He has been a stud on Dangerzone since starting at Hopkins, joining the O-line his freshman year as a dangerous cutter and hybrid player, helping to bring the team to regionals. His sophomore year, as one of the initiating cutters and a huck/hammer threat, he helped bring the team to finals of EQs, OCI, and conferences, as well as semifinals of ACO and a 4th-place finish at Atlantic Coast Regionals, Hopkins’ best-ever finish. In his final year and first full season post-COVID, he led the team back to regionals in both semesters as an assist-machine and D-generator for the O-line. Throughout this time, he also played club ultimate with Citywide, Phantom, and Phoenix, developing into a deeply skilled and dynamic handler with every throw from both arms.
