Larson makes powerful return home for Jacks

Bookmark and Share

He's the "biggest" weapon in the Jackrabbit arsenal.

"He's done things that guys at SDSU have never been able to do before like all the dunks that he's had!"  Brayden Carlson says.

"He's really been an anchor on both ends, the offensive and defensive."  Scott Nagy says.

And it didn't take long for the Summit League to learn one thing about Cody Larson.

"Whenever we're winning I'm happy.  Whatever coach wants me to do.  He's told me to be a force on the defensive end and protect the rim."  Larson says.

Happiness on a basketball court seemed impossible a year ago for the Sioux Falls native.

A series of legal troubles and suspensions at Roosevelt and at Florida took Larson off the court.....

...But it didn't stop Scott Nagy from giving him one last chance at a fresh start.

"He's been a great teammate, 4.0 student, very intelligent kid.  And, I would say, more so Cody's had a more positive influence on us than maybe we've had on him."  Nagy says.

He's been just as good on the court as off, averaging nearly 14 points and seven rebounds a game.

"I'm incredibly grateful for the opportunity that the coaching staff gave to come in here and, you know, just do what I love to do, and that's play basketball and have fun."  Larson says.

And this week, for the first time since his days at Roosevelt, he'll play in Sioux Falls, where he hopes to help lead SDSU to a 3rd straight championship party.

"The crowd is gonna be insane.  Just playing in the environment is the thing I look forward to the most.  That celebration would be incredible!"  Larson says.
