He later attended junior college at Los Angeles Valley JC and then went to UCLA. At UCLA Banner was an All-American gymnast in 1961. He was all-around champion for the Southern Pacific Region of the AAU in 1961-62 while competing for the Los Angeles Turners Club. He was then head gymnastics coach at Cal Irvine for a few years.
