My name is Austin “Cooper” Early, and I am currently in the third term of my junior year at Southern Oregon University. I am 20 years old, and come from a small town in rural Oregon called Molalla. This is where I attended all of my schooling, playing football and track all throughout my high school career, leading into an invitation to play football for SOU.
I put in two great seasons with the team, and they were some of the best experiences of my life, but after my second season, I made the difficult decision to give it up due to concussions. Soon after I stopped playing football, I found powerlifting, and have been training for over a year now, and have high hopes of competing in the near future. This allows me more time to focus on my major in business administration with a focus in marketing, and also on my new internship at Aflac that I will be starting this summer.
With the skills I will learn with my degree, and this class, I hope to acquire a position in product development and marketing for a weightlifting company based out of Sacramento, in the next 3-5 years.
