With 2,692 yards rushing over the past two high school football seasons, one might think Devin Austin would be continuing his football career in college.
That is not the case. Austin, a Penn-Trafford senior, prefers wrestling.
"I just like wrestling a little bit more," said Austin, who has recorded more than 100 career victories while wrestling for the Warriors. "Before the football season, I made a decision to pursue wrestling [in collge]."
With that in mind, Austin, a four-year starter, committed to Pitt-Johnstown.
