AT COLORADO: 2006 (Sr.)—Had not seen action in the first three games of the season, but when three-year starter Mark Fenton went down with a broken leg early in the Georgia game, he was pressed into action and responded well. He would play the last 50 snaps of that game and then start the next seven, seeing action for 453 offensive plays for the season. Though the backup long snapper, he was never called upon in that role. In the postseason, he was invited to play in the Hula Bowl All-Star game. He practiced at both center and guard in the spring, and actually had entered the fall listed second at left guard on the depth chart.
2005 (Jr.)—He saw action in nine games (no starts, all regular season), appearing in eight games as a backup center and one other on the FG/PAT unit on special teams (four snaps). In 62 snaps from scrimmage, he graded out with a 2.42 average on a 0-4 point per play system and had two knockdown blocks. He enrolled at CU in time for the spring semester and thus participated in spring drills.
JUNIOR COLLEGE (Fr./Soph., 2003-04)—He lettered twice at center at the City College of San Francisco. A first-team all-NorCal Conference performer during those years under coach George Rush, he started all 24 games and helped lead the Rams to a combined two-year record of 23-1. He only allowed one quarterback sack as a sophomore as CCSF went on to claim its fifth-straight conference championship with an 11-1 record. In 2003, CCSF was crowned conference and
HIGH SCHOOL—He lettered three years in football playing on the offensive line and at defensive tackle. Very impressively, he never gave up a sack during his entire three-year varsity career, as he was a team captain in 2001 and 2002, while also being named the team’s outstanding lineman both seasons. As a senior, he garnered first-team all-metro and all-city accolades to help pave the way for
