FARMINGTON, Utah -- It’s all-star game time and the Big Sky Conference has some talented seniors set to compete in all-star games over the next couple of weeks.

The league has 13 players from nine Big Sky teams set to play in six different all-star games. That’s three more players than last year and eight more than the year prior. Montana State leads the way with a trio of athletes listed on teams, while Portland State and Weber State have two apiece. Cal Poly, Idaho Montana, Northern Arizona, Northern Colorado, and UC Davis each have one.

Dante Olson, Charlie Taumoepeau and Khalil Dorsey are all two-time Big Sky First Team honorees. The all-star games are a chance for players to shine on the big stage one more time while representing their schools.
