Prukop to open season as Montana State QB

Bozeman, MT (SportsNetwork.com) - Redshirt sophomore Dakota Prukop has been named Montana State's starting quarterback for their season opener at Arkansas State on Aug. 30.

Prukop beat out junior Jake Bleskin and redshirt freshman Quinn McQueary for the top job during preseason camp.

Head coach Rob Ash called picking a starter from the competition "very, very, very tough.

"We have great choices," he added, "it was a tremendous battle, all the guys performed superbly, and I thought Saturday (intrasquad scrimmage) was a tour de force. It was a beautiful performance by three competitors who were all fighting in their last audition to prove what they can bring to the table. They all three were outstanding. I'm very excited about this position for our football team."

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Prukop, from Austin, Texas, did not compile any statistics in his lone outing against North Dakota last season.

"What (Prukop) did well in camp was manage the offense," Ash said. "He's in the right place, his eyes are in the right place, his reads are to the right place, he gets guys lined up. There were no issues with that in spite of his youth and lack of experience. Dakota has really made great gains in this area since the spring."
