Bobcats hope Sterk can help cure pass rush drought


BOZEMAN — As Ty Gregorak reviewed the film from Montana State’s first spring scrimmage, MSU’s defensive coordinator saw something you don’t often see.

Bryce Sterk tracked down Chris Murray from behind.

“Chris is one of the best athletes in the league and one of the fastest athletes in the league and it was a great effort play, but the kid really can move,” Gregorak said with a chuckle when Sterk’s name first came up during an interview last week. “For a 6-foot-5, 260-pound dude, he can really boogie.”

If the defensive end transfer from Washington can boogie his way around quarterbacks and give the Bobcats a real threat as a pass rusher, the Washington transfer will likely have Gregorak and third-year head coach Jeff Choate dancing with glee.
