2011: The junior transfer steps into a starting role with the expectation of being a durable workhorse…one of the keys to the rotation, he holds great promise for both this and next year…very athletic, he fields his position well…a fastball, change, and excellent breaking ball make up his repertoire.

College of the Canyons: Spent two years with the Cougars who won the Western States Conference title in his freshman year (2009)…used primarily in relief, he went 0-2 during that season but struck out 20 in 23 innings of work…made eight starts as a sophomore when he finished 3-3 and struck out 37 over 48 innings.

West Ranch HS: A two-year starter for Coach Casey Burrill and the Wildcats, he split his time in the outfield and on the mound as a junior but spent all of his senior year on the hill…hit .242 in 2007 and went 3-5 with a 5.20 ERA…limited Canyon to four hits and struck out six over five innings of work for his second win of the season…a year later, he went 4-4 with a sparkling 2.36 ERA…struck out a career-high 12 batters en route to a three-hit shutout of Golden Valley and followed that with a two-hit blanking of Canyon in his next start…named second-team All-Foothill League following his final prep campaign.
