Griz have six first team picks & 19 players recognized
Montana's seniors recognized prior to the game
Montana: Stephen will start for the second season in a row, but this season it will be at center, not guard.
2010: He started in nine games at offensive left guard and missed the two contests (Weber State and North Dakota) because of an injury. He joined the Grizzlies in the winter of 2010.
Junior College: He was a two-year starter at Scottsdale Community College. He was named all-state in 2009 following his sophomore season at Scottsdale CC. He was an all-conference selection as a freshman and sophomore. He was a teammate of Griz senior offensive lineman Jake Hendrickson in junior college. His JC coach was Doug Madoski.
High School: He prepped at Basha High School in Showlow, Arizona. He was a first team all-state selection as a senior and three-year letterman in football. He was a two-time all-conference pick in football. He was also a three-time letterman in track and earned one letter in basketball. He was a first team all-region pick in football as a junior and senior.
Personal: His majoring is communication studies. His parents are Charles and Anj Sliskovic of Chandler. Birth date: September 4, 1990.
Quoting Coach Pflugrad: "He is what we call the `dirt dog" if you will. He likes getting dirty. I think he was the type of kid who used to jump in the mud puddle and run in the house and say `mom look how dirty I am.' When other guys are trying to walk around it, he's right in the middle of that mud puddle. I think he will bring our offense into that mud puddle, sort of speak, and get them all on the same page.
"He is a blue collar, hard-working guy, and that's kind of how he was raised. I am very happy he is here. He's a good person, and again has really enjoyed his experience here at Montana."
