Transitioning from football player to wrestler to baseball left fielder is anything but a seamless endeavor.
Austin Wethington simply makes it appear that way.
The Indian Creek senior is a throwback in the most complimentary and old-school manner, a three-sport athlete who on late-summer and autumn Friday evenings takes enormous pride in being needed on both sides of the line of scrimmage.
“I love playing both offense and defense. It doesn’t matter as long as I’m playing football,” said the 6-1, 200-pound Wethington, who counts H-back and linebacker as his own personal double-duty. “I don’t even like coming off the field, but everyone needs a break every once in a while.”
