Video Highlights


Paul Barrington

Simpson University, Coach

Austin grew as a player and a person his last 2 years at Simpson. His work ethic was exemplary. He wore out the weight room. He had a 2B and game winning hit to beat the 17th ranked team in the nation. His Home Run against Marymount was a 400’ bomb. His speed allowed him to cover RF well. It will be interesting to see how he does in the next few years.
