How’d he get to The Blue™?

I’m going to assume by car? Because Horseshoe Bend is only like a half hour away. Athletically? As a walk-on. Spoilers about that a few sections below!


He seems to exude the same quiet intensity as General Zod, aka Michael Shannon.


General Zod

Yeah. Fully committing to that.

Career Highlights

At the college level, no stats collected so far.

However, he seems to have had an especially great time on defense in high school!

2023 Prospectus

As a walk-on, he has far less guaranteed to him. However, there’s a decently long list of homegrown guys that ended up having incredible Bronco careers after walking on. So, it’s never a good idea to sleep on someone that could be the next Matt Paradis or Leighton Vander Esch. That said, he’s still very young. With a redshirt year under his belt, he has some experience with the playbook as well as a college weight room. Those are both going to be very important things if an opportunity arises for him to demonstrate his capability in 2023.

Is he on Twitter?

He is. That’s how I knew he was a walk on. That’s also how I knew that he is missing an appendix…

Completely (not) made up fact

Keegan and I are both going to be in the Sorely Disappointed Club if we find out someday that having an appendix gives you superpowers…
