Stan moved to Massachusetts in 1932 and took up Horseshoe Pitching because he lacked other things to do. In his first season of top flight tournament pitching, he won the mass. State Title with a ringer percentage of 60%, also the New England Title with a 63.9%. In six years of pitching, he won the Mass. State Title twice, was runner-up once. Third and fourth once, averaging 70% for 4 of those years.

Stan won the New England Championship twice, second once, fourth once and fifth once. Two of those years he averaged over 70%.

In 1942 Stan moved out to Arizona where he won the State Title 10 times, 1949 through 1959 and he also competed in the World Tournament about 10 times.

Stan was a full-blooded Hopi Indian. He was a first class gentleman on the courts; a real reserved type fellow and all his opponents enjoyed his company.
