A stalwart on the mound for the Falcons, the side-arm hurler was a first-team All-Pacific League pick after going 7-6 with a 1.96 ERA.

Rio Hondo League MVP and All-CIF Division IV first-team selection put himself on the map as a shutdown closer and dominant hitter. Struck out 15 in 14 innings, tallying a 2-0 record with six saves and a 0.50 ERA. At the dish, hit .355 (22 for 62) with 14 RBI, 14 runs and six stolen bases.
