Two Former Klein ISD Athletes Signed to the NFL

Two Former Klein ISD Athletes Signed to the NFL

Former star student-athletes Ryan McCollum and Austin Trammell are on their way to the NFL after receiving the call of their life to play football professionally.

Austin, a former Klein High Bearkat and Rice University football star, was a two-time unanimous All-District 15-6A team member and finished his high school career with 76 receptions, 1,105 yards, and 16 touchdowns.

Ryan, a former Klein Oak panther and Texas A&M University football star, earned first-team All-District 15-6A honors, All-Greater Houston honors, and helped Klein Oak reach the state quarterfinals as a junior.

“We are especially proud of Austin and Ryan for their accomplishments during their college careers,” said Darby Young, Klein ISD Athletic Director. “It speaks volumes to see two former Klein ISD students signed to the NFL, as they continue their careers at a professional level.”

Klein ISD is proud of these two young men for taking their talents to the next level, and we hope for the best as they get ready for their new chapter!
