2011-12: One of the premier perimeter two-guards in the GSAC, he's a threat every time he loads up behind the arc…will start for the third year in a row…drains three-balls in bunches…with a repeat of last year's long range success, he should climb into the top five all-time in three-point field goals made…continued work on his mid-range and dribble-drive games should pay off by keeping defenses honest…becoming more adept at playing man defense…makes good decisions at both end of the court…expected to take on more of a leadership role.

2010-11:  Developed a more well-rounded offensive game as a sophomore but still made his living from behind the arc where he led the GSAC for the first time and the team for the second season in a row with 77 trifectas…that was the eighth-best, single-season mark in program history…is now No. 8 on the all-time list with 146…set a career-high with seven treys vs. Bethany on 11/6/10 and then equaled that three days later vs. West Coast Baptist…had nine games with at least four three-pointers…hit for 20 points or more five times, including a career-high 25 vs. Bethany while also handing out a career-best seven assists…finished second on the team in scoring…posted 20 double-figure performances…paced the club with 45 steals, pilfering a season-high four against both Concordia (12/11/10) and Holy Names (12/14/10).

2009-10: Living up to his reputation as a long-range bomber, the freshman sharpshooter gave the squad a lethal outside threat…came out blazing in his first five games, hitting 20 shots from behind the arc…led the club in trifectas and finished third in the GSAC…drained a season-best six treys vs. San Diego Christian on 12/12/09 en route to a season-high 20 points…scored in double figures 13 times, including the first five games of his college career…paced the club in thefts, highlighted by a pair of four-steal outings.

Grace Christian HS: A four-year starter for Coach Chuck Boerger, he led the Grizzlies to a quartet of winning seasons and two post-season appearances…the most prolific scorer in school history, he averaged in double figures in each of his four prep campaigns and finished with 1720 points…averaged a career-high 22.6ppg in his senior year (2008-09), shot 80% from the line, and was voted Alaska State Division 3A Player of the Year in addition to first-team, all-state and Southcentral League MVP honors…the previous year, he was a first-team, all-state choice, first-team all-league, and voted to the state all-tournament team after leading the Grizzlies (19-8) to the conference championship for the second year in a row and a sixth-place showing in the state tourney…averaged 15.8ppg and 4.3rpg…as a sophomore, he put up 17ppg as the squad went 23-3, captured the conference championship, and finished third at the state tournament…in 2005-06, he made more than a successful transition to prep ball, scoring at a 12.4ppg clip on a 16-9 squad.
