The senior broke the previous record of 212 set by NMU Athletics Hall of Famer Ricky Volcy.

Dr. John Rebers, a biology professor at NMU, was named the Most Influential/Supportive Faculty Member this year. Rebers was nominated primarily for his efforts in December and January with NMU Football recruiting events. Rebers participated in five seperate events during those two months and was willing to spend up to three hours with prospective student-athletes and their families.
