CEDAR FALLS, IA-- We take a look at the top dogs on defense from Day One of the Back to Ballin Event at the UNI-Dome! Note: These are all players "as seen" or referred to us by all the coaches at the tournament!

Chris Day | DB, Louisa-Muscatine/Fire Dragons (IA) | (2023)

Every time I turned my head on Saturday morning at the UNI-Dome, Louisa-Muscatine’s Chris Day of the Fire Dragons was making plays on the ball, collecting multiple interceptions on the afternoon. He has a great close-in ability and made plays on one of the 2023 class watchlist quarterbacks in Iowa.

Skyler James | LB, Des Moines Roosevelt/Team Premier (IA) | (2022)

Another name I put pen to paper on the opposite of the field from the Fire Dragons was Skyler James of Des Moines Roosevelt. I became a big fan of this kid’s footwork on Saturday as I witnessed his sound vision when he brought in an interception against the Fire Dragons.

When I broke down James’s film, I saw a kid that is a versatile linebacker that can get in the backfield
