After having 24 saves in the game, the Houston Dynamo coach came onto the field and told Austin, "that he did an F'ing good job in goal." Opposing team parents from different clubs periodically tell Austin that he has played extremely well in goal. These have included statements such as "that was the save of the game," and "you played extremely well in goal," as well as just coming up to Austin and telling how well he did in goal. After 24 saves in one game, three separate Lonestar parents told Austin that he "did a great job in goal." After 8 saves, plus a penalty save, a parent told Austin that he was "the man of the match."

Division winner at the Lonestar Goalkeeper Challenge. Silver Bracket Champions at a 5v5 Halloween tournament. Placed 3rd in the GKPro EGK Kombat Goalkeeper Wars Tournament. Placed 5th out of 27 Goalkeepers from across several states in the National Goalkeeper Wars tournament. Earned the Sharpshooter and Golden Glove Awards at an All-American invitational in Round Rock, Texas. Because Austin tends to play on teams where the goalkeeper role is so critical to the overall success of the team, Austin averages 175 saves in a half season (Spring or Fall). His highest season to date totaled 397 saves. This allows him to be constantly in motion and gives him the opportunity to continually get better over time. To date, he has had just under 1,983 saves in total since he started playing in goal at the age of 8. In his final game of the Fall 2023 season, Austin had 39 saves in one game resulting in not only the opposing team coach telling him, "great job in goal," but the opposing team on the field were swearing at him constantly in Spanish as he wasn't letting anything get by him. The team did lose, but even with that, Austin still maintained a 90% save rate in the game!
