He tied for 16th in the nation among Division I FCS players with five interceptions (.50 INT's per game) and second in the Patriot League, while leading a Georgetown team that finished eighth in the country in passes intercepted. Kaisamba was also 30th in the nation with 11 passes defended helping a GU defense rank 21st in Division I FCS in passing efficiency defense (110.52).
Kaisamba also tallied 69 tackles, 2.0 sacks and a forced fumble during the 2010 season.
