Silva, a NEFC First Team Defensive Back for the second time in his career in 2013, earns his first NEFW All-New England nod after posting a career-high and team-high 101 tackles, an average of 9.2 tackles per game, and eight passes defended in 2013.  Silva recorded four interceptions and four pass break ups for the Gulls who led the NEFC with 15 pick offs this past fall.  The safety shined in Endicott's 24-0 shutout of Salve Regina in the NEFC Championship, intercepting the Seahawks quarterback twice and breaking up two pass attempts as the Gulls won the NEFC trophy for the second time in four seasons.  

Silva ends his stellar career in a tie for second with 2013 Endicott Athletics Hall of Fame inductee Pego Jean-Paul '08 with 12 career interceptions and first in total interception return yards (227).
