Van Fleet had an impressive first year wearing the blue & gold. He led NCAA DIII and the ECFC with 22 pass break-ups. He also led the team with 51 total tackles (44 solo) and recorded an interception. For his solid play he was named a 1st team All-ECFC defensive back. He was also named honorable mention as a return specialist. He was accumulated 196 yards on nine punt return attempts including a 75-yard return for a touchdown vs. Maritime.

Alfred State finished the 2019 season 4-6, a three win improvement from the 2018 year.
