Minnesota State Moorhead head coach Steve Laqua said he won’t pull the redshirt on freshman quarterback Myles Montplaisir, who had been the team’s No. 2 QB all season, but hasn’t seen any playing time.
The Dragons have three games to play this season, including Saturday’s home game against the University of Mary at Alex Nemzek Stadium. At this point of the season, Laqua doesn’t want to burn Montplaisir’s redshirt, even if there is an injury to the starter.
Senior Bryson Pluta, who had played QB earlier in his MSUM career, will be the backup for the Dragons in case senior starter Kevin Koch gets injured.
“Myles, we moved him to scout team this week,” Laqua said. “With Kevin being healthy coming out of last week and healthy going into this week, Pluta is a guy we have gotten ready this week.”
