Austyn Grady loves wrestling, there isn't a doubt about that. Wrestling has given Austyn many things, like bravery and courage, all of which he has been able to take off the mat and put into real life. Austyn is especially looking beyond one bad practice or one tough loss, and looking towards how it makes him grow. He has everything it means to be a HERO, and we are sure he is off to a great start on what will become a long career of wrestling. Good luck out there Austyn!
