Fast break: At 6-foot-4, but with 7-footer's wingspan, his presence inside allowed Bullard many options defensively as program produced three-season 77-19 overall record, 30-0 County/Metro Athletic Conference mark, two Central Section Division I titles and one runner-up. This season's CMAC MVP averaged 11.5 points, 10.9 rebounds and 2.7 blocks. The son of former Reedley College All-America tight end Calvin Young, he leaves with school career-record 214 blocks. Next: Humboldt State.
He said it: "He cleaned up a lot of mistakes we had on defense. We could kind of funnel guys into him and, if he didn't block the shot, he would change or alter it. He made kids think twice before going in there. It was always on the back of their minds: 'Calvin may block my shot.' He was a real difference-maker for us, and we're definitely going to miss that. God gave him some real gifts you don't see every day, and he's going to have a good career moving forward defensively." — Knights coach Jeff Schmidt
