Austin’s fledgling football school faces challenges. Here, a child’s hand rests upon a worn soccer ball. Although it appears aged, the ball was less than three months old when photographed. Austin begins training children at a very young age despite the challenging field conditions- broken glass, rocks, and trash- that deteriorate his equipment. According to Austin, this is central in giving them the necessary time to develop professional soccer potential, his long-term vision for his young players.
