Austin Proehl Filling The WR Void for UNC

Austin Proehl talks about his changing role due to the absence of Mack Hollins.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Mack Hollins's absence is daunting, but Austin Proehl is using it as motivation. 

Proehl says stepping up is what he's practiced for his whole life, and while he provides a different skillset than Hollins, he's relying on his experience and preparation for Saturday's matchup at Virginia. 

It's not as if Proehl isn't used to a starting role or the bright lights. The junior started the season opener, has made some huge plays in big wins, and is third on the team with his 24 receptions through the first seven games.
