Austin Traylor, a 6'4" 211 pound tight end and defensive end for Walnut Ridge in the heart of Columbus, Ohio, has started out his season strong helping his team jump to a quick start.
"The first few weeks have been good," Traylor told

And growing up and living in Columbus, there is zero affinity between
Traylor and the Scarlet and Gray.
"I was never a Buckeye fan.
I really liked the Miami Hurricanes."
