SPRING OUTLOOK

With 19 returning starters and 46 lettermen back, expectations for the 2003 University of Montana football team are once again “Big Sky-high.”

Spring drills for the Griz begin this Thursday and conclude with a spring game on Saturday, April 26 in Polson, Montana.

First-year Montana head coach Bobby Hauck said some of his primary goals heading into 2003 spring drills is to improve, to establish depth and identify starters, including the quarterback position, as well as to get better in the secondary.

“I think we accomplished our initial goals, which was to sign a good recruiting class and to get organized for the upcoming months,” Hauck said.

“I think our initial goals in spring football are to get better as a team, to improve our depth and get our younger guys to be better football players,” Hauck said. “We have several positions where we need to develop both the starter and some depth, and quarterback is one of those. It will be fun to see who departs spring drills as the number one quarterback. Another position would be at running back. We need to develop depth there and also find out who our starter is going to be.

“And last, but certainly not least, are the secondary positions where we need to improve,” Hauck said. “We are not established there by any means. We are very inexperienced in the secondary. To play in the Big Sky Conference, and to compete against the teams we’ll see outside the conference, we’ll need to improve drastically in our secondary. The punter position is also up in the air.”

Montana is coming off an 11-3 season, a 5-2 Big Sky record (three-way tie for first), and advancing to the quarter-finals of the Division I-AA playoffs. UM has been the Big Sky champion or shared the title five years in a row and eight of the past 10 seasons.

The Griz tied the record for consecutive appearances in the I-AA playoffs in 2002. It was their 10th straight which ties them with Eastern Kentucky (1986-95). Montana defeated visiting Northwestern State 45-14 in a first-round game last season and lost 24-20 at McNeese State in a quarter-final contest.

UM’s 19 returning starters include 10 on offense, eight on defense, and a place-kicker. The Griz return 12 starters who received All-Big Sky Conference recognition in 2002.

Two key players Montana needs to replace are free safety Trey Young and quarterback John Edwards, who graduated. Young was a three-year starter and the Big Sky’s defensive MVP last season. Edwards, the league co-MVP on offense (with Eastern Washington senior quarterback Josh Blankenship), finished his career as the school’s fifth leading passer with 6,704 yards and was 27-4 as a starter.

Both Edwards and Young were finalists for I-AA’s player of the year awards: the Walter Payton Award on offense and the Buch Buchanan Award on defense, respectively.

The Griz also must find replacements for starting cornerback Johnnie Peeples and punter Mark Spencer, who also graduated.

Not surprisingly, Montana started the 2002 campaign ranked first in the nation and stayed there for 11 weeks. UM was coming off the 2001 I-AA national championship, a 13-6 win over Furman, and returned 17 starters from that squad.

In 2002, the Griz reeled off 10 consecutive victories (10-0 overall and 5-0 in the conference) and tied the I-AA record for most wins in a row with 24. UM’s win skein was stopped with a 30-21 loss at Eastern Washington.

What is surprising about Montana’s 2002 season is the fact that the team returned no running backs or receivers that had scored a touchdown at UM. They were also slowed by numerous injuries to several key players throughout the year.

Junior All-American defensive end Ciche Pitcher played in just three games and was forced to sit out the season with a shoulder injury.

Returning first team all-league defensive tackle Jonny Varona missed the entire season, also with a shoulder injury.

Center Brian Pelc, a three-year starter, had his career end early when he suffered a knee injury at Weber State on October 12.

Redshirt freshman running backs David Gober and JR Waller both suffered injuries, and senior Jelani Harrison was lost in the Portland State game (Oct. 26) with a broken leg.

The Griz lost their leading receiver, freshman standout Jon Talmage, to an elbow injury in the Northern Arizona game, but he returned in time for the playoffs.

Coach Hauck said that Pitcher, junior defensive back Kyle Scholle, senior cornerback Vernon Smith, and Varona would all be kept out of spring drills so that they can fully recover from injuries.

OFFENSE

QUARTERBACK

Redshirt Jeff Disney (6-1, 198) from Chaffey Junior College and Colorado transfer Craig Ochs (6-2, 205), both juniors, will vie for the starting job. Freshman Justin Hartman (6-1, 190) is a much-heralded freshman from Great Falls (C.M. Russell High School) at UM.

