He won regional and Big Four tournament wrestling championships in addition to state championships as a junior and senior. In football, he was chosen for all-district and all-conference honors as an end in his senior season. A member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, he had attended a national FCA summer camp as a Perry delegate.

In addition to his parents of the home, survivors include two younger brothers, Dan and David.
