Two members of Army’s secondary received postseason honors from the College Football Network.

Senior safety Quindrelin Hammonds and senior cornerback Bo Nicolas-Paul were named to the website’s all-independent, first-team defense.

Hammonds and Nicolas-Paul are tied for the team lead with three interceptions each. Hammonds’ 58 tackles are tied for second on the team. He is third in sacks (2.5) and fourth in tackles for loss (4).

Nicolas-Paul had a Pick Six in Army’s season opener and has added 28 tackles.

Army’s eight interceptions (Max DiDomenico and Cameron Jones, one each) are the most by Black Knights’ defensive backs since 2000 (9).

Army is currently one of four independent teams along with Notre Dame, UMass and UConn. The Black Knights will be moving to the American Athletic Conference next season.

Coach Jeff Monken was selected as the all-Independent coach of the year. Army (5-6), which can win the Commander in Chief’s trophy with a victory over Navy Saturday at Gillette Stadium, has rallied for three straight wins after a five-game losing streak.

Junior quarterback Bryson Daily, senior linebacker Leo Lowin, senior cornerbacks Cameron Jones and Jabari Moore and junior safety Max DiDomenico represented Army on the second teams.
