Brian Austin Profile
The lack of speed over the last 10 years has been one of Army's Achilles heels in fielding a competitive football team. However, with the commit of Brian Austin, Rich Ellerson and his staff have taken a positive step in correcting that deficiency.
"His speed is his greatest asset and makes him extremely dangerous against opposing defenses," says Art Walker. "He excels as a receiver by stretching the field and has big play capabilities."
Indeed, Austin caught 65 passes for almost 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns in 2008. Austin, with 4.38 forty speed, certainly is a weapon any coach would like to have. Walker displayed his speed on the track too. The speedster set a school record in the 100 meters and was the 100-meter champion for his league.
Austin has been an impact player for Allegheny since his freshman year when he played varsity. After the 2008 season, Austin was named to the Fabulous 22 All Star team. He also was selected to play in the Northern Area Coaches Association All Star Game and was selected All-Conference twice.
Walker knows Army is getting a great player and super human being. He knows he'll miss Austin on the football field next season, "He is a fine young man on the field, in the classroom and in our community. West Point is fortunate to have him.... as was I."
