New linebacker added to UNA defense

FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) - The University of North Alabama Lions are getting ready for their opener against Jacksonville State.

Bobby Wallace has a ton of talent and quality depth within his program. Wallace has brought in a few transfers as well to enhance his roster, including linebacker Darius Wright. Wright played at East Carolina before coming to Florence.

"Darius Wright has had a great camp," Wallace said. "He was in a position we needed. It was kinda a double dose. Not only did we fulfill a need, but we fulfilled it with a great player."

UNA travels to face Jacksonville State on Sept. 3.
