Bio

Position: Fullback

Previous College: None

Projection: Third-String

Status: Walk-On

Austin Katsorelos (b. July 13, 1993) lettered two years at Blue Valley High School under head coach Eric Driskell.

Katsorelos led the Tigers to a league and district championship in 2011, and he was named a second-team all-league tight end. He had 11 receptions for 152 yards and four touchdowns as a senior.

He caught 11 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns as a junior in 2010, and was selected to play in the 2012 Blue-Grey National All-Star Classic at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. He also played baseball.

Now Katsorelos is a walk-on fullback at K-State. He redshirted in 2012, and did not see any game action in 2014 or 2015. Zach Nemechek and Adam Weber graduated, so now he'll back up Glenn Gronkowski and Winston Dimel.
