In high school he was selected All-Region before going on to play college basketball at Milligan College and Asbury University.
While playing for Asbury University in 2009 Mike suffered a severe knee injury. He became immobilized and doctors said he would never play again.

After five years of total physical rehabilitation, he made his return playing again for Asbury. His medical case is now used as an example when chronic pain is taught at different universities and colleges.
