Follow North Texas At Its First C-USA Media Day
IRVING, Texas - With the opening of pre-season practices just two weeks away and the season-opener against Idaho looming in six weeks, the North Texas football team will be participating in its first Conference USA Media Day today at the DFW Marriott and the Fox Sports Southwest studios.
Mean Green head coach Dan McCarney and senior linebacker Zach Orr will represent North Texas at C-USA Media Day.
Orr was second-team all-conference in 2012 after recording a team-high 108 tackles, a career-high and the first time in his career that he topped the 100-tackle mark. Orr had six games of double-digit tackles last season, and comes into 2013 having been named to the watch list for the 2013 Rotary Lombardi Award today, one of only two players from Conference USA to make the watch list.
