He then attended Colorado Northwestern Community College, Colorado Mountain College and Haskell Indian Nations University.  While attending Colorado Northwestern Community College, he was a member of the Men’s Cross Country team with his brother’s Charley and Leland.  All three brothers competed in the National Junior College Cross Country Championships in El Paso, Texas representing the CNCC Spartans and the Ute Indian Tribe.
