True Meaning of the Austin Edwards 3on3
Memorial

Austin Edwards

This is a tribute to our son Austin Edwards

1993-2005

On November 23, 2005 our son Austin Michael Edwards, died from injuries sustained from an ATV accident. He was 12 years old.

Austin was a kind-hearted, loving, compassionate, charismatic boy. He will always be remembered for his million dollar smile and the personality to go with it. He loved life and he loved basketball. He had just started his 3rd year with the Superior Basketball Association right before his accident. He was looking very much forward to the season. He was not what you would call a "Pro" player, but he had what the SBA tries to promote in the city of Superior. Austin had the "love" for the game, respect, good sportsmanship, and a positive attitude. He did not care if he did not play the whole game, he was excited for the team and for just being a part of it. He was very self confident and a team player.

Austin had many achievements in his short 12 years of life. He belonged to the Superior Junior Rifle Team for four years. He won many awards including the NRA Pro Marksmanship Metal, along with being a certified archer with the Aurora Wisconsin Archery Club. He was very proud of completing the D.A.R.E Education Program at school. He loved to go "Geo Caching" with his uncle Tyler. He was an avid hunter of deer and bear. Two days before he died, Austin shot his first trophy buck. A 250 lbs. 8 pt. He was also an upcoming trapper of beaver, fox, fisher and otter. He also had a love for fishing with his brothers.

The spring before his accident he was able to have one of the most exciting experiences of his life. He was able to attend a Timberwolves Basketball Game. His Aunt Kathy is friends with Katie, (T-Wolves PR manager) and she let us in a couple hours before the game to meet the players and to warm up before the game with them. Austin and his brother Cole retrieved basketballs for an hour before the game. Meeting all the players and shooting hoops with the "PRO'S".

We are very proud of the person that Austin had become in the short 12 years that we were blessed with him. He had touched many hearts, young and old while he was here. While he took a piece of our hearts with him, by having this tournament dedicated to him, we can keep his memory alive and keep our promise to him that he will never be forgotten and he will live forever in everyone's heart that he touched.

I have to say that I am proud and honored to be a part of the Superior Basketball Association. To be a board member along with so many men and woman, giving up personal time, who thrive to keep the children of the City of Superior and the surrounding communities happy, healthy and positively focused individuals.

With Sincere Appreciation,

Mike, Michelle, Cole, and Brody Edwards
