Secor, the NESCAC's defensive rookie of the year in '03, earned first-team all-conference honors during his third season. The junior led the team and was tied for the NESCAC lead with four interceptions in '05. He was third on the team with 60 tackles, while ranking second with four pass break-ups. The safety had a dozen tackles this season vs. Amherst, while earning 13 stops against Trinity. He had a pair of picks at Bates, returning them for 77 yards combined.
