Griz open up fall football camp 8-5-14

MISSOULA, Mont. - Fall camp officially arrived for the Montana Grizzly football team on Tuesday morning at the River Bowl practice fields on the UM Campus.  It was a long off-season after a loss to Coastal Carolina in last year's FCS playoffs, but now the team is just excited and ready to get back to work.

"We weren't happy with that end result and how we ended the season," said Griz senior running back Jordan Canada. "We've got to try and put that in the past and work on the future, move towards our goal of getting to the national championship. Just get back into the swing of things you know, get the offense back in our minds get used to hearing plays everything like that and just have fun."

"It's just exciting to get underway and finally get out on the field," said Griz senior starting quarterback Jordan Johnson. "We've been talking about it since winter time and to finally get out and practice and know that there's a game in the near future, it's exciting."

"I'm sure that the excitement and the enthusiasm today is going to be sky-high," said Montana head football coach Mick Delaney prior to Tuesday's practice. "It will be our job then to try and keep it there a week from today when they're dragging a little bit. Obviously finishing the job for us is going to be get to the national championship and you know there's a long road to get there but I certainly am not afraid to talk about those goals because I think that's what's expected of the University of Montana."

The Grizzlies will be hard at work the rest of this month as they're now less than four weeks away from their season opener at Wyoming.
