BULLARD — Described by his coach as a “Renaissance Man,” Austin Langemeier did it all during his four years at Bullard Brook Hill.

With the Guard, Langemeier won a football state championship, went to two basketball final fours and earned gold medals in track.

After a senior year that included first-team all-state in football, basketball and track, Langemeier was named TAPPS 3A Male Athlete of the Year.

“We are extremely proud of him and how he represented Brook Hill,” said Guard basketball coach and athletic director Wally Dawkins. “He is the type of young man who is top-notch academically, an outstanding Christian young man and leads his teams to success in the face of competition.”

As a wide receiver and defensive back, Langemeier helped Brook Hill win its first football championship in December. Langemeier made the title-clinching interception with 45 seconds left in the Guard’s 26-3 victory over rival Austin Regents and made a key 33-yard reception early in the game.

Langemeier finished the year leading the team in receiving yards and touchdowns.

On the hardwood, Langemeier nearly guided the Guard to a third final four, losing by four to eventual runner-up Fort Worth Calvary in the regional final. Langemeier was an important member of the Brook Hill team that finished second in state in 2010.

During his senior year Langemeier averaged 16.9 points and 7.2 rebounds.

In track, injuries kept Langemeier from defending his gold medals in the 800- and 1,600-meter runs, though he still finished second in both events and took sixth in the high jump.

Langemeier was awarded Brook Hill’s Male Iron Man Award for the senior who participates successful in three varsity sports; and was named Mr. Track for the school.

Langemeier, who once appeared on the cover of the national magazine Bigger Faster Stronger making a catch for the Guard, will continue his football career next year at Wheaton College in Illinois.
