Trey Larsen aced a walk-on tryout more than a year ago, earning a slotback’s spot on the Warriors’2018 spring roster.
But his work in those practices and the offseason program did not result in a spot on last year’s team.
Undaunted, Larsen participated once again in last month’s walk-on tryouts. He initially was not put on the callback list.
But this week, he has rejoined the Warriors — as a cornerback.

The unlikeliest hero — Inoke Funaki — was the third-string quarterback entering the 2008 season. But Funaki was pressed into duty that year, and led the Warriors to a victory over Fresno State — the program’s first road win against a nationally ranked opponent.
Funaki humble as always, attended Tuesday’s practice.
