Alec May Named To All-America Team
Senior DL Alec May was named a second team All-America selection by SportsNetwork.com, as announced Dec. 23.
It is a great honor to have Alec named an All-American," said coach Rob Sgarlata. "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)," writes GUHoyas.com in the release. "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."
