Colorado State vs UNLV

Colorado State vs UNLV

2009 (Senior): Had started the season's first six contests at strong safety until a pectoral muscle injury sustained in Game 6 ended his season...Named in the season's opening week one of five permanent team captains, one of two on defense (also Nick Oppenneer)...With the schedule allowing his dad the time to make a rare appearance at a CSU game, had six tackles in resounding 23-17 win at Colorado (Sept. 6); also assisted in Elijah-Blu Smith's first-quarter interception by crushing the intended receiver, Scotty McKnight...In win vs. Weber State (Sept. 12), combined with Alex Williams to drop Walter Payton award candidate Treyvn Smith for a loss on a first-quarter carry...In assertive 35-20 win vs. Nevada (Sept. 19), his third-down blitz pressure on the passer led to a tackle for loss an eventual second-quarter punt; later, made a diving interception of an overthrown pass to set up a third-quarter touchdown after replay review confirmed the turnover...Led the team with 12 tackles in conference-opening loss at No. 19 BYU (Sept. 26), including a big stick to drop RB Bryan Kariya on a 1-yard screen pass; the dozen stops were his most in a game since he had 12 vs. TCU, 11/25/06...In bitter 31-29 loss at Idaho (Oct. 3), registered his first career sack, dropping Nathan Enderle on third down to force a punt, setting up a critical Rams TD drive...In 24-17 loss vs. Utah (Oct. 10), had seven stops, including a touchdown-saving tackle early in the fourth quarter with the Rams protecting a 17-10 lead; sustained the season-ending injury late in the game, on a goal-line play...Earned academic all-conference following the season.

2007 (Junior): After a series of hard-luck circumstances, elected to petition the MWC for a medical hardship waiver and played in 2008 as a redshirt junior...Played in just two games, both starts, and totaled 12 tackles (three solo)...Was seemingly in on every play over the season's first two games...Collected eight stops (six solo) in season opener at Colorado (Sept. 1)...Had four tackles (three solo) vs. Cal. (Sept. 1)...Having anticipated a return to his native city for months, instead endured one of the most miserable weekends of his life at Houston (Sept. 22); felt ill during pregame warmups, then was sent to a hospital, where he spent two nights after being diagnosed with low blood pressure and internal bleeding due to an ulcer...Snapped his 14-game starting streak at Houston...Returned to Colorado Sept. 25, and missed the ensuing two contests before opting for the medical waiver prior the Oct. 13 Air Force game.
