BOZEMAN — Montana State’s annual Sonny Holland Spring Game is on Saturday in Bobcat Stadium. While most people are just happy to have a little dose of April football, the Bobcats are taking spring practice seriously, especially offensive coordinator Matt Miller.

His main goal for the spring is getting his offense back to the basics and growing from there.

“Our spring ball goal is just to identify some of our playmakers. We have the older guys we want to get the ball to and the young guys who want to emerge and get in two-deep,” he said.

“We want to stay healthy with those old guys. That’s a big part with this weather, is making sure the surface is right, the weather is conducive, going out and getting a good exchange,” he remarked, referring to the record cold in March. “Obviously just getting some of our DNA schemes and fundamentals down.”

“I realize what spring ball is for us is locking into those fundamentals — how can we apply those in drill work, crossover work, and team work to make us a better football team,” Miller finished.
