The 24-year-old recorded 49 defensive tackles, five quarterback sacks, three interceptions all while recovering four fumbles. He also contributed on special teams, making nine tackles this season. He recorded a personal-best eight defensive tackles on two separate occasions.

He led the CIS Canada West conference with 55 tackles while also adding four sacks and an interception in 2012. The Brampton, ON native helped anchor a Calgary Dinos' defence that topped the Canada West conference in every category on his way to being named the Canada West defensive player of the year in 2012.
