The phrase “Football is family” is one that Loper safety Dallas Vaughn can relate to. The sophomore from St. Louis, Missouri, had an unexpected journey to UNK. Vaughn originally signed to play football at Alabama A&M University, but the death of his brother on top of eligibility issues led to his return to St. Louis. “I knew I wanted to come home when they told me I wasn’t going to be able to play football,” he said. Then fate stepped in.