“I haven’t had a chance to see any of them play up to this point, except on video,” Hauck said. “I think they’re all very talented guys who bring a lot of athletic ability to the table. Craig Ochs and Jeff Disney have really live arms and leadership skills. They are athletic, and I think that they will be exciting players to watch. We have some multi-talented quarterbacks, and all three of them can beat you with their arm or with their feet.”

RUNNING BACK

JR Waller (5-9, 197) started several games, and his 826 yards last season ranked him 10th in single-season history at UM. Fellow redshirt freshman David Gober (5-9, 190) rushed for 480 yards, but will miss spring drills to concentrate on academics. Turill Engleman (5-10, 190) is a promising redshirt. Junior Pete Hamill (5-11, 190) is a returning letterman.

“JR comes into spring ball with the most experience, and he will work with the first group the first day,” Hauck said. “Turill Engleman has looked good in our off-season workouts, and when Justin Green gets here this summer he’ll add to the great competition in the fall. Running back is an important position to develop depth.”

(NOTE: Junior Justin Green, a transfer from Mesa CC, should vie for the starting job this fall. Green rushed for 874 yards last season).

OFFENSIVE LINE

All five starters return here, including three seniors. Those three seniors, tackles Dylan McFarland (6-6, 290) and Jon Skinner (6-6, 310) and guard Derek Decker (6-5, 295) will all be starting for their third season in a row.

McFarland was named to several All-American teams, while Skinner was second team all-league. Decker was honorable mention All-league, as was junior guard Cory Procter (6-5, 295). Junior Garth Enger (6-4, 285) started and played admirably the last eight games of the season at center.

“This is a strength of our football team,” Hauck said. “It’s a great group. They play well together and get along great together. We’re going to establish a top eight coming out of spring ball, and there will be some good competition to see who gets in that group. We may shuffle some positions around, but we’re not sure yet.

“Cory Procter has looked great in the off-season,” Hauck said. “Skinner, McFarland and Decker have led the charge also, and being seniors, that’s what you’d expect out of them. I fully expect that group to be a strength on our team.”

Other players who figure into the mix could be junior tackles Dylan Brown (6-4, 290) and Beau Hart (6-6, 265), and sophomores Brad Rhoades (6-5, 265) and Jake Pipinich (6-5, 290). Promising redshirt freshman Jeff Marshall (6-5, 250) and Ryan Wells (6-4, 270) will also vie for playing time.

TIGHT END

UM has its top five players back at this position, including junior starter Conor Molloy (6-5, 250), who had 14 catches for 180 yards last season.

Other returnees are senior Brad Weston (6-1, 225), junior Willie Walden (6-7, 275), and sophomores Ja ‘Ton Simpson (6-5, 230) and Ben Winn (6-4, 225).

“This group has the potential to be some of our better players,” Hauck said. “You want to have your 11 best players on the field, and these players have a chance to make a difference for us, both catching the ball and as key blockers in our running game.

WIDE RECEIVER

What a difference a year makes. Last season Montana had no receiver who had scored a collegiate touchdown. This year the Griz return seven of their top eight receivers, with the only loss being the graduated Rory Zikmund, who had 37 catches for 360 yards and two scores.

UM’s three leading receivers who return are Segars (51-628/2 TDs), a junior; Talmage (50–659/5); and junior Tate Hancock (37-593/6). They are followed by Waller (22-205/3), senior Dane Oliver (15-329/1), junior Tyler Peterson (15-171/1), and Molloy (14-180/1).

“This group has the most depth on our team,” Hauck said. “We are excited about all our returnees, and we have a couple of young guys who can help out too. Each of those guys bring something different to the table.”

DEFENSE

DEFENSIVE END

First team All-Big Sky selection Tim Bush (6-3, 245) is back for his senior season, while 2001 first team all-leaguer Pitcher (6-3, 230) is back after red-shirting last year due to injury.

Last year Lance Spencer (6-4, 230) earned a starting role after Pitcher’s injury, and the redshirt freshman responded with 10 sacks and was an honorable mention all-league pick. Bush was a first team all-league pick last year and led the Big Sky in sacks with 13. Pitcher, who will miss spring drills, was among the league-leaders in sacks in 2001 with 11.

