2015: Second-year player is exceptional at either one of the middle infield spots, positioning himself well to make both tough and easy plays…has good hands and fine lateral range…turns double plays well…is a tough out at the plate…teammates enjoy playing with this hard-nosed competitor with a bright future.

2014: Contributed primarily in a utility role in his first collegiate season, pinch-hitting and playing all the infield positions except first base…his best overall game came against La Sierra on 4/1/14 when he went 2-2 with a couple of rbi…scored a run against Simpson in his first collegiate game on 1/18/14 and followed that with another hit in the nightcap to go along with two putouts and two assists from shortstop.

King HS:  Played two years of varsity ball for the Wolves, leading them to a pair of postseason appearances…started at third base in his junior year when the club finished second in the Big 8 League and lost in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs…split time between third and shortstop as a senior and earned all-league second-team honors as the Wolves made it to the first round of the playoffs again…during his two years on the squad, he hit a combined .325, posted a .417 on-base percentage, and scored 31 runs.
