Quarterback Austin Cassidy of Lincoln (Neb.) Southwest has made a firm decision on where he will be attending college over the next four to five years. He did have other options, but the 6-foot-1, 208-pound athlete has decided to stay close to home and compete for a starting position on either offense or defense.
