His 29 solo tackles and four pass break-ups ranked third on the club. He had a season-best eight tackles versus Montclair State, was also adding a 73-yard interception return for a touchdown.

Starting at defensive end in all 10 games for the Seahawks this season, William Regan totaled 24 tackles on the year, including 10 solo stops and five tackles for a loss. Consistently applying pressure, the junior lineman tied for the team-lead with five quarterback hurries. He recorded five tackles in back-to-back contests versus Framingham State and Endicott.

Defensive back Phil Terio had a standout freshman campaign, playing in nine of the Seahawks' 10 contests while starting each of the final five games of the season. He led the conference with nine pass break-ups while finishing third in the league with an average of 1.11 passes defended per game. In week six versus Curry, the freshman DB recorded six tackles, including a season-high five solo stops, while also adding an interception and a fumble recovery.
