Rushe becomes Endicott's second NEFC All-New England student-athlete, joining former defensive end Kevin Eagan '11, to win the award in multiple seasons.  Rushe, already named a NEFC First Team kicker and punter with four NEFC Special Teams Player of the Week awards, earns NEFW All-New England punter after averaging 40.8 yards per punt.  He spotted 21 of his punts inside the opposition's 20-yard line with 12 fair catches and three touchbacks.  Rushe was especially effective during Endicott's run towarsd their second NEFC Championship, totaling 13 punts inside the opponent's 20 including a school record seven in the NEFC title game.  

Rushe was previously honored by the NEFW in 2012, a season that ended with Endicott's second straight Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) North Atlantic Bowl victory.  Rushe finishes his career as the Blue and Green's all-time leader in punt average (39.6) while holding numerous placekicking records.  He is also the program's leader in scoring with 356 career points (188 PATs, 56 FGs). 

Silva, a NEFC First Team Defensive Back for the second time in his career in 2013, earns his first NEFW All-New England nod after posting a career-high and team-high 101 tackles, an average of 9.2 tackles per game, and eight passes defended in 2013.  Silva recorded four interceptions and four pass break ups for the Gulls who led the NEFC with 15 pick offs this past fall.  The safety shined in Endicott's 24-0 shutout of Salve Regina in the NEFC Championship, intercepting the Seahawks quarterback twice and breaking up two pass attempts as the Gulls won the NEFC trophy for the second time in four seasons.  

Silva ends his stellar career in a tie for second with 2013 Endicott Athletics Hall of Fame inductee Pego Jean-Paul '08 with 12 career interceptions and first in total interception return yards (227).
