The 6-foot-3, 208-pound safety Will Warner will return back to Des Moines, Iowa for his senior season in 2020. The redshirt senior was an FCS All-American in 2018 and an All-PFL First Team Selection in both 2018 and 2019.
In 2018, Warner sat atop the FCS in both interceptions(8) and interception returns yards(223). After totaling four interceptions in 2019, Warner currently leads all active players in the FCS with 15 career interceptions. He finished last season with 37 tackles and five pass deflections. For the second straight season Warner was one of 16 players named to the FCS Buck Buchanan Award Watch List, which recognizes the defensive player of the year in the league.
What a game by @warner_william! His 3rd interception of the day seals the win for @DrakeBulldogsFB and sends our seniors off with a win in their last game at Drake Stadium. Will leads nation with 8 INTs this season. Great job by Bulldogs today beating second-place Marist. pic.twitter.com/ir8h6i7p1W— Brian Hardin (@DrakeADHardin) November 10, 2018
I am excited to see what Warner can do this season. Warner has proven he can force turnovers, and it will be interesting to see how he does against one of the nations top quarterback prospects in Trey Lance of North Dakota State who he goes against in Week 3.
Will Warner is returning to Drake and this kid is special. He is a hard hitting safety with great size and speed. He was named to the Buck Buchanan Award List in 2019 because of his play making ability. Warner comes from a huge family, he has 11 siblings, but this kid will make his family proud. The ball-hawking safety reminds me of Jordan Poyer. A bigger safety with great ball skills. He is athletic and looks the part when playing safety. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner.
