In 2012, Larsen coached BSN Pre-season All-American Jack Lartigue to a record breaking season which resulted in Lartigue being honored as a First team SAA All-Conference selection.  During the course of that season, Lartigue set school records in almost every receiving category including single game receptions (18 against Trinity University), career receptions and career receiving yardage.  Lartigue went on to represent the South in the Division III Senior Classic All-Star Game as a starting Wide Receiver. The Lynx also had their first winning season in five years.
