Elon University


*Drafted by Colorado Rockies  in 20th round during 2009 MLB Draft*

Played seven years in the minor league system with three different teams.

Coach’s Take:  Transferred to Elon after two seasons at Lenoir-Rhyne for the 2008 season … Should see plenty of action behind the plate as well as DH … Improved his defensive game this fall … A proven player who will be counted on heavily this spring both offensively and by handling the pitching staff.

At Lenoir-Rhyne: Batted .347 with 50 runs scored, five homers and 36 RBI in 52 games in 2007 … Named First Team All-South Atlantic Conference and ABCA/Rawlings All-South Region Second Team in 2007 … Hit .320 with 29 runs scored and 29 driven in as a freshman … Drove in five runs against Pfeiffer in 2006.

Prep: Two-time All-South Piedmont 3A Conference and all-state selection … Three-time All-Union County honoree … Hit .377 with five home runs and 29 RBI as a senior at Piedmont High … Named conference defensive player of the year … Ranked first in his senior class, graduating summa cum laude.
