Plymouth High School football player Austin Scheffer signed his Letter of Intent to play football on Feb. 1st, 2017. Here is a brief interview with him about his high school experience and decision.
What advice would you give to student-athletes that are interested in continuing their career at the college level?
Austin: “Stay in the weight room and buy into the program. Always listen to your coaches. They want the best for you in athletics and academics. Make sure you stay on top of your grades – nothing below a C.”
Why did you choose Northwood University?
Austin: “I always wanted to do business. They have a great business school and they really wanted me as a player. They had my best interest and wanted me as a student and player. They knew I would succeed as a player. Good players, programs, welcoming, etc.”
What did you enjoy most about your Senior year?
Austin: “Getting to play together one last time. We were brothers and staying together was very important to us. If I could do it all over again I would try harder to motivate other on our team to be successful. I really enjoyed playing for Coach Sawchuk. He was a great mentor.”
