His Blistering.504 batting average, 75 RBIís and 19 home runs helped the Braves finish second in the USAFE baseball playoffs. He was also something of a football star, although he was the reserve quarterback behind Mike Davis.

Sandy Sandlin, coach of the Bears praised him for his inspired, yet cool play. At the end of the football season he turned to still another sport: basketball.

All his friends wish him success in San Fransisco.
