WASHINGTON - Senior defensive end Alec May (Wrentham, Mass./King Phillip) was selected to The Sports Network 2014 FCS All-America Second Team when honors were announced on Tuesday morning. May becomes the 25th All-America selection in the history of the Georgetown football program.
May, who finished 11th in the voting for the Buck Buchanan Award, given to the most valuable defensive player in the FCS, becomes the fourth All-American selection since GU joined the Patriot League, joining Michael Ononibaku (2006), Andrew Schaetzke (2011) and Robert McCabe (2012). He was also named All-Patriot League First Team following the season.
"It is a great honor to have Alec named an All-American," Head Coach Rob Sgarlata said. "Throughout his career he played with relentless effort. I can honestly say he gave 100-percent on each and every play this season as evidenced by his leading the nation in sacks. He has been an integral part of our program for the past four years and will be missed."
May broke the program's single-season sacks record and led Division I FCS and the Patriot League with 16.5 (1.5/game). His dominant senior season helped him place third in program history, behind Janne Kouri and Schaetzke, with 29 career sacks, including 23.5 over his final 14 games.
His 20.5 tackles for loss led the Patriot League and was sixth in the FCS when the regular season ended, while his 142 tackle-for-loss yards led the nation. His 89 tackles were the most by an FCS defensive lineman.
He also excelled in the classroom during his four-year career earning a spot on the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll three times, in addition to becoming the first Hoya to earn PL All-Academic First Team two times.
He was one of five Patriot League student-athletes to earn All-America honors, joining Mason Halter, Chase Edmonds and Brian Wetzel of Fordham and Evan Byers of Bucknell.
