He recorded 12 tackles for loss, four sacks and an interception, helping Geneseo to an IHSA Class 4A playoff appearance. His efforts earned him Northern Illinois Big 12 all-conference honors as well as All-Metro honors for The Dispatch and The Rock Island Argus.

He was an IHSFCA Academic All-State selection and academic all-conference in both football and baseball. The National Honor Society member is an Illinois State Scholar.
