A preview of the Blue Raider quarterbacks
Finding a No. 2 is criticalMarch 26, 2013 · @MTAthletics

Coach Stockstill on position: "We know what we have in starter Logan Kilgore so solidifying a backup and number three will be a focus. Shaun (White) and Austin (Grammer) are inexperienced but talented. This will be a very big spring for both players to see how they develop and learn the offense. Both will get a lot of work in order to bring them along faster."
Kilgore: Coming off his best season as a Blue Raider and ranks in the top five in nearly every career passing statistic ... Has back-to-back 2,000-yard passing seasons ... Coaches want to see him run the football more in 2013 to help the offense. They would like to see 30 to 40 yards a game rushing from the position so the "wildcat" formations will not be as predictable.
White: Has a very strong arm and is athletic ... Getting command of the offense and improving his decision-making will be a focus. Has lots of talent and coaches feel his accuracy will improve when his decision-making quickens.
Grammer: This is his first spring and has enjoyed a solid off-season ... Every day will be a learning experience so he will have to stay patient ... Needs to develop a quicker release which should happen once he feels more comfortable running the offense.
