Broc Langren, a center on Mullen’s football team for the past four seasons, will play in the Colorado High School Coaches Association All-State Games.

To be held at Adams State College in Alamosa, Langren will join others from the seven classifications for an all-star game on Friday, June 8, 7:30 p.m. kickoff.

Five-foot-11, 300 pounds, Langren was all-league multiple times and enjoyed assorted academic honors. He has a 3.8 grade-point average. A winner of Mullen’s Torch Award, Langren also is in the National Honor Society.

A member of the Mustangs’ Engineering Club, Langren also was with the Young Republicans in addition to volunteering his time with the Denver Rescue Mission and Childrens Hospital.

Langren, who also plays lacrosse, will play football at South Dakota Mines and Tech in Rapid City.

The games will be held from June 5-9. They have been in existence for decades and been offered in a variety of Colorado spots, including in Denver and Aurora. They continue to battle other events and sports among larger schools in the off-season as well as early graduation and college administrators discouraging participation, but remain widely popular at the mid-range level through small schools.

They are viewed as a last-hurrah of sorts for prep athletes before they head to college or join the work force.
