DiCairano also ranked second overall in PATs made (44) and PATs attempted (46).
Among all NCAA Division III kickers, DiCairano ranked second overall in field goal percentage and No. 15 in field goals
The AP Division III All-America first and second teams were chosen by a panel of sports information directors from NCAA Division III institutions around the nation.
DiCairano is the Gulls’ first student-athlete to earn All-America honors since Nate Lewis '15 (Acushnet, Mass.) and Mike Marini '15 (Trumbull) received USA College Football first team and USA College Football honorable mention accolades, respectively, in 2014.
Endicott finished the 2018 season at 7-4 overall (5-1 CCC).
Under first-year head coach Paul McGonagle, the Gulls finished with a winning record for the first time since 2013 and also made their first playoff appearance since 2013 with a New England Bowl bid against Merchant Marine.
