Traynor, a fifth-year senior from Lake Forest, Il., served as a team captain the last two years. He helped lead Dartmouth to consecutive nine win seasons for the first time in 138 seasons of Big Green football.

A three-time Division I All-New England and three-time unanimous Ivy League First Team selection, Traynor wrapped up a terrific Dartmouth career with 75 tackles in 2019, third most in the circuit, 4.5 of which went for a loss including an assisted sack. The 6-0, 230-pound linebacker also returned a pair of interceptions for a league-high 93 yards (one a 55-yard pick-six) plus recovered two fumbles, returning one 17 yards for another touchdown. He finished his Big Green career 11th all-time with 270 tackles, 16 going for a loss with 1.5 sacks to his credit.
