Name: Airon Servais

Position: Offensive Line

Year: (Redshirt) Senior

Height: 6’6”

Weight: 291

Hometown: Green Bay, Wisc.

2019 stats: Servais started all 12 games for the Orange- eight at center and four at left tackle. This was the third straight season that he started every game. He was the co-captain on offense and winner of the team’s Ben Schwartzwalder Award.

2020 projections: The offense looked a lot better when Servais moved back to left tackle. for the final games. He’ll be protecting Tommy DeVito’s back this season and looking to anchor the Syracuse offensive line.

How’d he get here?: Servais was the first Dino Babers commitment here, and he chose the Orange over Eastern Michigan, Wyoming and a few Ivy League offers.

What’d recruiting sites say?: 3 stars from everyone.

Money quote: Servais believes that proper training should incorporate both physical and mental elements.

“So being able to go faster and more fluid helped me with the algorithms to where I wouldn’t forget them. And I think it’s the same for football, too. When you know what you’re doing and you’re able to act out those movements, you can play faster both physically and mentally.”

Tweets of wonder: After last season a lot of the Orange are looking for redemption so it’s always good to see the team leaders getting fired up to get after it.

What movie would Dino Babers recommend for him?: Actor/stuntman Airon Armstrong is featured in “John Wick 3.” Dino’s picking this one to remind his team that no matter what appears on their path they must focus on the obstacle right in front of them first.

Interesting nugget o’interest: Servais, who is working on his graduate degree in Health and Exercise Science, has memorized the first 30 digits of pi.
