The Swiss Army Knife
Austin Landry's versatility paying off for Pearland
Originally Appeared on Vype
Austin Landry is all over the field and rarely off it.
The man that mainly took the snaps for Pearland last season at quarterback has embraced a new but familiar role for his senior season.
Mr. Do-It-All has played snaps at quarterback, running back, receiver, punt returner and even on the defense this year for the Oilers in their now 7-0 start.
"I’ve always played every position growing up," Landry said. "Even in little league I was every where, but in junior high I had to stick to one position and that was quarterback because I liked being the captain of the team."
His versatility was shown off during Pearland's 57-42 victory against previously undefeated Strake Jesuit on Friday.
Landry had five rushes for 125 yards and four scores, two receptions for 73 yards and also converted three two-point conversions (two rushing and one passing).
"Having a game like that was much needed for me and my team, to prove to everybody that we are the real deal," Landry said.
