Austin's interest in feeding the homeless began after watching Animal Planet, after a mother panda left her cubs and learning from his father that they would be homeless. Austin then discovered that there were homeless people. This launched a series of projects called "Show Love" in which Austin feeds the homeless on the streets and reminds them to show love to someone else.
Austin has gained recognition for humanitarian acts in the U.S. and Africa. Alabama Senator Doug Jones, NFL QB Jameis Winston, and several news sources around the U.S. has recognized Austin for his efforts. To donate to his cause please visit Paypal.me/AustinPerine

A lifelong admirer of play-by-play broadcasters, Paulsen has always dreamed of calling NFL and MLB games on a national level. Having called countless high school football and baseball games and some minor league baseball in the past, Paulsen was just named the new voice of the expansion Washington Valor, a professional Arena Football League team that will play it's home games at the Verizon Center starting in 2017.

A graduate of King George High School and a four-year attendee of George Mason University, Paulsen credits his success to the inspiration and motivation of his supportive parents and the immense help he's received from his mentors over the years.

When he isn't talking about sports on the radio or appearing on a local TV show, Paulsen can typically be found at a movie theater or spending time with his family.
