Hackett, Woods honored by

Hobart College had two student-athletes named to the All-East teams which were announced by the website this morning. Sophomore kicker Kyle Hackett earned a spot on the second team while senior tight end Matthew Woods received third team honors. For the second season in a row, Hackett led Division III in field goal percentage. He was 9-for-9 on 3-pointers this season, the only kicker in the division with a perfect percentage while averaging 1.0 makes per game. Hackett was Hobart's leading scorer, converting all 37 of his PATs for 64 total points. He led the Liberty League in points per game by a kicker (7.1) and was third in scoring average overall. The three-time Liberty League Special Teams Performer of the Week broke the Hobart record for points by kicking with 13 in the win over Morrisville (2 FGs, 7 PATs). Hackett also handled kickoffs for the Statesmen, averaging a league-best 56.3 yards and tying for the league lead in touchbacks with 13. In 19 career games, Hackett is 19-for-19 on field goals, tied for the most career makes in program history. He's 80-for-82 on PATs for his career. The two-time Liberty League Special Teams Player of the Year and two-time All-Liberty League first team pick is making his second appearance on the All-East teams after receiving third team honors as a first-year. In his first season as a starter, Woods caught 21 passes for 259 yards and six touchdowns, all career highs. He was third on the team in receptions and receiving yards this season and tied for second in receiving touchdowns. The first team All-Liberty League selection had more catches, more receiving yards and more TD receptions than any other tight end in the conference. Woods caught a season-high five passes for a season-high 65 yards and a touchdown against nationally-ranked Rensselaer. A team captain this season, Woods came to Hobart as a quarterback, but switched to tight end following his first season on campus. He appeared in 39 career games, amassing 52 receptions for 555 yards and 11 touchdowns. Hobart ended its 125th campaign with a 5-4 record, the program's 11th consecutive winning season. The Statesmen tied for third in the Liberty League with a 3-2 mark in conference play. D3foot
