He was named to the Tri-City Herald All-Area team as a first team selection as both a wide receiver and defensive back. He had 40 receptions for 602 yards (15.1 yards per catch) and five touchdowns as a senior. His average of 14.4 yards per punt return ranked second in the CBBN. He helped lead Chiawana to an 8-0 regular season record and the CBBN 4A title, but the Riverhawks lost 24-0 to Central Valley in a play-in game for the State 4A Playoffs to finish 8-1. He was also a first team All-CBBN selection as a junior in 2010 as a wide receiver, defensive back, kick returner and all-purpose player. He had 27 catches for 431 yards (16.0 yards per reception) and three TDs, and led the CBBN in punt returns at 14.6 yards per return. Chiawana finished 13-1 in 2010 and won the league title with a 6-0 record. Its undefeated season came to an end with a 13-7 loss to Ferris in the quarterfinals of the State 4A Playoffs. A four-year starter while at Pasco (2008 & 2009) and Chiawana (2010 & 2011) high schools, he was a first team All-CBBN selection as a defensive back and a second team pick as a wide receiver in 2008 as a freshman.
