Clinton High School senior Austin Rauch signed his national letter of intent Wednesday afternoon to attend Knox College in Galesburg and play basketball.
Rauch says he's worked really hard to get to this point and credits his coaches and teammates for pushing him.
Knox College offers Rauch a chance to pursue a career in the medical field. He recognizes pursuing a pre-med degree and playing college sports will be a challenge.
Rauch feels the Knox College system is going to fit him well although he is not sure what to expect once he's there.
Rauch points to the Maroons Regional loss to Decatur Eisenhower as the highlight of his career. He calls it a tough one but felt the team fought hard even though they fell short.
