BOULDER — Before the sports world shutdown, Steven Montez and other pro hopefuls on the Colorado Buffaloes football team gathered for their pro day. Montez, who we caught up with at the Senior Bowl, has been working with the quarterback guru of our times in Jordan Palmer, who is also training presumptive top pick Joe Burrow, has trained Josh Allen, Sam Darnold…...
As he prepares for the NFL, Steven Montez wants to remake his game from the feet up. To do so, he has the help of an expert.

There was a lot going on around Colorado Buffaloes athletics this week, but the biggest story is the first Pac-12 title of the school year.
BOULDER — Darrin Chiaverini waited four years for his gold number.
During his senior season at the University of Colorado, the wide receiver bought a copy of NCAA Gamebreaker 99, slid the disk into his PlayStation, started his first game with the Buffs and saw a little golden "#6" under the wide receiver made in his likeness.
"If you were a college football player and you had the gold number, that meant you were a good player," Chiaverini, who is currently Colorado's assistant head coach and wide receivers coach, said Tuesday.
The yearly tradition of college football players buying the game on release day to check out their ratings began with the EA Sports' Bill Walsh College Football series in 1993. The game wasn't officially licensed by most schools, so instead of the names of colleges, it used the cities they reside in.
Instead of the names of players, it just put the right numbers in the right positions.
In football, there’s a big difference between 41 points and 10 points.
There’s an even bigger difference between 45 and 3.
But despite the back-to-back blowouts — first to Oregon and then to Washington State — Colorado Buffaloes head coach Mel Tucker still believed his team is inches away from competing.
The missed deep connection between Steven Montez and Laviska Shenault who had beaten his defender to the end zone against Washington’s State only missed by inches.
The five free runners at Washington State’s quarterback who couldn’t bring him down only missed by inches.
The four defenders who got their hands on the ball against Washington State but couldn’t haul it in only missed by inches.
The Buffs were closer to the Cougars than the 41-10 final score would suggest.
At least that’s the message Mel Tucker wanted to send to his team when he switched up the weekly routine prior to the USC contest Friday night. Practice began Sunday instead of Monday, due to the short week, but instead of the standard Monday walkthrough, Tucker brought the entire team into one room and played the Washington State game from start to finish, less than 24 hours after its conclusion...
Steven Montez's best performance of the season was the product of the best offensive line performance of the season.
