He not only played for the 4"D" Stars but was also apart of an AAU national championship team in 2003, with the South Coast Stars[8]. They were led by two future NBA players DeMar Derozan and Brandon Jennings. He then moved to Henderson, Nevada where again played for another AAU National Championship team in 2004, Poly Nation[9].

After transferring from Snow College to Hartnell College to play for Coach Andrew Vasher, he cut the season short to serve a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from 2011-2013 in Alaska.
