Three freshmen quarterbacks had a battle for the starting job during the Montana State University-Northern Lights' fall camp last August. All three would be battling it out again right now, had the Lights been able to hold spring ball. And while spring drills and all sports were halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Northern head coach Andrew Rolin said that he was excited to see what his maturing Lights would have done on the field over the next month, including watching his talented quarterbacks progress. For more on the Lights and how they're handling the COVID-19 situation, see next week's Havre Daily News.
Right now, no-one in college football can do anything about taking the next step. Not with spring football officially canceled around the country.
However, football will be back some day, and the next step is exactly what head coach Andrew Rolin says his Montana State University-Northern Lights must do.
Prior to the Frontier Conference canceling spring ball league-wide, which was set to start on March 30 at Northern, Rolin said the next step is the simple message he is instilling in his Lights, and that would have been the driving force behind this year's spring drills.
