His meteoric rise for the Black Hawks in his native Las Vegas earned him a spot with the High School All-Americans squad in 2016 and eventually a tour with the USA Falcons development squad in South America.
He was selected as a "Next Olympic Hopeful" by the U.S Olympic Committee in 2018 and earned an invitation to the Olympic Training Center to finally pursue a professional rugby career.
In 2018 he signed a deal with San Diego Legion and started all 8 games in 2018 at only 19 years old.
He went on to make 23 appearances for the side, scoring 15 points before he was snatched by rivals Nola Gold on a two-year deal in June 2020.
