Ty Larsen has been named the Male Eagle of the Month for his play in the month of September. The senior linebacker from Warrensburg, Mo. is off to the best start of his four year career this season with 49 tackles and 5.5 tackles for a loss. He also has an interception and fumble recovery this season.

Larsen has been a key component in both of Avila's victories this season, but it is what he did in a loss at William Penn on Sept. 30 that ultimately pushed him over the top to earn Player of the Month.

Larsen made history against William Penn, racking up a program record 25 tackles against the Statesmen. Of the 25 tackles, 11 were solo. The 25 tackles were a career-high for the senior, and it broke the previous school record of 20 set by current teammate Wyatt Beebe in 2016.
