    Received an email from Harold Flynn, Austin's dad this morning. Effective Aug 1 he will become an Asst. Football Coach at Grandview and become a member of Mike Woodley's staff. He is finishing up his Masters Degree. Austin married his high school sweetheart, Jana, (former Houston Texan cheerleader) and they have a little boy Ethan who I think is less than two. Jana has a degree in marketing so if any Clone fan knows of any opportunities the Flynns would appreciate it.

    Good to see he is doing well for himself. He is one of my all-time favorite cyclones.

    Good to hear! Austin will always be one of my favorite Cyclones. I looked up to him while I played fball.

    Masters degree, an intelligent wife who's a former NFL cheerleader? Leave something for the rest of us while you're at it, Austin!

    Seriously though, great to hear he will be back in the area coaching!

    Congratulations !
    Also, I believe Austin is one of the Fanatics - saw his posts some time ago (probably early last year)

    One of my favorite all-time Cyclones. I think he posts here on occasion.

    Maybe Rhoads should hire him as a receivers coach down the road?

    Great news. I spent a year at Grand View. I wonder if Lou Yacenich is still their A.D. If so, Austin can learn a thing or two from the guy. Lou is/was a very well respected baseball coach (I know, different sport but coaching is coaching).

    Austin coached us athletic training students in the trainers vs managers football game awhile back. Grandview probably hired him on his performance in that game alone.

    Flynneca... poor kid ran for his life in '03. Man he was a tough kid.
     
  15. Lou is no longer the AD. Troy Plummer is and has been for a few years now.

    The softball HC is Lou Yacinich, but I believe he is the son of who you are speaking of.

    Austin posts here once in a while.

    Seems very level headed. So happy life is going well for him!

    I haven't checked on GV in quite a shile. Lou was a great coach though. He must have coached 30 years or more and seemed to find a way into the NAIA World Series more than his fair share of times.

    Flynn is my favorite Cyclone I think. I remember being so mad when Brett was named starter (which ended up working out) and he never said a word. He was one of the best 3rd down receivers I have ever seen. It seemed every 3rd and 10 he was able to come up w/ the ball. After they carried Mac off the field in his final game I remember running to mid field and he was standing there w/ his wife and I think I professed my love to him haha.
