A standout student, he was named the 1998 Male Student Athlete of the Year at Centenary and made the Dean's List twice. That same year, his senior season, he won the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Slam Dunk Contest. Shortly thereafter, in 1999, he was invited to the Harlem Globetrotters training camp.
