On defense, Travis Harris leads the team with 29 tackles, followed by Michael K. Scott with 21 tackles. Ryan Ransom has 14 tackles and leads the team with a pair of sacks.

The Builders hung tough early in their last game against Washington & Lee, matching score for score in the opening quarter before the Generals were able to pull away for the 56-21 win. Hiner paced the offense in that game with 194 rushing yards and two touchdowns to earn USCAA Offensive Player of the Week for the week ending on Sept. 29th.
