Q: Why did Joe choose FSU over Oregon State?

Q: Was he a two-year starter for Mt. San Antonio CC?
A: Yes, Joe was a two year starter.
Q: Did he win any conference or state CC honors?
A: He was named 1st team all conference and was a member of the All California team
Q: And has Joe officially graduated from Mt. Sac?
A: Yes, he just graduated from Mt. Sac.
