The junior has not only helped the Indians win three straight NIC-10 Conference titles and sectional crowns, on Wednesday he signed a letter-of-intent to dive for the University of Indianapolis.

Staman said while gymnastics and tumbling gave him the body control to excel in diving, it did come with a major challenge.
