Our foundation and Partners in Prevention are getting ready for the 2020 Miles Austin Student Athlete. Information will be posted soon.
On May 31, 2018 over 100 high school student athletes and coaches from throughout New Jersey gathered together at Monmouth University for the Miles Austin Student Athlete Conference. This unique event was coordinated by the Lindsey Meyer Teen Institute and was sponsored by the Austin Family Foundation. Miles Austin had a ten year career with the NFL, most notably as a Dallas Cowboy. Austin attended LMTI as a teenager, and wanted to partner with LMTI to provide student athletes with the opportunity to develop leadership skills that they can use both on and off the field. Student athletes spent the day hearing from Austin, current NFL player DeMarco Murray, and other motivating presenters. They participated in workshops that focused on Developing a Winning Mindset, College Athletics, Leadership Skills On and Off the Field, and Maintaining your Motivation. Through a panel discussion, students were also able to ask questions and interact with Austin, Murray, sports psychologists, and collegiate athletes.
