Crystal Lake, IL- It says a lot for an outsider to pick a new high school that feels like home. Especially if you came from another state. Prairie Ridge HS’s tight end Austen Ferbet made that journey from Missouri to Illinois. From the “Show Me” state, Ferbet settled on the “Land Of Lincoln”, and the rest is history. Head coach Chris Schremp got an early Christmas present last year, and like cousin Eddie in Christmas Vacation said, “It’s the gift that keeps on giving.”
Mr. Ferbet is a very busy young man these days but he spent a couple of minutes with bergsworld.live recently. We sat down between his football workout and his basketball session to learn more about this #YoungGun.
