Austin Lien has been playing with Drag’n Thrust since its inception in 2009, joining the roster as a nineteen-year-old.  He plays handler, and typically finds himself in an offensive role. Austin served as captain in four consecutive seasons (2012-2015), and is returning to the role for 2017. He was named as part of the “Starting Seven” by Skyd Magazine for the Club Mixed 2012 season, and Ultiworld’s First Team All-Club in 2015.

Austin is fortunate enough to have gotten hitched to co-thruster Martha Lien (née Harris), who taught him how to play ultimate back in 2006. Watch for an all-Lien handler line when Martha, Austin, and Jacob (brother) see the field together.
