UC Davis Aggies' linebacker Ryan Dimino during a practice at UC Davis in Davis on Thursday, September 5, 2013. The former Del Campo star and Bee Player of the Year is emerging as the key player of an Aggies defense looking to replace graduated linebackers Jordan Glass and Byron Gruendl, the team's two leading tacklers last year. Dimino, who battled injuries his first two seasons, had a strong game against South Dakota.
