Coaching staff happy to have this linebacker return to the fold ... one of the leading tacklers two years ago gives the Big Green plenty of options in the middle of the defense.

JUNIOR (2010)
Sidelined for the season with an injury.

SOPHOMORE (2009)
Began and finished the season strong, starting the first three games and the last two ... second on the team in tackles, just one behind the leader, Pat Scorah ... made his mark in the season opener, collecting a career-high 12 tackles and forcing a fumble in the fourth quarter against Colgate ... posted nine more stops the following week at sixth-ranked New Hampshire ... made four solo tackles at #24 Holy Cross, one for a loss ... broke up passes twice in the fourth quarter on fourth down versus Columbia, sealing the 28-6 victory ...  amassed seven stops against Cornell, plus picked off a pass and returned it 17 yards in the fourth quarter to jump-start the 10-point comeback in the 20-17 double-overtime win ... broke back into the starting lineup at Brown and did not disappoint with a team-high 10 tackles, one going for a three-yard loss ... reached double digits in tackles for the third time with an even 10 in the season finale against Princeton.

FRESHMAN (2008)
Took the field in two contests, versus New Hampshire and Harvard.
