Received a sixth year of eligibility from NCAA after pitching just one-third of an inning in his first two collegiate seasons due to injury.2013:
Fought through early-season injuries to become one of the staff’s most trusted arms out of the bullpen down the stretch ... appeared in 18 games, good for fourth on team ... 2.45 ERA was lowest on staff (regardless of innings pitched) ... did not surrender any runs in 12 of his 18 appearances and allowed multiple earned runs only once (March 10 at Furman) ... struck out the only batter he faced to get Appalachian State out of a jam in the eighth inning of 6-3 win over No. 8 NC State in season opener (Feb. 15) ... allowed no runs and just one hit over first four appearances of the season (3.1 IP) ... struggled with control a bit during the middle of the campaign, issuing seven walks and hitting a batter during a nine-appearance span from March 10-April 30 ... was perhaps the Mountaineers’ most dominant reliever down the stretch, allowing only three earned runs over 15.1 innings in May (five appearances) ... turned in a scoreless inning in series-clinching victory at Gonzaga (May 12) ... worked three scoreless innings while striking out three at No. 2 North Carolina (May 14) ... turned in the finest performance of his career when he came out of the bullpen to work seven innings and earn the win in Appalachian State’s 15-4 Southern Conference Tournament win over regular-season champion Western Carolina (May 24) ... allowed just one earned run, did not issue a walk and scattered seven hits over his career-high seven innings of relief against WCU.2012:
Served as one of the primary setup men for record-setting closer Nathan Hyatt ... made 29 appearances (all out of the bullpen), good for second on the team and a tie for 12th in the Southern Conference ... allowed just one home run and seven extra-base hits in 29.0 IP ... right-hander was particularly tough against left-handed hitters, who managed just six hits in 23 at-bats against him (.261 avg.) ... campaign was a tale of two seasons ... allowed just one earned run over first 11 appearances of the season, including a stretch of 10-straight scoreless outings that dropped ERA to 0.61 on March 17 ... however, he surrendered at least one earned run in eight of his final 18 appearances of the season and ERA ballooned to 5.28 at the end of the campaign ... closed the season on a high note, working 1.1 perfect innings in season-ending loss to No. 23 Oklahoma (June 4).2011:
Became an ultra-valuable arm out of the bullpen down the stretch … allowed only one run and four hits in 12 appearances on the season (13.0 innings), good for a minuscule 0.69 ERA and .100 opponents’ batting average … three of the four hits and the only run he surrendered came in one appearance, a two-inning stint versus Western Carolina (May 9) … appeared in just six games over the first three months of the season but did not allow a hit during that stretch, which spanned 5.2 innings … after allowing a run on three hits vs. WCU, closed the season with five-straight scoreless outings … was especially impressive against Georgia Southern (May 20), allowing just one hit and striking out two over 2.1 shutout innings to earn the first win of his career … retired the only batter he faced at the SoCon Tournament (May 25 vs. Samford).2010:
Did not appear in any games as he continued to rehabilitate from injury.2009:
Appeared in just one game, tossing one-third of an inning at Wake Forest (Feb. 24) ... missed the rest of the season with a shoulder injury and received a medical redshirt.High School:
