players in the opener.

There aren’t many surprises on the list, though. As expected, junior transfer Dalton Sneed will take the first snaps at quarterback. But the Grizzlies will start four freshmen: running back Adam Eastwood, right tackle Colton Keintz, defensive end RJ Nelson and safety Robby Hauck (Bobby’s son). Eastwood is listed ahead of last year’s backup in the backfield, Alijah Lee. The returning starter from last year, Jeremy Calhoun, is not on the two-deep.
