1991 Media Guide: Solid reserve player who will play behind Scottie Graham and Raymont Harris … powerful inside runner who has always performed well when called upon … saw action in ten games last year and played a total of 35 minutes … top game was 20 yards on four carries in the opener against Texas Tech … will graduate at the end of winter quarter.

1990 Media Guide: Locked up the No. 2 fullback spot with a very impressive spring showing … really impressed the coaching staff in the spring with his improvement as a runner … could start in the event that regular fullback Scottie Graham would move to tailback … has become a punishing ball carrier … the biggest of the OSU running backs.

1989: Played in 10 games, mostly as a backup to Graham … saw his most extensive playing time against Wisconsin and Michigan, recording 10 and 11 minute stints, respectively … carried the ball 15 times for 57 yards.

1988: Began the season at linebacker, but was switched to fullback at the end of the year … did not record any playing time.

1988 Media Guide: A big, fast fullback prospect with impressive credentials … sat out last year.

1987: Did not play – ineligible.

HIGH SCHOOL: All-New Jersey fullback selection as a senior … team captain as a senior, leading Highland Park to the state championship … scored 13 touchdowns his senior year … rushed for 125 yards, including a 35-yard touchdown in the championship game … also a three-letter winner in track, competing in the shot put and running on the sprint relay team.

Personal: Ambition is to graduate … hobbies are biking and basketball … favorite foods are shrimp fried rice and spaghetti.
