Andersen “fine-tuning” his linebacker skills this spring


BOZEMAN — At the end of a 75-play scrimmage on a day that started snowy and ended blanketed in sunshine, the Bobcats lined up on the sideline to finish the session with wind sprints.

The sophomore phenom from Dillon didn’t appear to labor whatsoever while he won four different sideline-to-sideline sprints by at least half a dozen strides each during yet another uncanny display of his supreme athleticism.

The legend of the reigning Big Sky Freshman of the Year continues to grow.
