High School: Saint Francis

College or University: University of Arizona

Football Honors:

  • 1st Team All League
  • Honorable Mention All Bay Area

As freshman I started the season as a linebacker. In midseason I was moved to defensive tackle and I became a starter.

In my sophomore year I played on the Junior Varsity team on special teams and I was a starter as a defensive tackle. The highlight that year was when I was called up to the varsity in the CCS playoffs when St. Francis was the Division 1 CCS champ. I was awarded the most valuable defensive lineman award by the coaches.

In my junior year, I was on the varsity as a defensive tackle. While I did not start, I got significant playing time. St. Francis won the WCAL championship but lost in the CCS semifinals to Hollister.

In my senior year I was a starter as a defensive tackle. Shortly after the season started I was a nose guard. I was voted All-WCAL First Team as a defensive nose guard. I was voted an Honorable Mention All Bay Area as a defensive lineman by the San Francisco Chronicle.

I was accepted at the University of Arizona, Arizona State, Northern Arizona University, Long Beach State, and UCLA. I will be attending the University of Arizona in Tuscon. I will major either in English, History, or Criminal Justice. My current career choice is criminal justice.

Thank you very much for this honor.
