CEDAR CITY, Utah - The anticipation for the upcoming college football season grows as the 2023 Preseason All-UAC Team, presented by The Bluebloods, has been officially announced. Representing all nine teams in the conference, a total of 66 talented athletes have been selected, with Southern Utah Athletes earning well-deserved recognition on both the First and Second Teams.

Coach DeLane Fitzgerald said

"With preseason All-Conference and All-American teams, it is a prediction and there is some guessing that is involved. This particular preseason All-conference team should motivate our players that were named and motivate our really good players that were not named even more. In my opinion, we have four or five good football players that were left out.

The representatives from Southern Utah have showcased their exceptional skills and commitment to the sport, securing their spots among the best in the conference. Highlighting the First Team Defense is linebacker Kohner Cullimore, a formidable force on the field whose outstanding performances have caught the attention of fans. Additionally, the Second Team Defense features defensive lineman Payton Payne, who has demonstrated remarkable prowess in pressuring opposing offenses.

On the offensive side, Southern Utah's quarterback Justin Miller earned a spot on the Second Team Offense for his impressive abilities as a leader and playmaker. His skill set and dedication to the game have proven him to be a vital asset to the team's success and he will look to break several program records this fall.

The UAC All-Conference Team is a highly competitive group, and the Southern Utah Athletes' well-deserved selection demonstrates their commitment to excellence and dedication to their team's success.

As the 2023 season approaches, fans eagerly anticipate witnessing the remarkable talents of the Southern Utah Athletes on the field in this first season of UAC football. The coaching staff and the entire Southern Utah community are excited to support and cheer on their exceptional players throughout the upcoming season.
