2011: The club's leading scorer over the past two years is expecting to close out his career with a big campaign…undoubtedly, one of the top offensive threats in the conference, a return to his sophomore output will boost the Mustangs back into contention for a conference title…a natural attacker in the midfield or at forward, he scores in bunches…has dynamic skills and a big foot and has great success when working with teammates…reducing turnovers and playing selflessly will make opponents pay for their mistakes.

2010: Although he didn't post the prolific numbers of the previous campaign, he still led the squad in scoring (17 points) for the second consecutive year…tallied a team-high six goals, including a pair of game-winners…recorded his fourth career hat trick on 10/5/10 when he almost single-handedly beat Hope International 3-1…scored the only goal of the match in a shutout of San Diego Christian four days later…assisted on five goals, three of those coming in a 7-1 thumping of Simpson on 9/18/10…named an NCCAA Scholar-Athlete.

2009: Propelled by an explosive start, the "super soph" finished as the club's leading scorer (31 points) and developed into one of the GSAC's top offensive threats…his point total was the fourth-highest in the GSAC and his team-leading 14 goals tied for the conference's second-best mark…10 of those goals came in the first month of the campaign, highlighted by a trio of three-goal outbursts…tallied a career-high seven points (three goals, one assist) vs. Southwestern of Arizona on 9/4/09 and equaled that in the GSAC opener vs. Pt. Loma Nazarene on 9/26/09…four days later, he produced another hat trick against Fresno Pacific…the rest of his goals were game-winners, including one that was the only tally in a GSAC Tournament first-round blanking of California Baptist on 11/4/09…his final goal of the year gave the Mustangs a 2-0 lead (a 3-1 win) over Biola in the GSAC Tournament title game…voted to the All-GSAC squad and was an NCCAA second-team All-American. 

2008: The first-year player made only two starts but saw quality action in every match…had two goals and three assists…scored his first collegiate goal in his second game, a 9-0 win over William Jessup…his only other goal of the season tied the match vs. Concordia on 10/4/08, one eventually won by the Mustangs in overtime…his first assist came against Dominican on 9/13/08. 

Hart High School: Made his only year playing for the Indians and Coach Robert Ramirez a memorable one, leading the club to a Foothill League championship and scoring a team-high 38 points…although he was the sweeper, he developed into the club's top offensive threat, tallying 17 goals and notching four assists en route to 2008 Foothill League Player of the Year honors.
