The Grizzlies also lead the Jayhawk Conference with 18 interceptions and 34 take-aways.

Following the 2006 season three Grizzlies linebackers earned All-Conference honors and signed Division I scholarships, including Kensington, KS native Austin Panter, who was named Jayhawk Conference MVP, Region VI MVP, and was selected for All-America honors. In December Panter became the first ever Butler defensive player to earn NJCAA National Player of the Year honors.

In 2005, Schaffner's first season, the Grizzlies defense led the Jayhawk Conference in every major defensive category, including scoring defense, total defense, rushing defense, pass defense efficiency, QB sacks and take-aways. Following the 2005 season three Butler linebackers earned All-Conference honors and both sophomore linebackers signed NCAA Division I scholarships.
