Weight: 295
Year: Senior
City/State: Aurora, Colo.
High School: Gateway/Air Force
Experience: Varsity Reserve

AT COLORADO: This Season (Sr.)—He started all 12 games at split guard, playing 596 snaps from scrimmage as he missed a few plays here and there due to injuries.  He graded out to 77.3 percent for the season (fourth among the OL starters), with 17 knockdown blocks and a team-best seven touchdown blocks clearing the way for backs to get into the end zone.  He was called for just three penalties, and tied for the team low among regulars in allowing just half a quarterback sack.  His top game grade came at Nebraska, where he recorded an 81.1 figure.  Entering fall camp, he was in the best condition of his career since leaving the Air Force was under 300 pounds for the first time at Colorado. 

2003 (Jr.)—He did not see any action but did dress for six games and practiced all season on the offensive line, mainly at guard.  He was sidetracked early in the year after suffering a knee injury that eventually required arthroscopic surgery in early September.  He joined the team in the early summer after being cleared academically once he was discharged from the Air Force.

 

2001-2002: The bulk of his stretch of his two-year obligation to serve the Air Force, he was deployed to Kyrgyzstan (Russia, wedged between and Kazakhstan and China) from January to April, working in security police detail.  Upon his return, he was stationed at Seymour Johnson AFB in North Carolina.  His two years started in May 2001 and ran through May 2003.

 

AT AIR FORCE: 2000 (Soph.)He started six games before deciding the Air Force just wasn’t for him, but was emerging as one of the Mountain West Conference’s top linemen.  He had 95 knockdown blocks for an 11.9 average in those six games, including a career-high 27 against Brigham Young.  He moved from tackle to guard in spring drills. 

1999 (Fr.-RS)—He recorded 24 knockdown blocks as a backup offensive tackle, with a high of five in back-to-back games against Utah and Brigham Young.  Prior to football practice in August, he completed Combat Survival Training, when he also completed Operations Air Force and was a member of the cadet squadron 10.

1998 (Fr.)—Redshirted; did not see any game action, but practiced the entire fall on the offensive line.

 

PREP SCHOOL—He attended Air Force Academy Prep for the 1997-98 school year, and was the team’s most valuable player on offense, playing guard on a 3-6 team.

 

HIGH SCHOOLAs a senior, he earned first-team all-state honors, when he was named first-team All-Continental League for the third straight season.   He was a second-team all-state performer as a junior.  Also a three-year starter at defensive tackle, he had 10 career sacks.  His head coach in football at Gateway was Steve Eaton; he also lettered four times in both track and wrestling, placing fifth in the heavyweight division in the state meet in the latter as a senior.

 

ACADEMICSHe is majoring in business (finance) at Colorado, and is scheduled to graduate next May.  He is interested in the banking industry as a possible career after football.

 

PERSONALHe was born February 13, 1980 in Denver. Hobbies include playing most sports, hunting and fishing.
