Homecoming Edition

The BEST Homecoming Celebration in Town

Yes. We do homecoming better than anyone else! Austin High School will celebrate Homecoming this week! Please come out and share the fun with us.

Our Grand Marshal

Brad Long is a 1980 graduate of Austin High School and a local attorney. He has been keeping Austin High School Boys Basketball stats for 40 years and has only missed 3 games! We are thankful for his dedication to Austin High School.

Praise for Mr. Long:

"Brad was here when I was a player back in the 90's and while I am here now as a coach. He hasn't changed a bit. He is still caring, compassionate and dedicated to what he does for the Austin Boys Basketball program." -Brian Davis

"Brad Long is a true servant for Austin High School. He is a perfect example of Austin Pride and doing things the Austin Way." -Jake Miles

"Brad is more than just a friend of AHS, he is the heart of AHS!" -Phil Hastings

"Brad Long is the model of a team player and is an Austin treasure. He is one the most loyal and committed men I have ever known. His faithful service to every Austin basketball coach and his wealth of knowledge of the history of Austin basketball makes him a legend. There is not anyone who has seen and been a valuable part of so many basketball games as Brad. Brad is a great friend to me, but more important is his positive influence and friendship to so many Austin basketball players for such a long time. Brad can be described as a perfect example of an Austin Man and he has all the qualities that makes Austin Austin. I cannot think of anyone more deserving of this honor than Brad. I wish him many more years of happiness and service to Austin." -Chip Miller
