2011: Mentally tough, very confident transfer will step into a starting role in center field and ignite the offense at the top of the order…a vocal leader in the outfield, he goes after the ball aggressively…displays tenacity at the plate…narrows the strike zone on pitchers, drawing a lot of walks and getting his pitch to hit…hits to all fields and bunts precisely…with his speed, he should steal a lot of bases.

Meridian HS: Played two varsity seasons for the Warriors, his junior year at second base and his senior campaign at shortstop…hit .456 in his final season and was the team's MVP…a first-team All-5A Southern Idaho Conference choice…won the school's Hall of Fame award.
