From the time he picked up a football, Providence High’s Austin Proehl has been playing in his father’s shadow.
Ricky Proehl is a former NFL wide receiver, amassed 669 catches for 8,878 yards and 54 touchdowns in a 17-year career that featured stints with the Arizona Cardinals, St. Louis Rams and Carolina Panthers.
