As a UA senior, the Tucson High grad was a first-team All-American who won the WAC singles and doubles championships. He also reached the NCAA semifinals, helping the UA finish fifth overall. He helped the UA win 16 dual meets, a school record. He was ranked No. 17 in the USTA singles rankings and No. 9 in doubles as a college senior, and played at Wimbledon a week after the NCAA finals.
