The Men’s Soccer Team have added Tri-County’s Austin Olson. He is the son of Kevin and
Christine Olson and brother to Jordan Olson, Courtney Olson, and Mark Hucklebury. While anchoring the defense, Austin captained Tri-County during his junior and senior years in which he started every game. He has also played six year of club soccer for CASSA. “When Austin made the decision to attend Grace and play here I was delighted. He is a person who works hard in everything he does and is always looking to better himself on and off the field. He has great field vision and awareness. He reads the game well and will be a great addition to our defense which graduated two players this year. We have strengthened our defense by adding him. He can play centrally as well as outside. We have gained a solid player and all around person in Austin”, stated Coach Buchanan. Austin has earned All-Conference Honorable Mention, been named to All-District Teams, and selected as MVP. He is a member of the National Honors Societ as well as Academic Letter, and been named Student of the Month. Austin is involved in the community as a AYSO referee, works with Youth Soccer Camps, American Rred Cross Blood Drives, youth group volunteer and youth ministries volunteer. Austin also enjoys spending time in the outdoors, fishing, hunting, and camping. He credits his Grandfather as the most influential person in his life. “My Grandfather is a great person who kept me active and shared a lot of wisdom with me about life and what to expect. I look forward to furthering my education at Grace, meeting new people, and most importantly improving my relationship with God”, commented Austin. Austin will wear #2 for the Tigers.
