Overcoming adversity is quite the feat, and Austin Meade has done that. His mom Jocelyn says "despite many struggles in life Austin has empowered through those times and become a much stronger person for that reason." Austin is this week's 103.3 KFR/Meijer H.S. Athlete of the week.

"Austin is a dual sport athlete and was on the MLive dream team as a pitcher for baseball this past 2014 season. He is a captain of the varsity football team and plays on offense as the center, defense as a defensive tackle, he is the kicker, punter, and kicks field goals as well. Despite his large stature of 6'0 and 280lbs he is very agile and quick."
