Why I'm Signing with BYU: Austin Chambers

Out of Shawnee Mission West High School, Austin Chambers will be home weathering a snowstorm the day he plans on signing his National Letter of Intent. Read what he has to say about why he’s choosing BYU over in-state college Kansas.

There are a couple of reasons why Scout.com’s 72nd ranked offensive lineman will sign with BYU tomorrow. Austin Chamber's first reason is a simple one.

“One reason why I chose BYU is because BYU plays great football and I want to play great football,” said Chambers. “I think playing at BYU will allow me to be a part of something special.”

Aside from football, Chambers developed a real connection with Coach Bronco Mendenhall and his feels he can get the most out of his scholarship by being associated with his program at BYU.

“Aside from football Coach Mendenhall is a great coach and cares more for you as a person,” said Chambers. “He wants you to be a great man on top of being a great football player, so I chose BYU because I can live my faith and feel comfortable doing so at the college level. I can also play a high level of football while living my faith, and when I looked at the other schools that I could have played at it was either football or faith. At BYU I can do both and that’s why I wanted to play there. I can have both football and faith while getting a great education.”

Due to the Midwest being slammed with its second biggest snow storm of the year, Chambers won’t be attending school tomorrow but will be hosting his own signing party with other members from his high school team.

“Well, actually we’re having a big snow storm out here,” said Chambers. “I’ve got a couple of buddies that will be signing with Tulsa tomorrow with me signing at my house, so we’re going to go pick up their stuff tomorrow around noon and sign here. We’re just all hanging out at my house together and we’ll have a signing party here. I have one friend going to Tulsa and another going to a junior college.”
