2016: Ready to jump back in behind the plate as the incumbent catcher with a strong desire to improve his all-around game…improved strength gives him more authority with his arm and bat…more active in directing the defense, he has good rapport with the pitching staff…receives the ball well and has an accurate arm…hits to all fields and has power…has developed into a clutch hitter…willing to give himself up to advance teammates.

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.

2014: Redshirted
