Still holds all of Wyoming’s diving records, with the exception of platform events, which were not contested when he competed. A dominant diver, he won three WAC championships from 1983-85.

During his junior year, he won all-America honors by placing 10th on the 3-meter springboard and 23rd on the one-meter springboard. He single-handedly led UW to a 29th place finish at the 1984 NCAA championships. An injury suffered at the 1985 WAC Championships prevented him from competing in the 1985 NCAA Diving Championships. He also served as Wyoming’s diving coach from 1985-1987 and coached three divers to the NCAA championships.
