One of the greatest infielders and hitters in Arizona Softball history, he was three times chosen on the All-American team - once as a second baseman and twice as a third baseman. He competed in six national tournaments, playing for Phoenix championship teams in Cleveland, Detroit, St. Louis, Oklahoma City and Phoenix. His 12-year career began at age 14 and resulted in a lifetime batting average of .335 and selection on all-state and all-region teams eight times. He also was a perennial leader in doubles, triples and home runs while starring for Phoenix major teams, including Funk Jewels, O. S. Stapley, Farm Fresh Markets, Denton Tires and Clark Smith Autos.
