Larsen Named Preseason All-Conference

Thunderbird center Zach Larsen has been named to the Big Sky Preseason All-Conference team, the league announced Monday morning as part of the Big Sky Kickoff.

“He’s been a tremendous leader,” SUU head coach Demario Warren said. “He’s done everything we’ve asked of him, and gone above and beyond even my expectations of who he is. He came to me right after the season and wanted to know what he could do to make sure we didn’t have another season like last year. He’s committed, and he was really concentrated on how to get his teammates to be committed as well. We’re really excited about his leadership and obviously he’s one of the best centers in the country.”

Preseason accolades have rolled in for the senior offensive lineman this summer, as he has been named a Preseason All-American by both HERO Sports and Athlon Sports.

Larsen is one of Southern Utah’s representatives at the Big Sky Kickoff event in Spokane.

The Thunderbirds will open their season on August 31 in Las Vegas against the UNLV Rebels.
