AUSTIN, Texas – For the second year in a row, Urbana University’s Mikal Toliver has been named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® Division II Football Team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). He’s one of eight defensive linemen to be awarded Academic All-America® at the D-II level.

Toliver, a senior from Dayton, wrapped up his playing career at UU with the second-most sacks in school history (23.5). A three-time All-MEC first-team selection and All-MEC Academic Team honoree, he finished with 109 tackles, 44 career tackles for loss and seven forced fumbles in 28 games.
