Coaches' Comments: "Austin is now up to 275 pounds and has really improved his strength. With Marcus Hoover and Austin, we have two experienced defensive ends who have played a lot of football the past three years. We consider that as a strength on the defensive line. Austin will bring a little more athleticism to the position and give us a little more of a pass rush from that spot. He's a senior who has been there, had success, is a leader, and knows what we expect from him both on and off the field. He will be factor for us this season." - defensive ends coach Phil Zacharias
