2011: Rebounding completely from a torn ACL last year, he'll be a starter at center midfield where he'll be counted on to control the tempo of a match…an exceptional shooter, he's accurate with both feet from anywhere outside the box…passes the ball very well and is calm under pressure…very smooth with and without the ball…could play forward but prefers to face down the field…has a knack for tallying late-game goals…receives and secures the ball confidently.

2010:  Tore his ACL in third game of the season and was out the rest of the year.

2009: First-year player dazzled with big goals and gave the Mustang offense another potent threat…tied for third with six goals and was fourth in scoring with 14 points…five of his goals were game-winners…his first collegiate goal was the lone tally in an opening-day, 1-0 upset of No. 4 Mt. Vernon Nazarene (OH)…beat 18th-ranked Concordia in dramatic fashion on 10/24/09 when his overtime score beat the Eagles…four days later vs. Westmont, his goal with just over 11 minutes left to play proved to be the difference in a 2-1 win…his fourth goal of the year, just eight minutes into play, stood up in a 1-0 victory over Holy Names in the NAIA National Championship Opening Round Match on 11/21/09…tallied the final two goals in a 3-1 win over Notre Dame (OH) in a quarter-final match at the NAIA Men's Soccer National Championship.
