DILLON — This Saturday will be the first inter-squad scrimmage for the Montana Western Bulldogs football team. Among the many storylines developing during spring ball one of the biggest is the quarterback battle.
Sophomore Jon Jund appears to be the frontrunner to be the starter once the season kicks off this fall. The Spring Creek, Nevada native started all 10 games in 2018 and completed 186 of his 352 pass attempts for 2,510 yards and 14 touchdowns. Jund also rushed for eight scores on the year.
But with talented QBs like Sean Miller, Peyton Broenneke and John Perrigot competing every day, the door is still open for any one of those guys to step in and be the playmaker for the Bulldog offense.
“Obviously Jon had a nice freshman season, and that gives him that jump and experience over other guys,” said Western head coach Ryan Nourse. “But Jon also knows that in our program, you’re one play away, one decision away from someone taking your job.”
“I just got to work hard and just keep doing what I do, and I should be able to keep the job,” Jund said, “but I got to go out there and compete every day.”
