Selvie had a record night in the season opener against Elon. Setting a new USF single game record with six tackles for a loss, and tied the USF record with four sacks in the same game. Selvie has had at least one sack in every game played this season.

Last season Selvie had a break out year as a freshman, being named a Sporting News Freshman All-American, and to the BIG EAST All-freshmen team, after finishing with 5.5 sacks and 15 TFL.
