Adams started all 10 games at free safety for the Flying Dutchmen in 2017. One of the leaders in the secondary, he pulled in a pair of interceptions, broke up two passes, and recovered a fumble. He made 21 total tackles, including 16 solo stops and 0.5 TFL. He was named to the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Academic Honor Roll last month.

Fink will serve as team captain for the second season in a row after holding the same position as a junior. The running back was a key member of the team's backfield and rushed for 204 yards and two touchdowns before injury ended his fall after six games.

He also forced one fumble, recovered another, broke up a pair of passes and blocked a punt. He was pegged the MAC Special Teams Player of the Week after a win over Stevenson in October and was named LVC's 2017 Special Teams MVP. He also earned a spot on the MAC Academic Honor Roll.

Jenkins appeared in all 10 games at the strong safety spot and finished the year with two interceptions, including a memorable late-game pick that sealed a Homecoming victory over Stevenson in October. He also made 25 total tackles, forced one fumble, and recovered another.
