Montana: Antwon will start at wide receiver for the second year in a row. He is the Grizzlies second leading returning receiver.
2010: He started in all 11 games. He had team-highs of 600 receiving yards for a 16.7-yard average, and six touchdown catches, and was third on the squad with 36 receptions. He was an honorable mention All-Big Sky Conference selection.
UCLA: He was activated as a true freshman at UCLA two seasons ago when he played in 10 games...a two-year letterman for the Bruins.
High School: He was a PrepStar All-American two-way player at Culver City High School (Calif.)...senior season he had a team record 1,448 receiving yards for 13 touchdowns on offense, had 66 tackles and three interceptions on defense.
Career Highs: He had 7 receptions against Northern Arizona last season. He had 100 yards receiving and a career-long 58-yarder for a TD versus North Dakota. He had one scoring grab in six different games. He had a career-long run of 14 yards at Northern Colorado.
Personal: His major is sociology. Birth date: December 20, 1989. His parents are Herb and Melodi Moutra of Carson.
Quoting Coach Pflugrad: "Antwon led us in receiving yards and touchdown catches, and he joined our program late. I was extremely impressed that he picked up our offensive system so fast. Not only was he our team leader in a couple of passing game statistics, but he also blocked very well.
"Again, coming from a school like UCLA where the offense was totally different than what we are attempting to do, I really take my hat off to him. He is a very good person in our program. He just really enjoys being at The University of Montana and in the state of Montana."
