Stevenson

Nick Dillon, defensive lineman, sr. — At 6-foot-2 and 275 pounds, the Eastern Michigan commit is a disrupter at the line of scrimmage. In Saturday’s 24-21 win over Loyola, he made two significant plays. His sack on third down in the second quarter led to the Patriots taking a 17-0 lead. Dillon later tackled Loyola senior quarterback Aidan Walsh for no gain on third down, eventually forcing a turnover on downs with Stevenson ahead 24-21.
