2014 Rimington Trophy Candidate

2014 Outlook: Heads into his senior season as the favorite to replace 2013 Rimington Trophy award winner Bryan Stork at center. Extremely intelligent offensive lineman who has been the consummate teammate throughout his career and started at least one game each season. Expected to excel as part of an all-senior starting five on the line.

2013: Valuable reserve offensive lineman who appeared in 12 games, including a start at center at Wake Forest in place of Bryan Stork...protected Lou Groza Award-winning kicker Roberto Aguayo as a starter on placekicking unit...has five career starts under his belt, including three as a true freshman center in 2011.

2012: Continued to gain invaluable experience at the center position as a true sophomore and also contributed on the placekicking unit on special teams...played in nine games, including one start against Savannah State grading out at 75 percent after playing just the first half...posted a grade of 79 percent against Murray State.

2011: Gained invaluable experience at the center position as a true freshman...played in nine games, including three starts...one of four freshmen starters in the Champs Sports Bowl against Notre Dame...had the second-highest grade among freshmen against the Irish (73), with one missed assignment in 62 snaps...with just 38 snaps under his belt, was thrust into the starting lineup due to injury at Boston College...was remarkably effective against the Eagles, posting a season-high grade of 81 percent over 54 plays...was perfect on snaps and committed just two missed assignments while grading out at 92 percent on passing plays... earned a second consecutive start against Miami but was replaced by starter Bryan Stork in the early going...made impressive physical gains over the summer prior to his freshman season after arriving at FSU with little fanfare...earned one of six freshman academic awards at the team’s annual banquet for his work in the classroom.

PERSONAL: Sleeper offensive lineman in the class of 2011, who had a coming out party as a senior...showed to be quick on his feet and exhibited toughness in the trenches...helped St. Thomas Aquinas to a Class 5A state title in 2010, which included helping the offense rack up 5,612 yards of total offense...named to EliteScoutingServices Class 5A All-Tournament Team...ranked No. 40 on the Sun Sentinel’s Broward County Top 50 List...joined fellow teammates Bobby Hart and Rashad Greene in the 2011 FSU signing class...another one of veteran offensive line coach Jay Connolly’s products, which include former Seminole and former Green Bay Packer offensive lineman Andrew Datko and former Seminole and Buffalo Bills deep snapper Garrison Sanborn...also played third base for St. Thomas Aquinas’ baseball team...member of the 2010 SunStateFootball All-State Finals First Team Offense...born Oct. 19, 1992.
