Todd Davis Named Preseason All-Big SKy

PARK CITY, Utah — Sacramento State linebacker Todd Davis was named to the preseason all-Big Sky Conference team, it was announced today as part of the league's media days.

The junior was one of five linebackers named to the team which was voted upon by media members across the conference. As a sophomore in 2011, Davis earned honorable mention all-Big Sky honors after leading the team with 96 total tackles. The Palmdale, Calif., native also had 5.5 tackles-for-loss, including one sack, forced two fumbles and intercepted a pass.

Davis was one of the more consistent players for the Hornets, recording at least seven tackles in nine of the team's 11 games. His career high came in the team's 29-28 overtime upset of Oregon State where he had 12 stops. Davis was named the Big Sky Defensive Player of the Week after tallying 10 tackles and forcing a pair of fumbles in the 14-0 shutout at Northern Colorado.

The preseason all-Big Sky defense was dominated by Montana State which had five of the 13 selections. Leading the way were linebacker Jody Owens and defensive tackle Zach Minter who were both unanimous selections. Owens was also named the preseason defensive player of the year.

On offense, Southern Utah quarterback Brad Sorensen earned the preseason offensive player of the year honor.
