AT COLORADO: 2010 (Jr./Sr.)-He saw action in the first five games, all on special teams; he earned one special team point with a knockdown block on return unit duty. A reserve defensive back, he was a solid contributor at both cornerback and safety for the scout team and thus was the recipient of the team's Special Teams Scout Award for the season (he won the single game honor for the week leading up to CU's win over Hawai'i). He planned on graduating after four years and this chose not to return for a fifth-year, even though he had the option to do so.

2008 (Fr.-RS)-He did not see any action, but did dress for nine games, including two on the road.  He was the scout team defense player of the week for the Eastern Washington game.  He had seven tackles (three solo, one third down stop) and a pass broken up in the three main spring scrums.

2007 (Fr.)-Redshirted; he joined the team as a walk-on on the first day of classes.

HIGH SCHOOL-A team captain as a senior, when he earned second-team All-Conference honors at cornerback.  An All-Star selection for the county game, he was in on 69 tackles (45 solo, five for losses with one-and-a-half quarterback sacks); he also made three interceptions, had four pass deflections and forced three fumbles (recovering two).  As a junior, he was in on 24 tackles (14 solo, one for a loss), with one PBU and a fumble recovery.  A two-year starter, Laguna Niguel was 10-3 his senior year and 6-5 his junior season under coach Mike Jacot.  He also lettered once in wrestling (171-lb. class).

ACADEMICS-He is a Communication major at Colorado, and is on schedule to graduate in May 2011. He was an Honor Roll student as a junior and senior in high school.

PERSONAL-He was born December 15, 1988 in Laguna Hills, Calif.  His hobbies include playing the drums, music, snowboarding, movies, art, going to the beach and skateboarding (which he says is his primary mode of transportation).  He also enjoys fishing, and caught a 145-lb. tuna in Cabo over spring break ('10).
