He was also a State Open two mile Champion. He anchored Howard H.S. to a third place finish in the distance medley relay at the Penn Relays Championship of America race.
He ran as a collegiate at Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He was elected to the Cross Country 50’s All-Decade Team.
