PARK CITY, Utah — Sacramento State wide receiver DeAndre Carter was named to the Big Sky Conference preseason all-conference team it was announced today as part of the Big Sky Kickoff.

Carter, who was a first team all-Big Sky Conference selection following the 2013 season after setting career high with 64 receptions, 934 yards and 15 total touchdowns, earned the preseason honor for the first time in his career. He has also been named to several preseason All-America teams this summer.

As a junior last year, Carter's 14 receiving touchdowns tied the school single-season record. Carter caught a pass in all 11 games in which he played, including 12 against Southern Oregon and Montana. After being held out of the end zone against San Jose State and Arizona State, Carter set the school record with five receiving touchdowns against Southern Oregon. From that point, he had at least one touchdown in seven of the next eight games.

Eastern Washington quarterback Vernon Adams was named the league's preseason Offensive MVP. Last year, Adams threw for 4,994 and 55 touchdown passes. Montana defensive end Zack Wagenmann was tabbed as the preseason Defensive MVP. Wagenmann has been a first team all-Big Sky selection the last two years.
