Black Hills State Leads the NCAA in Interceptions

Multiple interceptions in a single game is noteworthy. Five interceptions in a single game in mind boggling. Black Hills State, a D2 school in Spearfish, South Dakota, recorded five interceptions against Chadron State last week, which bumped their interception total to 25. This now leads all of the NCAA across all divisions.

Through ten games this season, Black Hills State not only has 25 interceptions, but has recorded four or more interceptions in three games. A big shout out goes to Sophomore Defensive Back, Drew Hebel, who has nine of those interceptions on the season. The Yellow Jackets are currently one interception behind their conference record and can break the record by recording two interceptions against Colorado Mines in their final game of the season.

The leaders for interceptions in their respective divisions are as follows; FBS has a tie between Appalachian State and San Diego State with 16, FCS is North Dakota with 18, and D3 is Stevenson with 22.

Black Hills State’s defense has been dominate all season and are looking to continue that type of play for Senior Day on November 12th against Colorado Mines, where they could break history.
