"My first impression was, he's huge. Which he is. Holy mackerel, this guy is big," Sullivan said. "Then I watched him. He was down here shooting a little basketball. [I thought], 'Man, does he look really athletic.' That proved to be the case, too. I've been really lucky the past three or four years having some good, big linemen. Larry was another one. Last year we lost Mark Shuman to Virginia Tech, Jacob Ruby to the University of Richmond and Russell Bodine to North Carolina. All three of them played [on the offensive line] here the year before, graduated and went on to college. Getting a guy like Larry, who's that big and athletic, was a big plus for us."Sullivan said Mazyck, a 6-foot-7, 320-pound offensive tackle, and his family were looking for a school to provide more structure, more challenging academics and a higher level of competition than he received playing for Friendship Collegiate in Washington. Sullivan was happy to accommodate the Mazyck family's wishes, welcoming him into Blue Devils' program. His transition to military life "took time," but it didn't take too long for him to get comfortable as Fork Union's starting left tackle.
