As a senior he contributed 62 tackles, 7 interceptions and 6 pass break-ups. He also snagged 50 passes for 565 yards and 5 touchdowns. He also averaged 30 yards a punt because they couldn’t have him slacking during special teams. He was named 2023 IHSFCA All-State, and the Defensive Player of the Year for his conference. Also named honorable mention All-State in basketball as a junior after averaging 21 points and 4 rebounds a game.
