Q&A with Tiger Football's Austin Hall

By: Connor Dunning ( @CDunning901 )

Austin Hall, #25, is a redshirt freshman defensive back for the University of Memphis football team and has quickly become a fan favorite. He plays the “star” position on defense, which is a hybrid safety that uses multiple techniques such as blitzing like a linebacker and covering like a safety. The unique name of his position holds some irony in it because he has also emerged as a star on the defensive side of the ball for the Tigers. In the first seven games, he has 44 tackles and a fumble recovery while taking on more responsibility for the Tigers defense. Hall, a former walk-on from Collierville High School, is a great example of what hard work and determination can produce. In one season, he has gone from the practice squad to starting for the Tigers to winning the AAC defensive player of the week award.

Fan Essentials Memphis Tiger Merchandise Unboxing/Review

They have been in business since February of 2015 and what started initially as a Memphis Grizzlies service has now branched into all teams from the MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL. They just recently included college sports and I was one of the first to get one of their boxes for the University of Memphis – just in time for football season.
