Needham, who just wrapped up his senior season for the Thunderbirds, was a force for SUU every time he stepped on the field. Needham led the team in tackles this past season with 100. Seven of those tackles were for a loss. He also had seven pass breakups and two fumble recoveries during the course of the year. 

Needham left Southern Utah as a three-time member of the All-Conference First Team, and earned Linebacker of the Year recognition by the College Football Performance Awards following his sophomore season in 2015. He was also named to the Hero Sports 2017 FCS All-America Team.
