2016: More comfortable behind and at the plate, the sophomore backstop enjoyed a breakout campaign and elevated himself as one of the GSAC’s top catchers…finished third on the club in doubles (15), fourth in hits (66), rbi (40), and total bases (91)…had 21 games with two or more hits, including a couple of career-high, four-hit performances…went 4-6 with two rbi at Menlo on 4/9/16 and went 4-5 with two more rbi vs. Biola in the GSAC Tournament championship game on 5/12/16…drove in two or more runs in a game 11 times, highlighted by a career-best, four-rbi outing against Bethesda on 4/26/16…that game featured a three-run homer off his bat…hit a team-high six sacrifice flies…had a season-high 12 putouts vs. Arizona Christian on 3/23/16…threw out nine baserunners.

2015: Earned the job behind the plate out of training camp and did a fine job calling games, keeping runners honest, and producing at the plate…made 51 starts and threw out 13 baserunners…had a season-high 13 putouts vs. William Jessup in the nightcap of a doubleheader on 4/11/15…recorded nine multi-hit outings, including four three-hit efforts…notched his first collegiate hit vs. Concordia on 1/23/15 and drove in his first run a day later…went 7-9 with four rbi in a three-game series against Arizona Christian in mid-February…drove in two or more runs in a game six times, highlighted by a season-best three rbi against William Jessup on 2/21/15…produced a team-high 13 sacrifices, two of those coming against Northwestern Ohio in a NAIA National Championship Opening Round game on 5/13/15.
