Ten Pierce County athletes named to Dunn-St. Croix all-conference teams

The Dunn-St. Croix Conference released the all-conference football and volleyball teams on Friday, Oct. 20, and 10 Pierce County Herald athletes were recognized for their 2017 performances.

Spring Valley defensive end Zacc Larson was named to Dunn-St. Croix football's first defensive team, and was also named the co-most valuable defensive player of the year with Glenwood City's Carson Strong.

"It feels great to be given this award, because our conference is a tough one and there's a lot of good athletes in it," Larson said.

The senior defensive end has been playing football for 12 years, and said he enjoys the competition of the game.

"I work very hard in practice to try to improve myself and get ready for each game," Larson said. "My teammates help me a ton by competing against me and making me go 100 percent in practice."

Larson has 36 tackles, five sacks, five forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries on the 2017 season after 10 games.
