PRINCETON, N.J.—Eight Columbia football players earned All-Ivy League honors led by two First Team selections in senior Gianmarco Rea and freshman placekicker Oren Milstein, the conference office announced on Tuesday afternoon. The All-Ivy League Team is picked by the conference’s eight football coaches.

Along with Rea and Milstein, senior offensive lineman Kendall Pace, senior running back Alan Watson, junior defensive lineman Lord Hyeamang, senior defensive back Brock Kenyon, junior defensive back Cameron Roane and senior punter Cameron Nizialek were Second Team All-Ivy picks.

The Ivy League’s leader in tackles with 108, Rea also ranked No. 12 nationally in total tackles per game (10.8) and No. 12 in solo tackles per game (5.8). The Birmingham, Mich. native lead the Lions in both tackles for loss (15.0-46) and sacks (5.0-26) and reached double figure tackles in nine of 10 games on the year. He registered a career-high 15 tackles at Harvard on Nov. 5. Previously, Rea earned CoSIDa Academic All-District honors and is a candidate for the Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year Award. Rea concluded his four-year, 35-game career with 218 tackles (110 solo), 20 tackles for loss for 63 yards and 6.0 sacks. Rea is a psychology major.

A unanimous pick as the First Team Ivy League kicker, Milstein completed a successful first collegiate season that saw him convert 12 of 13 field goal attempts and finish a perfect 16-16 on point after attempts. A candidate for the national placekicker of the year (Fred Mitchell Award), Milstein ranks among national leaders in both field goal percentage (No. 2 at .923) and field goals per game (No. 15 at 1.23), while leading the Ivy League in field goals (12), field goal percentage (.923) and placing second in kick scoring (5.7 ppg.). He also led the Lions in scoring (52 points) and kicked two game-winning field goals. During the season, Milstein also earned two Special Teams Player of the Week and Rookie of the Week honors from the Ivy League and set the school record for most field goals in a game (5 at Wagner, Oct. 8) and most kick scoring points scored in a game (15 at Wagner, Oct. 8). Milstein is a freshman Columbia College student from Boca Raton, Fla.

Pace, started all 10 games of the 2016 season at left tackle. The Suitland, Md. native was a stalwart on Columbia’s offensive line as he accumulated 39 career starts in four years at Columbia (2013-16). Pace is a political science major.

A New Albany, Ohio native, Watson emerged as Columbia’s starting running back midway through the 2016 season. He finished fourth in the Ivy League in rushing yards per game (62.7) and led the Lions in rushing yards (627), carries (133) and yards per carry (4.7) and also caught 17 passes for 120 yards. In 2016, he totaled three 100-yard rushing games including two consecutive to close out the 2016 season, including a career-best 158-yard performance at Brown on Nov. 19. His final carry as a Columbia Lion resulted in a 69-yard touchdown run at Brown. Watson is a sociology major.

A Lakeville, Minn. native, Hyeamang ranked sixth on the Lions’ defense with 38 total tackles (17 solo). He also finished with 7.0 tackles for loss for 22 yards and one sack. In his three-year Columbia career, Hyeamang has totaled 52 tackles in 29 games. Hyeamang is a psychology major.

As Columbia’s starting safety, Kenyon ranked sixth among Ivy League leaders and led the Lions with three interceptions on the year. The Austin, Texas native also ranked No. 11 among league leaders in total tackles (71). He also finished with 43 solo tackles and three pass deflections. The senior wrapped up his career with 200 tackles (119 solo), three interceptions and 11 pass breakups in 40 games played and 26 starts. Kenyon is an economics major.

Playing mostly in one-on-one coverage situations, Roane totaled 35 tackles, 2.0 tackles for loss and seven pass breakups from his cornerback position in 2016. Over his three-year career, Roane has made 51 tackles, intercepted one pass and broke up 14 passes in 25 games played and 10-plus starts. Roane is an architecture major from Durham, N.C..

As a punter, Nizialek earns All-Ivy League honors for the second consecutive year. In 2016, he led the league in punting with a 44.8 yards per punt average (34-1,524) and a long of 65 yards.
