BEVERLY, Mass. – Endicott senior kicker Nick DiCariano (Trumbull, Conn.) has been named to the 2019 D3football.com Preseason All-America First Team, as announced by the organization yesterday.
DiCairano was chosen to the 2019 D3football.com Preseason All-America First Team after posting a stellar 2018 campaign which included Associated Press All-America Second Team accolades, D3football.com All-America Third Team and All-Region First Team honors, a spot on the New England Football Writers College Division All-New England Team, Commonwealth Coast Football (CCC Football) All-Conference First Team honors, and the Noontime Sports Special Teams Player of the Year award.
Statistically, last season, he led CCC Football placekickers in field goals made (12), field goals attempted (13), field goal percentage (92%, min. seven attempts), longest field goal made (45 yards), and points scored (80). His 80 points scored on the season finished second among all eligible positions in the conference as he was only one of two student-athletes in the league to register 80 or more points.
DiCairano also ranked second overall in PATs made (44) and PATs attempted (46), and fifth in PAT percentage (96%).
Among all NCAA Division III kickers, DiCairano ranks second overall in field goal percentage, No. 15 in field goals made per game (1.09), No. 68 in total points scored, and No. 96 in scoring.
DiCairano and his fellow Gulls open up their 2019 season at home on Friday, September 6 against Framingham State University at 7 PM.
