In 2018, the Lopers were dead last in the MIAA in interceptions. In UNK's first scrimmage the defense forced five turnovers, three of them coming from Williams and Tolentino.

"You know they are veteran guys too. They know how to work," Head Coach Josh Lynn said. "They've picked up the scheme extremely well. It just brings a little bit of an older feel to a young position group."

Lopers open up their season next Thursday, Sept. 5 on the road at Missouri Southern St.
