WASHINGTON - Senior defensive end Alec May (Wrentham, Mass./King Phillip) continues to collect postseason honors, earning a spot on the 2014 ECAC Division I FCS First Team when honors were announced earlier this week. May becomes the fifth Hoya to earn All-ECAC honors since 2010.
May earned All-America Second Team honors from The Sports Network on Tuesday after finishing 11th in the voting for the Buck Buchanan Award, given annually to the most outstanding defensive player in the FCS. He was also a First Team All-Patriot League selection in addition to earning PL All-Academic First Team honors for the second consecutive season.
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 Andrew 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.
In the classroom May also excelled 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.
