He then decided to pursue more education and a coaching position at Florida International University; while there Austin earned a Masters of Science in Hospitality Management and became the Men’s Basketball Graduate Assistant.

Upon his return to campus, Austin stated “The feeling, being back at Hargrave, is surreal. The things I was able to learn and develop during my time as a player on the post graduate team has stuck with me and has led me back to Chatham with the intentions to help these young men achieve their goals and dreams”.

"I was grateful enough to join a family and be a part of greatness at Hargrave Military Academy for my postgraduate year. This year helped mold me and sharpen my dedication to the craft of basketball but also discipline in my life. I was able to develop and implement my strong work ethic and leadership skills into everyday activities within a rigorous schedule. Hargrave Military Academy taught me many things but most importantly to 'Dream Big'".
