2007: Lettered as a backup in the secondary and on special teams. He had six of his 15 tackles against Northern Arizona (11/10/07) and had five against Idaho State (9/22/07) as EWU won those two games by a combined 86-31 margin.

2006: Redshirted. He earned team defensive scout team player of the week honors once.

HS: Graduated from Mount Tahoma HS in 2006. Earned All-Area honors from the Tacoma News Tribune. He earned first team All-Narrows League Bay Division honors as a kick returner and second team accolades as a cornerback. He was coached at Mount Tahoma by former Eagle player Leon Hatch (1993). He also returned kicks as he helped lead Mount Tahoma to a 5-5 record. He scored four touchdowns on three punt returns and a kickoff, and scored on a 30-yard pass reception. He had 69 tackles, two interceptions, six passes broken up, one sack and two blocked kicks. Also played basketball at Mount Tahoma and lettered in baseball, and was his school’s male athlete of the year. His EWU teammates Gabriel Jackson (’06) and Ron Baines (’09) also attended Mount Tahoma.
