AT COLORADO: This Season (Jr.)—Enters the fall tied atop the depth chart at quarterback, as the battle for starting honors is expected to go well into August drills.  In the three main spring scrimmages, he completed 20-of-45 passes for 283 yards, with no interceptions and one touchdown (a 71-yard pass to Patrick Williams, the longest play in all three sessions).

 

2005 (Soph.)—He saw action in just one regular season game, basically mop-up duty against Texas A&M where he took just four snaps, one being a kneel-down to end the game.  However, with starter Joel Klatt out of Champs Sports Bowl and his replacement, James Cox, struggling, he was brought in with 9:06 remaining in the game and engineered CU’s lone touchdown drive of the night.  He completed all three passes on that first possession, the last a 2-yard touchdown throw to tight end Quinn Sypniewski, rallying CU to within 13-10 at the time.  He finished the game 7-of-12 for 81 yards with the one score (and no interceptions).  He missed all of spring practice after undergoing surgery for an injured wrist, which he suffered in the weight room spotting for a teammate, but was back to 100 percent come August drills. 

 

2004 (Fr.-RS)—He saw action in one game, as he got in briefly at the end of the Oklahoma State game.  He completed his only pass for 10 yards.  He had a very good spring, completing 18 of 28 passes for 175 yards in the three main scrimmages, including a TD pass to Joe Klopfenstein in the Black & Gold game (and had just one interception).

 

2003 (Fr.)—Redshirted; he practiced all season at quarterback.  He arrived in Boulder in June to participate in voluntary 7-on-7 workouts with the offense.

 

HIGH SCHOOL—As a senior, he earned PrepStar All-American honors, as was also named to its All-West team.  He garnered SuperPrep All-Far-West honors as the 48th overall player and No. 8 quarterback, while Prep Football Report named him to its All-West team as the No. 39 player in California and No. 10 quarterback.  Rivals.com tabbed him the No. 21 quarterback in the nation (and the No. 69 player in California) on his way to earning All-CIF (southern section) and All-South Coast League accolades.  He was an honorable mention all-league performer during both his junior and sophomore seasons.  As a senior, he completed 160-of-265 passes (60 percent) for 2,006 yards and 16 touchdowns (he had 11 interceptions).  He also rushed 60 times for 225 yards and three scores with a long run of 47 yards, and caught one pass for an 8-yard touchdown on a trick play.  As a junior, he completed 118-of-205 passes for 1,500 yards and 10 touchdowns, with just five interceptions.  He also ran for 120 yards and three touchdowns.  In limited action as a sophomore, he completed 56 percent of his passes (70-of-125), throwing for 900 yards and eight scores, adding 100 yards on the ground and one TD.  Top career games all came during his senior year, including a 41-19 win over Laguna Hills when he passed for 280 yards and four touchdowns on 17-of-22 attempts.  Just two weeks later in a 35-14 win against Aliso Niguel, he completed 18-of-30 passes for 336 yards and three touchdowns.  In his team’s final game of the season, a first round playoff loss to Claremont, he completed 13-of-21 passes for 200 yards and three scores.   Trabuco Hills was 6-5 his senior year (losing to Claremont in the first round), 5-6 his junior year (losing in the first round) and 2-8 his sophomore season under coach Bill Crow.  He lettered three times in basketball (averaging 15 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two blocks per game as a senior), once in track (high jump; a career best of 6-0) and played baseball as a freshman.  

 

ACADEMICS—He is majoring in sociology at Colorado.  He was named Trabuco Hills’ Student of the Month during November 2002, and is also a member of his school’s medical science program.

 

PERSONAL—He was born September 20, 1984 in Cleveland, Ohio.   His hobbies include bass fishing, playing basketball, playing video games and surfing.  A grandfather (Ralph) played offensive line at Bowling Green and for the Baltimore Colts during the 1960s; father (Mark) was a linebacker for Bowling Green from 1980-84; and an uncle (Scott White) wrestled at Kent State.
