His team finished the season with a 13-1 record and ranked No. 2 in the state. He won region six as a senior with a 10-0 record and was member of a defense that allowed only six points per game (best in Class AAAA) and pitched seven shutouts, and was credited with 56 tackles, three interceptions and 11 pass break ups during senior season.
