Dressler was tied for the team lead with 104 tackles and led the CAA in tackles per game at 9.5, a half of a tackle more than any other player. He currently ranks 25th in the nation in tackles per game. He combined with Wheeler to become the first Spider duo to each record 100 tackles in a season since Eric McBride and Collin McConaghy in 2007.

Dressler posted four games of 10 or more tackles this season, none more impressive than a career-high 20-tackle performance in the Spiders' win at No. 18 Maine. His 20 tackles are the most for any player in the NCAA FCS this season and the most for a CAA player in a single game since 2017 (Nate Hatalsky, UAlbany, 21). Additionally, his 20 tackles are the most for a Spider in a single game since Darius McMillan recorded 20 against William & Mary in 2011. - Richmond Football
