He knows how to fight off blocks and plays disciplined defense. Grider’s play has helped spark Halstead to a 2-0 start to 2020. He probably tops out as an NAIA talent.

DB, Trevor EricksonTrevorErickson6'2" | QBChapman | 2021StateKS, 6’2”, 180, Chapman (’21 Ranked No. 234) – Erickson the only defensive back on this list at 22 tackles for the Irish.
