I grew up playing Aussie Rules football on the Gold Coast. I started my undergraduate at Griffith University then transferred to Louisiana Tech University on a full scholarship to play Football with two years of eligibility. I was an Honor Roll student and played in two Bowl Championships. I was invited to Daytona Beach to compete in the Tropical Bowl and earned runner-up Special Teams MVP. I finished my career with the 3rd all-time punt average at LA Tech.
