Posted on: December 4th, 2012 by Joseph Vanden Acker

Lawrence University football star Tyler Mazur has been named to the D3football.com All-West Region team.

Mazur (Reedsburg, Wis./Reedsburg), a senior wide receiver, was a third-team selection.

Mazur, an All-Midwest Conference selection in 2011 and 2012, caught 53 passes for 1,139 yards and 13 touchdowns this season. Mazur led the Midwest Conference at 113.9 receiving yards per game. He finished sixth at 5.3 catches per contest and averaged a league-best 21.5 yards per catch. Mazur was fourth in the conference in scoring at 8.0 points per game and was the top receiver in that category.

Mazur, who had two 200-yard receiving games this season, became the first Lawrence player to post 1,000 receiving yards in a season since Zach Michael did it back in 2003. Mazur finished his career with 2,253 receiving yards despite being a wide receiver for only two seasons.

Mazur finished his career ranked fourth in receiving yards, fifth in catches (130), fifth in touchdown catches (25), fourth in total touchdowns (37) and fifth in points (224).

Mazur is Lawrence’s first all-region selection since Ken Alvord and Tyler Krzewina back in 2006. Alvord was selected as a punter to the D3football.com and Don Hansen’s Football Gazette teams, and Krzewina made the Football Gazette squad.
