Made his first start of 2015 in the first game of a doubleheader against Fordham on 2/14 where he went 4.2 innings, allowing three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out a career high six batters -- pitched better than his final line indicated against Fordham as all three runs scored came on his final pitch of the day thanks to a three-run double...

Closed out the series-clinching 4-1 win over Notre Dame with a scoreless inning in the ninth... Held North Carolina in check with 1.2 scoreless innings of relief in the come-from-behind 6-5 win... Turned in five solid innings in a start versus Auburn on 3/24 and danced around early trouble to hold the Tigers to just one run on four singles... Tech rallied from the 1-0 deficit and beat Auburn 4-1 to split the season series, but did not factor in the decision... Worked a scoreless ninth in Tech’s series-clinching 10-3 victory over Pittsburgh on 5/10.
Selected as one of three captains... Academic All-ACC selection... Enjoyed a breakout season for the Yellow Jackets, bouncing back from an arm injury that limited his action over 2012 and 2013...

Stepped into the weekend rotation for the first time in his career on 3/15 versus No. 22 Miami and pitched a gem over a career-long 6.0 innings with a career-best six strikeouts... Tech went on to win game 3-2 in extra innings to sweep the doubleheader and win the series... Made his second straight ACC start at No. 13 North Carolina on 3/22, pitching five innings but did not factor in the decision in Tech's 6-5 win in 13 innings... Pitched 4.1 innings at Pitt on 3/29, received no support from his offense and absorbed the loss in Tech's 5-0 setback... Matched his career long of six innings and tossed a shutout, allowing just three hits with four strikeouts versus Duke on 4/5 as the Jackets won 5-1... He retired the last nine Duke hitters he faced in order...

After dodging trouble in the first two innings versus FSU, he faced just three batters over the minimum over his final four innings on the mound... Deserved a better fate at Maryland on 4/19, allowing just two runs in 5.1 innings but getting just a run of support from the offense in Tech's 4-1 loss... Once again deserved a better result at NC State, limiting the Wolfpack to five hits and one run with no walks and four strikeouts but falling 1-0...

Registered his fifth quality start of the season at No. 1 Virginia on 5/10, allowing one run on five hits in six innings but did not factor in the decision in Tech's 4-3 loss...
