  2022 GLIAC DEFENSIVE BACK OF THE YEAR: Abe Swanson, Grand Valley State,...Grand Valley State junior linebacker Abe Swanson has been named the 2022 GLIAC Defensive Back of the Year. Swanson played a key role in a GVSU defense that led the Lakers to the 2022 GLIAC Championship and the 10th undefeated regular-season (11-0) in program history. Swanson, an All-American candidate, tallied 73 tackles (29 solo/44 assisted), 7.0 tackles for loss (-25), 2.5 quarterback sacks (-11), picked off one pass, recovered a fumble, forced a fumble and recorded seven QB hurries in 2022. He was the leader of a defense that led the nation in points allowed per game (10.3) and ranked among the national leaders and led the GLIAC in rushing defense (64.9 ypg), first downs allowed (154), redzone defense (.667) and total defense (264.1).

GVSU recorded 82 tackles for loss (-337), 36 QB sacks (-233), 61 QB hurries and 59 pass break-ups behind the play of Swanson. GVSU limited opponents to just 13.5 first downs per game, including five that were held under 10 firsts downs in a game. Swanson was named the GLIAC Defensive Player of the Week twice during the season, once after recording seven tackles, 1.5 TFL (-6) and recovering a fumble at Ferris State, and a second time after his 12-tackle, 1.0 TFL (-5) and one interception performance versus Saginaw Valley State. Abe has been named the GLIAC Defensive Player of the Week five times in his career. - 2022 GLIAC Football
