Austin Cordova, a former three-year letterwinner at Baldwin Wallace University, enters his first season at The College of Wooster, where he’ll work with the Fighting Scots’ strong safeties.
Cordova gained four years of experience in the prep ranks at Rocky River High School, a suburb of Cleveland. There, he worked his way up to the team’s co-defensive and special teams coordinator, where his team won the program’s second-ever playoff game. Three of Cordova’s charges earned all-Ohio honors, while 12 made the all-district team.
As a student-athlete, Cordova started for the Yellow Jackets as a senior and served as the team’s nickel back as a sophomore and junior. For his career, Cordova logged 85 tackles, 51 of which came as a senior. He broke up 10 passes and had two interceptions.
Cordova earned his bachelor’s in exercise science from Baldwin Wallace in 2015.
