High School: had 58 tackles, including 30 solos, as a senior ... 13 of his tackles were behind the line of scrimmage to go along with seven sacks, nine pass break-ups and one forced fumble ... the first Lakota West player to be elected captain as a junior and senior ... all-Southwest Ohio as a senior ... first-team all-conference and second-team all-district as a junior
