Career Defense

***Note: Nearly all defensive records shown on this page are from 1993-present because those are the years The Progress kept individual defensive statistics.  There is little doubt that players whose careers came before 1993 (one of whom being 1968 High School All-American LB Greg Beish) would be included in these lists if records of their defensive performance survived.
