Nate Harvey leads college football in tackles for loss, and he made history for East Carolina on Wednesday when he became the Pirates’ first-ever conference defensive player of the year.

Harvey, who was a reserve running back a season ago before switching to defensive end this preseason as a senior, was picked as the American Athletic Conference defensive player of the year, while wide receiver Trevon Brown and kicker Jake Verity joined Harvey as first-team all-conference selections.

A Knightdale native who began his collegiate career at Georgia Military College, Harvey leads the nation with 24 tackles for loss, and his 13.5 sacks rank third.

Harvey passed Houston star lineman Ed Oliver during a game against Connecticut on Nov. 17 at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium for the AAC record for tackles for loss in a season. He also is the Pirates’ record-holder.

He is 1.5 sacks shy of ECU’s single-season record of 15 (Rod Coleman/1997) and one short of the American record of 14.5 set by Louisville’s Marcus Smith in 2013.

Brown has posted consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. He stands second all-time at ECU in receiving touchdowns (24), and is fourth in receptions (186) and receiving yards (2,904).

Verity earned his first career all-conference accolade thanks to an 18-of-20 mark on field goals. He has made at least one FG in 10 out of 11 games for the Pirates (3-8), including tying his career-high with a 52-yarder against Memphis.
