2016: Conference USA Academic Honor Roll; Had posted two saves and worked his way into three early starts as a true freshman, well on his way to a solid debut season of Division I baseball, before being sidelined for the remainder of the year... Posted a 1.32 ERA and held opposing hitters to a .180 batting average in 13.2 innings... Was pitching so well that he was tabbed to start the big home game against No. 7 ranked TCU, but ended up leaving the contest after facing one batter in the top of the third inning with Rice leading 1-0... Made collegiate debut in relief in the final game of the opening series of the season against eventual College World Series runner-up Arizona, and was almost immediately named to start the very next game against state foe Dallas Baptist two days later... Scattered three hits and a walk while striking out five in 4.2 innings against heavy-hitting DBU, earning a follow-up midweek start at longtime nemesis Sam Houston State... Allowed just two runs, both unearned, in 5.2 frames on the road at Sam Houston to lower his ERA to an austere 0.87 in a combined 10.1 innings... Pitched once in each of the two following weekend series, where he earned saves in outings vs. UCF (March 6) and No. 16 ranked East Carolina (March 13)... Final appearance of the season was then against TCU (March 15)... Proved to be particularly strong when runners were on base (.120 opponents' average) and when two outs were already recorded in the inning (.154).
