VERMILLION, S.D.—South Dakota linebacker Tyler Starr has been named the Missouri Valley Football Conference Defensive Player of the Year as announced by the conference office Wednesday. Starr is the first Coyote to receive conference MVP honors since Jordan Davis and Stefan Logan in 2006.

Starr (Little Rock, Iowa/George-Little Rock HS) is the nation’s active career leader in forced fumbles with 13. He is also second in solo tackles for loss with 39 and fourth in total sacks with 27. He earned those achievements in just three years of play.

This season, Starr led the MVFC in sacks (9.0), tackles for loss (15.0) and forced fumbles (4). He finished second on the team in tackles with 71. He also had an interception and was credited with four pass breakups.

Starr had at least six tackles in each of his last eight games. He registered at least two sacks three times. He had a season-high eight tackles, two sacks and three tackles-for-loss in a win against Missouri State and got his first collegiate interception against Western Illinois.
Starr is one of 20 finalists for the Buck Buchanan Award for the top defensive player in FCS.
