Austin resides in Bakersfield and believes that BC has an excellent athletics program and is excited to be a part of it for many reasons. The program works hard to have the best athletes, but also looks to ensure that these athletes are performing well in the classroom too. Working with student-athletes at BC is something he is passionate about because going through this program is what he believes made him a better person, not just a better athlete which is what he wants for the student-athletes he works with as well.
