A total of 39 Kohl's Kicking athletes have made the Lou Groza Award and Ray Guy Award preseason watch lists as we head into the 2018-2019 college football season.
Austin has not yet attended a Kohl's ranking/evaluation showcase event.
I have always been raised to follow my dreams. That I can be whatever I want to if I put my heart and soul into. I never thought it would be with football; however, my path in life has led me into the world of kicking and punting.
I started at the age 3 with sports. I fell in love with competing and have always enjoyed all sorts of sports. I started with baseball, soccer, basketball, and added running into the mix at age 9. Around age 13, I was no longer able to play select soccer due to family circumstances out of my mom's control and it is then that I was introduced to the skill of kicking and punting a football. It took some time, but I began to learn to love the skill and wanted to be the best I could. I have grown, both skill and physical, lots over the years with the guidance from Kohls Kicking and their coaching staff.
I am entering my junior year in high school with a 2.8 cum gpa. I understand this is not quite as high as some colleges would like to see; however, please know I am working hard at my studies and I do give 100% in my academics. I have always struggled with academics, but with the help of my mom and my extended family, they have never let me give up and have helped me grow in my studies and knowledge. I hope to increase my gpa to a 3.2 by end of junior year. I have a path set that I hope to stay on in order to get my academics there.
My family has a close knit dynamic. I have my mom, a disabled Marine Corps veteran, and my sister, 9year old entering the 4th grade. Being raised by a strong minded, strict, but also very athletic and fun mother has helped guide me to become the young man I am today. And being the big brother to a stubborn, chatty, and sweet little sister, I have always taken the role of being her role model and friend.
Outside of kicking/punting, I also participate in Varsity Cross Country, JV basketball, Varsity track and field , and did JV baseball (unfortunately baseball now is moving to a spring sport, so I will no longer be able to play). I also volunteer with Waukesha Park and Recreation coaching girls softball in the summer. I have volunteered with Veteran awareness groups with my mom also in the past. I have also volunteered with local running organizations at their races for set up and take down during events. I work as a lifeguard at the local YMCA. When I am not doing one of the above listed, I enjoy spending time making memories with my friends/teammates. My family loves to travel, my most memorable trip being that to Europe last summer to visit Belgium and Paris, France.
