Last season he was a Big East Academic All-Star and named to the athletic director's honor roll during the fall and spring semesters.
During his sophomore year, he placed fourth in the 400 I.M. (3:58.91) in the Big East, placed eighth in the 200 butterfly and was Syracuse's second best swimmer in the breaststroke.
