High School

Named to the Los Angeles Times Southern Section top defensive backs list (No. 14 on the 22-man roster), he developed a reputation as a playmaker on both sides of the ball. As a senior, he was a first-team all-Valley and the Santa Clara Valley League most valuable player when he had 45 receptions for 800 yards and nine touchdowns and 10 carries for 118 yards and another score on offense, with 25 tackles and eight interceptions, returning one the length of the field for a touchdown, playing cornerback on defense. He also returned a kickoff for a touchdown. As a junior, when he was a first-team all-league performer on both offense and defense, he had 36 catches for 500 yards and eight touchdowns, with seven interceptions on the other side of the ball. He started at cornerback as a sophomore (did not play offense), the only underclassman on the varsity team that season. Top career games: as a senior against Canyon, he had a 99-yard interception return for a touchdown; as a junior in a win against Southfield, he made three interceptions; and as a sophomore in a win over Ayala, he had two interceptions. Under coach Greg Gano, Los Alton was 8-4 his senior year, advancing to the second round of the playoffs, 7-4 his junior season, and 14-0 his sophomore year, winning the CIF Championship. He also lettered four times in basketball (point guard), as he made the varsity as a freshman. An all-league performer as a junior and senior, he averaged just under 25 points per game as a senior and exited as Los Altos' all-time leading scorer and assist man.
