Personal comments from Austin-- Kicking
|I am currently a senior at O'Fallon Township High School, O'Fallon, IL. My high school goals for this year are focusing on academics, preparing for college and helping our O'Fallon Panther Football team advance deeper into the state playoffs than our last year quarterfinal finish. Other than football, I also enjoy wrestling on the O'Fallon Panther wrestling team and the related weight room training. The common denominator that unites football P/K/PK and wrestling for me is the self discipline and incredible individual performance pressure each generates. Indescribably exciting!|
My first volunteer experience was helping unload trucks at the O'Fallon Tree Limb Drop Off (storm damage) when I was twelve years old. For my efforts, I received a letter of commendation from the O'Fallon Mayor and was recognized in a local newspaper article. Since 2005, I have volunteered and participated in Project U.S. Walk, Bethany Place (two local charitable organizations) and two church mission trips (Nashville, TN - flood damage clean-up) and Joplin, MO (tornado damage rebuilding).
Aside from practicing P/K/PK in my free time, I enjoy swimming, going to the movies, TV, dining out and yes, some X-Box and Playstation. I live in a single parent household, so my personal activities are somewhat limited as I have worked part-time for the past 3 years (fast food restaurants and currently lawn maintenance) in order to help offset football and personal expenses.
