2008 Season

Second team All-Missouri Valley at left tackle.

2007 Season

Started all 13 games at tight end … used as more of a blocker than a downfield receiver … hauled in five passes for 38 yards and a touchdown on the season … caught his first collegiate pass for seven yards in UNI's 24-13 win at Iowa State (9/8) … caught a career-high two passes for 20 yards in a 42-3 win at Western Illinois (10/20) … nabbed his first collegiate touchdown pass on a four-yard toss from Eric Sanders in the fourth quarter of UNI's FCS playoff quarterfinal game against Delaware (12/1).

2006 Season

Saw action in 10 games … drew two starting assignments against Indiana State (10/14) and against Western Illinois (10/28) when the Panthers began the game with a two-tight end alignment … did not record a statistic as he was used mostly in a blocking role.

2005 Season
