The 6-foot-8 center accumulated double-digit rebounds seven times, including a season-high 14 on February 10, 2018 against Liverpool (III).

The following season, Warner scored 199 points in 11 contests played (18.1 points per game). The 6-foot-8 center reached double-digit scoring in every game, including three with 20.

His three 20-point performances were 26 on January 3rd against Northstar Christian, a career-high 36 on January 19th in a 68-49 victory at Vertus and 21 on February 11th against McQuaid. Warner was named to the 2019 Private-Parochial First Team.
