Chiefs’ hopeful Austen Lane loves writing and football
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The college coaches didn’t think much of the skinny defensive end from the small town in Wisconsin. And given the facts, it wasn’t much of a surprise. Austen Lane was a gangly Wisconsin kid with an affinity for writing who had grown up playing hockey and barely weighed 200 pounds as a senior at Iola-Scandinavia High School.
“When you’re from Wisconsin,” Lane says, “your dream is to go play for the Wisconsin Badgers ... it ended up not working out.”
So you might say that Lane, a fourth-year defensive end with the Chiefs, is used to working through adversity. But then again, he says, you’re never quite prepared for what can happen. On June 13, after three years with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Lane was waived to clear space on the roster.
