Aug. 31, 2012

Senior linebacker Josh Stuberg starts this season as a main leadership force. He joins fellow senior Josh Harris as the two defensive players with the most seniority. Last year, Stuberg played in every game and made at least one tackle per game. When the 2011 season ended, the Helena native was the Grizzlies' fifth leading returning tackler. He showed a strong performance in both spring training and fall camp. This season, he is expected to be a dominant presence on defense.

What is like for you to be one of the only two seniors on defense?

It's definitely different. It just shows we have a young team. A lot of the the juniors are really stepping up into the role of leadership. Josh Harris and I are both kind of quiet guys, but we like to show our leadership through actions. We lost a lot of big time players and we are just looking for new faces to step up.

What are you looking forward to as you start the season?

What I am really looking forward to is how the whole team is coming together through this fall camp and last spring. I am really excited for all of us to mold together and play as a team on the field on Saturday.

What do you think will be the strengths of the Griz this year?

I think one of our strengths is the heart that we play with and the passion that we bring when we come onto the field.

What is your favorite moment of your college football career?

The most memorable moment is when we beat the Cats last year. They were number one in the country, and it was just a really exciting moment.

What are your plans after college?

Hopefully start a career somewhere. I am a major in accounting and information systems. So it looks like the corporate world will be where I am headed. So we will see how that goes.
