He went on to become a nationally-recognized collegiate and semi-pro basketball player (as there was no NBA at the time), alongside his best friend and fellow Class of 2010 inductee, Ralph "Ty" Hertzler. As a semi-pro basketball player, he won awards such as Best Forward East of the Mississippi River.
