I told you guys that I would try and update you after I had a chance to see him at graduation. It sounds like Austin is fitting in well with Philly, He was signed as a UFA and just got back from rookie camp. He said that when he went into camp he was just a guy fighting for a spot but by the time camp was over he was listed as the #4 tackle. Philly dresses 3 tackles for each game off the active roster so he has not worked his way into the pads yet but his attitude is that he can out work everybody else and that might just move him up. He also was quick to point out that it is awful early and he could still be traded or cut before the season starts, so he is fully aware of the precarious position he is in and is willing to lay it all on the line for his dream. Your O line coach has been the best thing in the world for Austin, the encouragement and training is making all the difference for this young man. I think you guys will soon know this guys name and be cheering him on Sundays. Although he is still going to get schooled by Jared Allen!!!
BTW I asked him if he would join a discussion on BGN but he was concerned that it might be a violation of team policy so it looks like that will not happen any time soon. He did say that he would check. So we will see!
