Up Close with Greg Heban
Sept. 19, 2013
Greg Heban tops all Hoosier defenders with 215 stops, 150 solos, 12 tackles for loss, six interceptions, 19 pass breakups and two fumble recoveries in his career. The fifth-year senior defensive back from Muncie, Ind., graduated in May of 2013 with a bachelor's degree in exercise science. Heban is currently working on a second degree in nutrition science and is one of 30 candidates for the Senior CLASS Award and a nominee for the AFCA Good Works Team.
Talk about the excitement of playing under the lights in primetime with Missouri coming into Memorial Stadium:
You're one of just 30 candidates nationally for the 2013 Senior CLASS Award®. How important is being an overall representative of IU, not just on the field?
As a guy who switched from cornerback to safety, how about the job Tim Bennett's done moving from safety to cornerback?
If you had to construct an intramural basketball team, which four teammates would join you in the starting five?
Despite being a starter on defense, you've also been a special teams standout throughout your career. Do you take a lot of pride in that phase of the game?
Coaches are always emphasizing the importance of all three phases, offense, defense and special teams. Special teams is not just another play. We take that real seriously and it's something I enjoy.
