2016: One of the club’s most versatile players, he’ll vie for a starting spot in the outfield where he found a part-time home last year…makes his plate appearances count and possesses raw power…consistency is a key to his game…may also pitch in middle relief…displays fine movement on his pitches and is always around the plate.

2015: Earned more playing time and produced enough to start 21 times, mostly in the outfield…established career-bests in every offensive category and just missed hitting .300 for the season…had three multi-hit games, including a career-best 4-4 performance, featuring a couple of doubles, against Simpson on 2/11/15…on 3/17/15, he went 3-3 with a double and a rbi against the University of Antelope Valley…a plus defender, he was spotless in 31 chances.

2014: Played in 15 games in his freshman season, making four starts…his first collegiate hit came as a pinch-hitter vs. La Sierra in the first game of a doubleheader on 4/1/14 when his single drove in a run…he doubled in a run, too, in the nightcap of that twinbill…made his first start of the year vs. Vanguard on 4/4/14 and went 2-5.

Ukiah HS: Started two varsity seasons for the Wildcats, splitting time between shortstop and third base…led the North Bay League in batting his senior year and was named all-league.
