He produced 190 tackles, 43 for loss, 14.5 sacks, eight pass breakups, seven forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and three interceptions.

A five-year starter, Archer has played 54 games. He has 177 career points on 82 goals and 95 assists. With six assists on Saturday, the Syracuse native broke the Statesmen’s Division I career assist record. He is currently second on the Division I points list.

He finished the year second on the team with 29 points on 15 goals and 14 assists. Maguyon tied the Statesmen’s single-game record with four assists in a win over Castleton. He also picked up four points against Johnson and Wales.
