Iowa State (1983)
"Great safety play on defense at NIU will be determined by how well we teach, drill, and execute fundamentals. We will be an aggressive unit that plays with great passion and enthusiasm. We will pride ourselves on being great tacklers and exemplify the meaning of relentless pursuit. Nothing ignites a football stadium like a hard hitting defense that plays at a fever pitch from start to finish. That's what we want people to think of when they watch the Huskies safeties play."
