Isaiah Austin

Despite being unable to fulfill his dream of playing basketball in the NBA, former Baylor University star Isaiah Austin says God has blessed him with an opportunity for something greater — sharing His Word.

Isaiah Austin is the author of the new book, Dream Again: A Story of Faith, Courage, and the Tenacity to Overcome. Isaiah has an incredible story. He played basketball at Baylor University and was considered a first-round prospect in the 2014 NBA draft until diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome (a rare genetic disorder) just five days before the draft.

This meant he could no longer play basketball at a competitive level because of major heart concerns. During the 2014 draft, Commissioner Adam Silver made Austin a ceremonial pick, which fulfilled his dream of getting drafted. Isaiah recently joined Christian Post contributor Bryce Johnson on the syndicated UNPACKIN’ it radio show to talk about his faith and his inspiring story.
