All-County, all-district athlete
Mt. Juliet Christian Academy senior Austin Collier signed paperwork Thursday afternoon, Feb. 9 to continue his education and football career at Bethel University, an NAIA institution located in McKenzie and a member of the Mid-South Conference.
Collier, who rushed for over 2,500 yards and 33 touchdowns in his time at MJCA, was called, "one of the good guys," by his coach Dan Davis.
He helped lead the Saints to a record of 6-4 in 2016 while earning All-Wilson County honors from The Wilson Post and East-Middle District 1-A post-season honors.
Collier is the son of Ronnie Collier and Shea Duke.
