All-Ivy League honorable mention at linebacker ... second on the team with 64 tackles and tied for conference lead with two fumbles recovered ... had at least one stop in every game and at least five in eight of the 10 contests ... on first tackle of the year, sniffed out a screen pass and turned it into a six-yard loss against 22nd-ranked New Hampshire ... had five other tackles and recovered a fumbled punt as Dartmouth beat the Wildcats, 22-21, for the first time in 40 years ... also had six stops against Penn and Yale, plus recovered a fumble on a sack against the Bulldogs that led to a Big Green field goal ... contributed nine tackles to the 20-17 victory over Towson ... four of his six stops at Columbia came short of the marker on third down, with three of those forcing the Lions to settle for field goals ... recorded six tackles for the fifth time during the season against Brown before amassing a career-best 17 stops at Princeton, the most by an Big Green player in four years.

SOPHOMORE (2015)
Made quite an impact on the defense early in the season before injuries limited his play ... helped out on three tackles in the season-opening 31-10 win at Georgetown ... recorded a season-high six stops — all in the second half — in the 49-7 victory over Sacred Heart ... contributed four tackles, three of which came on kickoff coverages, to the 41-20 triumph at Penn to start Ivy League play.
