In addition, I have played for the West Coast Starz travel team since 2017 and the Arizona Outlaws field and box travel teams since 2014. As a Middie and FOGO, I have always been a leader for the teams I have played for in scoring and assists.

The following are teams that I played for that won tournament championships:

In addition, I was selected to All Star Team for the US Box National in San Jose, CA in August of 2017 and the All Star Team at the Arizona State Championship - Cactus Cup in 2018.

In the fall of 2018 at Avon Old Farms boarding school, I started playing freshman football as a running back and outside linebacker. In addition, I played on special teams. I was selected as team captain and also received the season ending MVP award. In the Spring at Avon Old Farms I played JV Lacrosse and at season's end won MVP 2019.

In middle school I was on the honor roll, student council, and received the MVP award for our school football team, and at year's end won The Athlete of the Year Award. I actively participated in the charitable events sponsored by St Michael's middle school.
