Receivers Article - Speltz

"Johnson has said from the beginning of August workouts that he loves the speed of this year’s wide receivers. Two weeks later he has noticed another significant strength."

“They’re just playmakers,” the junior said. “Sometimes you put the ball up and you know it’s either going to be them or nobody because they’re going to go up and make a play. That’s a nice thing to have.”

"The Griz return battle-tested sophomore speedster Ellis Henderson, who has dazzled on deep routes in practice and is expected to start along with steady Warren and speedy sophomore Taylor Walcott."

"Montana’s depth of talent at wideout has been perhaps most impressive in August. University of Washington transfer Jamaal Jones should to make an instant impact. Junior Sean Haynes and sophomore Chase Naccarato will also make their presence felt."

"Other wide receivers who may make their mark early are senior Kevin Berland, redshirt freshman Ryan Burke and true freshman Marq Rogers .."

"One experienced wideout who will not be ready for Appalachian State a week from Saturday is junior Mitch Saylor. Delaney says he’s ahead of schedule coming off surgery but probably won’t be available until at least mid-September."

“They took and grafted some ligaments and tendons out of that (calf) part of the (right) leg for the ankle and the foot,” Delaney noted. “The calf is kind of bothering him but it’s still the surgery part of it. He’s getting better every day.”

Speltz has been doing a nice job covering Griz football during preseason, minus some of the occasional little (rookie) mistakes. The articles are informative.
