BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — Montana State football player Tanner Roderick has made the team's decision on a starting quarterback a lot easier.
The former Bozeman High and Nevada quarterback asked coach Rob Ash if he could play wide receiver again this fall, figuring it would be best for the team.
Roderick played wide receiver as a sophomore for the Bobcats, catching 12 passes for 146 yards, despite missing five games with an injury. He worked out at quarterback during the spring along with junior Jake Bleskin, sophomore Dakota Brokup and redshirt freshman Quinn McQueary.
Roderick played quarterback in leading Bozeman High to Class AA titles in 2009 and 2010. He redshirted at quarterback and was on the roster for one season at Nevada before transferring to MSU for the 2013 season.
Ash says Roderick is a fabulous athlete and the Bobcats are better with him on the field.
