AT COLORADO: 2013 (Sr.)-He played in all 11 games on special teams, and four on defense (he missed the finale at Utah with an injury). He was in for 37 snaps on defense with two tackles, but was seven in special team points with 14 on the strength of 11 knockdown blocks, two forced fair catches, a downed punt and one tackle. He was selected as one of six team captains, by his teammates, for the season upon the players’ return for summer workouts.

2012 (Jr.)-He played in 11 games, including five starts (he missed the Arizona State game with a sprained foot); he alternated between the “mike” and “will” linebacker positions throughout the season. He finished with 46 tackles (32 solo); he had three passes broken up and three touchdown saves. He had a career-high 13 tackles (10 solo) in just 32 plays from scrimmage at Oregon, and had nine in CU’s lone win at Washington State, when he also had two for losses, a forced fumble and a pass broken up. He was also a key player on special teams, earning 14 special team points, with nine coming on knockdown blocks to go with two solo tackles, two forced fair catches and a first downfield credit that altered the return path. He had a solid spring at linebacker, his new position, as he moved there from safety in spring practice. He led the team in tackles in the four main spring scrimmages, recording nine tackles (seven solo).†

2011 (Soph.)-He saw action in six games on special teams, the first and last three of the season (no starts); he suffered a hamstring strain against Colorado State and was slow to return from the injury. He recorded two knockdown blocks on return unit duty on special teams, but did not get in on defense (he ended the year as the second-team free safety). He missed four games while fulfilling requirements to be reinstated to the team after being suspended for not adhering to obligations to be an active member of the program. †He had two tackles, including a touchdown save, in spring scrimmage action.

2010 (Fr.-RS)-He saw action in four games, including one start, the first of his career (against Hawai’i) and doing so at the nickel back position. He suffered a lower leg fracture in that game, the third one of the season; he would miss the next eight games and did not return until the Nebraska game. He played 13 snaps against the Huskers and recorded a season-high four tackles (three solo). He played 18 snaps against Hawai'i and made one tackle before suffering the injury. On the year, he recorded seven tackles (five solo) in 62 plays from scrimmage, also recording a tackle for loss, one tackle for zero gain and a third down stop. He saw his most action at Cal (29 snaps, two tackles as the nickel) after replacing Travis Sandersfeld, who was also injured and would miss several games. On special teams, he earned eight points on the strength of one tackle (it was inside-the-20), two knockdown blocks, two caused penalties, one forced fair catch and one first downfield credit, altering the return path. He had five tackles, three third down stops and two pass deflections in the three main spring scrimmages.

2009 (Fr.)-Redshirted; did not see any action but practiced in the secondary the entire fall, mainly at cornerback. The coaches weren’t positive which side of the ball he’d wind up on, but he quickly settled into the secondary in spring drills. He was a member of the 2008 recruiting class, but “gray-shirted,” or delayed his enrollment until the January 2009 spring semester.

HIGH SCHOOL-A four-year letterman in football, he was nominated for the Governor’s Bowl and the North-South Bowl as a senior and team captain for New Brunswick. He was also named first team all-White Division, all-area and all-Group III, as he had 126 tackles (88 solo), five quarterback hurries and eight passes broken up on defense, playing middle linebacker and safety for the second straight year. Offensively, he had 47 carries for 229 yards and three touchdowns. As a junior, he was named first team all-White Division, All-Area and All-Middle 6 County, as he tallied 125 tackles (97 solo), a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and a pass broken up. Offensively, he had 121 rushes for 830 yards and seven touchdowns to go along with nine receptions for 54 yards and a score. As a sophomore, playing outside linebacker and safety, he was named All-White Division, as he had 46 tackles (30 solo) on defense and rushed for 462 yards and four touchdowns on 62 carries on offense; he also had six receptions for 118 yards and two touchdowns through the air. Top game as a senior came in a 34-7 win over Perth Amboy, in which he had 16 tackles (11 solo), a quarterback hurry and a pass broken up. As a junior, he had 11 tackles (eight solo), including a tackle for a loss, a pass broken up and a forced fumble on defense in an 18-14 win over Irvington.

He was named WCTC Radio Player of the Week in a 28-0 win over Ridge, in which he had nine tackles on defense and 12 carries for 119 yards and two touchdowns. Under head coach John Quinn, New Brunswick was 5-4 his senior season, advancing to the first round of the playoffs; his junior team went 10-2 and won the Group III North II State Championship. His sophomore team went 9-2, advancing to the state semifinals; and his freshman team went 10-1, advancing to the state semifinals. He also lettered three times in baseball and was named first team All-White Division as a sophomore and junior. He lettered twice in track, competing in sprints and the high jump. He was named all-Middle 6 County as a junior, finishing as the county champion in the 55-meter dash (6.52).

ACADEMICS-He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Colorado in December 2013. He was a New Brunswick Board of Education Student Representative. He also participated in the Manytown, N.J. Human Relations Youth Leadership Forum.

He has volunteered at Elijah’s Promise Soup Kitchen, the New Jersey Community Food Bank, Rose Mountain Care Center, the Special Olympics, The Institute for Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders and Read Across America. He also served as an assistant coach for Pop Warner football and a child care aid for a preschool organization called Catholic Charities. He has taken classes to become involved with small group preaching and is a part of a multiple Christian organization. He loves baseball and is also an avid boxer for the purposes of sparring and conditioning; he does not compete because of his involvement in football.
