The Big Sky announced its football preseason all-conference team Monday, with returning slotback Kori Garcia the lone Cal Poly player among those named.
Garcia, a junior, was thrust into a starting role last season as a result of the August arrest of incumbent starter Kristaan Ivory in connection to an alleged robbery attempt at a Cal Poly fraternity house.
Garcia averaged 6.6 yards a carry, amassing 1,039 yards and seven touchdowns.
Eastern Washington wide receiver Cooper Kupp was named the preseason offensive MVP, and Southern Utah defensive end James Cowser was the defensive choice.