Bush was Montana’s fifth leading tackler last year with 67 stops, and he had a team-leading 19 tackles for losses. Spencer was UM’s eighth leading tackler with 54 stops.

Senior Chris Connors (6-2, 232) adds depth. Hauck said he expected redshirt freshman Mike Potts (6-4, 225) to compete for playing time at end as well.

DEFENSIVE TACKLE

Junior Blake Horgan (6-3, 275) took over for the injured Varona last season, and the result was that Horgan earned first team all-league honors.

Horgan was UM’s top (tie) tackler in 2002 with 95 stops, including nine tackles for losses. Fellow junior John Cahill (6-2, 270) was also exceptional with 60 tackles last year. Alan Saenz, a 6-2, 285-pound sophomore, adds quality depth at tackle or end. Sophomore Chris Orwig (6-5, 260) is a solid player, and a couple of redshirt freshmen could contribute as well.

“I am excited about our defensive front,” Hauck said. “They’re a lot like our offensive front, and I expect them to be the core of our defense and a real strength. Like the offensive line, we’ve got good depth at those positions, and they really look like they can play. I’ve watched a lot of video tape, and I am very impressed with them, both on tape, and in the winter workouts.”

LINEBACKER

Two starters are back, led by honorable mention All-Big Sky pick Joel Robinson (5-11, 230), who returns at one spot, and junior Adam Hoge (5-11, 215) at the other. “I am expecting both Joel and Adam to step up their game and hold off the young guys,” Hauck said.

Robinson was UM’s fourth-leading tackler a year ago with 75 stops, and an honorable mention all-league choice. Hoge was Montana’s No. Outlook Add 3-3-3 (LB Con.) 6 tackler with 65.

Senior Andy Thompson (6-3, 220) also has started several games the past two seasons, and junior Nick Vella (6-2, 204) overcame injuries and contributed last year.

Sophomores Kyler Noel (6-1, 214) and Shane MacIntyre (6-3, 222) will also see action. Senior defensive back Brent Meyers, UM’s Special Teams Player of the Year in 2002, has been moved to linebacker. He had 24 tackles last season. Much-heralded redshirt freshman Dustin Dlouhy (6-2, 217) will be hard to keep out of the line-up.

SECONDARY

“I think our entire secondary is a question mark,” Hauck said. “I don’t think that we are, with the exception of Vernon (Smith), ready to go at this point, although Vernon will miss spring drills because of off-season surgery. We expect him to be back and ready to go.

“Our secondary is an area in which we need to make the most strides at those positions as any on our team,” Hauck continued. “It is imperative that we improve there in the month of April.”

Smith, a first team all-leaguer in 2002, is the incumbent at one corner spot. Redshirt freshman Michael Rubie (5-11, 180) is expected to try for a starting role at corner.

Senior strong safety Dave DeCoite’s (6-1, 196) 95 tackles last season makes him UM’s top-leading returning tackler (along with Horgan).

DeCoite was a second team all-conference pick last year.

At safety, sophomore Kevin Edwards (6-2, 195) and Tyler Thomas (6-0, 190), will vie for time. Junior safety Kyle Scholle (6-0, 195) will miss spring drills due to injury. Sophomore Kendall Selle (6-2, 205) was moved from quarterback to safety.

Redshirt freshmen Nathan Adkins (5-8, 170) and Tuff Harris (6-0, 185) were moved from wide receiver to cornerback to utilize their speed and shore up that position.

“Watching our players in the off-season, I think Nate Adkins, Tuff Harris, and Mike Rubie have shown that they have a chance to make a run at it (a starting berth) in the spring,” Hauck said. “As a bi-product of Vern not being there and lack of depth at that position, they’re going to get a lot of turns this spring and a chance to show us what they’ve got.”

Hauck said that two or three of UM’s 2003 recruiting class may be pressed into action in the secondary as “true” freshmen.

KICKER/PUNTER/RETURNERS

Two-time first team All-Big Sky kicker Chris Snyder (6-0, 204) is back for his senior season. Snyder made 19-of-32 field goals last season and made 50-of-50 PATs. He has made 92 PATs in a row and 96 of his last 97.

The Griz need to find a replacement for senior punter Mark Spencer.

Segars and Heidelberger ranked among the league’s top return men last season.
