He has experience throughout his varsity team. His doubles teams are loaded with third year varsity players senior Buddy Buchanon and and junior Mitchell Irby. The number two doubles team has third year varsity player and state wrestling champ senior Sergio Borjas and junior Jose Orgega. The singles set up right now has second year varsity player senior Johnny Tran at number one singles and third year varsity player senior Nano Hernandez.
