In 1986 he was ranked 7th in the 400M and 12th in the Long Jump by East Coast Track and Field Magazine. At the 1987 MEAC Indoor Championships he achieved the record for the athlete scoring the most individual points in the championship’s history and was voted MVP of the meet. In 1988 he set a new MEAC indoor long Jump record and was voted University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s Athlete of The Year.
