2011 (Redshirt Junior): Made 13 relief appearances on the season tossing 16.1 innings ... Struck out 22 against 15 walks ... Struggled with control early in the season after returning from off-season surgery, walking seven with four wild pitches in his first five appearances ... Only one of his seven hits allowed on the season went for extra bases ... Recorded at least one strikeout in all but three of his seasonal appearances ... WCU won six of the 13 games he pitched in ... His final two appearances of the season were his best, tossing 2.2 innings of one-run, one-hit relief in a 16-inning game against Furman (5/13) before keeping top-seeded Elon (5/25) off the board through a career-long 4.1 innings with a career-high six strikeouts in the epic 20-inning game against the Phoenix in the conference championship event.
