High School career:
Monrovia High School:
At just 5’9 and 140 pounds in high school, Damon was a student athlete with big hopes and dreams for a teenager of his stature. If his build weren't a big enough obstacle, he played for Monrovia High School- a lower division school with a combined winning record of 8-12 his senior year. Needless to say, recruiters weren’t knocking down his door, but he knew if university coaches saw his ability, he would win their confidence. It wasn’t until he played a team with a roster filled with All-American athletes, that his talents were noticed. Fortunately, the best game of his high school career was also the day that college recruiters were in attendance. Immediately following that game, He began receiving calls from various universities, ultimately receiving a scholarship from the University of Oregon.
