Favoroso’s improvement a boost for Griz
For the first month of the season, Montana defensive coordinator Jason Semore likened Chris Favoroso acclimation into Montana’s defensive line to taking a difficult math test.
Favoroso lost his early-season starting gig the week before Montana’s conference opener versus Eastern Washington.
But since breaking back into the starting lineup three weeks later, he’s become a menace – logging four sacks in four weeks, including two in last Saturday’s pivotal 17-15 win over No. 9 Northern Arizona.
His sack total (5) is now tied for sixth in the Big Sky, while his 9.5 tackles for loss (9.5) is tied for ninth.
“When he got here, he was like a freshman in high school in terms of his technique and stuff,” Semore said. “His technique was terrible. His football knowledge was bad. The game was moving really slow for him. Now he knows what it’s like to play Division I football. He’s out there competing his butt off every week now.”
