Personal: His parents are Jim and Mary Hardy of Fairview. His major is history. Birth date: Jan. 2, 1990. Greg’s dad, Jim, played football and basketball at Western Montana College (UM-Western).

Quoting Coach Pflugrad: “Greg had a very good sophomore campaign. He carried his play from last season into the winter conditioning, and was named our “Player of the Day” in the winter on a couple of occasions. He carried that over in to spring football, and I thought he caught the ball extremely well. He improved his attack at the line of scrimmage and his blocking. He was also flawless in his assignments. It is important to play error-free football, and Greg brings us that, and he has definite leadership qualities.”
