Big Sky predictions have UCD’s Turay earning all-league, Aggies finishing 11th

PARK CITY, Utah — If the Big Sky prognosticators are right, fullback Dalton Turay will be a bright spot, but the UC Davis football team will not be among the conference’s top teams in the 2013 season.

Turay, a 5-foot-10 220-pound junior who prepped at Amador Valley in Pleasanton, scored a team-high eight touchdowns last season, his first with the Aggies.

He was the only fullback, and the only UCD player named to the All-Big Sky Conference football team when the league announced its selections on Monday at its media kickoff event.

Turay earned all-conference honorable mention in 2012, when he gained 234 yards on 55 carries but was a true weapon in the red zone. He carried the ball to paydirt seven times, then added a TD catch, one of his 21 receptions for 156 yards that season.

“It means a lot for Dalton to receive recognition,” said head coach Ron Gould, who is getting set for his first season at the helm of the Aggies. “It’s a tribute to his hard work and dedication and all of the things he did last year. It speaks well for our program and the direction we’re going.”

The Big Sky also released its preseason polls on Monday with UCD picked to finish 11th by the media and 12th by the league’s coaches.

“The polls are all predicated on what happened the year before and what we have coming back,” Gould said. “I don’t get caught up in any of that. That’s why you play on Saturdays. The most important thing is what we do day in and day out and every Saturday.

“Respect is something that’s earned and not given,” he added. “Each and every day and each and every weekend you’ve got to go out and earn people’s respect.”

Notes: Montana State senior quarterback DeNarius McGhee, two-time Big Sky MVP, was selected as the Preseason Offensive Player of the Year. Montana senior linebacker Jordan Tripp was predicted to be the top defensive player in the conference. The all-conference picks were voted on by Big Sky media and sports information directors.  … The Aggies will open fall camp on Aug. 4.
