Austin Santino waited his entire childhood to become the starting quarterback for the Nordhoff Rangers. After working to achieve his goal, he finally found himself under center as a senior, but a serious should injury sidelined him for a good portion of the season and when he was finally able to get back on the field, he was far from 100 percent. Despite a disappointing senior season, Santino recently accepted an invitation to play football at Occidental College in Los Angeles next fall.
