BUTTE — With Montana Tech’s spring football game on Saturday at 1 p.m. fans will be able to see parts of the Orediggers’ new offensive playbook get used in a game-like situation.
First-year offensive coordinator Kyle Samson has thrown an array of different offensive schemes, formations, and plays into the Orediggers’ playbook. Despite the multitude of new stuff being thrown at the offense, the transition into Samson’s system seems to be going well.
Some players are even surprised at how easy the transition has been. Among the many that feel that way is quarterback Jet Campbell, who credits the smooth transition to the offseason and off-the-field work the team has been putting in.
“We’ve actually all taken it up pretty smoothly, really. We’re in the gym during winter ball for a while, you know, getting the script down, doing a lot of extra things to get used to the terminology and whatever else comes with offense,” said Campbell. “But yeah, it’s translated to the field pretty well, and we’re all learning it together so it’s not like one person’s got more of a job than others. It’s coming together pretty well and it’s exciting to see, for sure.”
