Austin thanked, “All my family members that have supported me through many years. I thank my parents, grandparents, brother, aunts, uncles and cousins, along with all my friends and the whole community of McBain for the overwhelming support of the entire program. But mostly I thank my fellow players and teammates through the years, they are the best brothers a guy could ask for. I also thank my coaches through all the years, especially Coach Maloney for the change he brought to our program in his first season back at McBain in my senior year.”
