Utah State football: Aggie duo carries over high school rivalry
College football » Travis Reynolds and Nevin Lawson have faced each other since their prep days.

< Previous Page

Now Markosian is at center because of Larsen, at least for now.

Larsen is sidelined until the fall during camp, so it’s been Markosian to snap the ball to Chuckie Keeton and lead an offensive line unit with high expectations. The first team offense would be better off with Larsen, he said, but he’s happy to fill in.

"It’s just a little change-up, and it’ll help me out," he said. "In the long run, when Tyler gets back, I’ll be back at guard and hopefully we’ll roll on like nothing happened."

Aside from Larsen, Markosian, Kyle Whimpey, Kevin Whimpey and Eric Schultz are all returning starters. The unit has played like it in practice, helping free up Keeton for throws and also helping Joe Hill break off some nice runs.

Coach Matt Wells said he’s felt comfortable with Markosian stepping in, given his experience at the position — he took snaps last year at center, but didn’t start. They miss Larsen, but not as badly as they might have otherwise.

"It’s different, especially when he’s got a 300-pound nose guard over top him while he’s making the calls," Wells said. "He’s been a good leader there."
