COLUMBUS, Ohio -- After earning First Team All-GLIAC honors, senior corner Billy Eakins (Pickerington, Ohio) was tabbed as a D2CCA Second Team All-Super Region Four honoree on Friday.

Eakins also earned All-Region honors in 2014 as a junior, when he was also a First Team All-GLIAC pick. He missed most of 2015 due to injury.

Eakins finished his career with 255 tackles, which is the fourth-most in ODU history, and his 14 career interceptions are a school record. He's also the school record setter in passes defended with 43. Eakins played 48 games in his career, making 46 starts.

This fall, he finished with 58 tackles (35 solo) and three interceptions while also breaking up three other passes. Eakins made 10 tackles and picked off two passes at Findlay and also had eight tackles in wins over Saginaw Valley and Walsh.
