Tavon Austin Showing His Daughter His College Highlights Is Pure Wholesomeness

Former West Virginia star receiver Tavon Austin is known for his incredible college highlights. His daughter's reaction to them were awesome.

In case you needed a feel-good story heading into the weekend of NFL Divisional Round playoff matchups, here's one courtesy of NFL free agent wide receiver Tavon Austin and his daughter.

Drafted No. 8 overall in the 2013 NFL Draft out of West Virginia, Austin is seen sitting on the couch with his daughter, Ayva, watching his college mixtape/senior highlights. The highlight video has become something of a meme on social media, and Ayva is as mesmerized as all of us.


The video can be found on YouTube and is nearly ten minutes long, showcasing Austin's superb athleticism and time with the Mountaineers, where he played from 2009-2012. 

The mixtape starts listing off his numerous accolades, including winning the Paul Hornung Award. His daughter's genuine excitement when she realizes she's watching her dad is too precious not to smile at. 

The video ends with her daughter issuing her dad her scouting report, saying, "Daddy's really fast."

Ayva, you're right. Your daddy was "really fast."

Standing just under 5-foot-9, Austin ran an eye-popping 4.34 40-yard dash with a 1.55-second 10-yard split, a 2.56-second 20-yard split, and a 4.01-second 20-yard shuttle at the NFL Scouting Combine. 

Drafted eighth overall by the Rams in 2013, Austin played there from 2013-2017 before playing with the Dallas Cowboys from 2018-2019, then floating around the San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Buffalo Bills through 2022. 

The 33-year-old Austin is now a free agent.

In his career, Austin has 244 receptions for 2,239 yards, 16 touchdowns, 1,361 rushing yards, 10 rushing touchdowns, 1,934 return yards, and three return touchdowns. 

Austin played in 52 games at West Virginia, catching 288 passes for 3,413 yards and 29 touchdowns. He amassed 110 rushing attempts for 1,0333 yards and six rushing touchdowns. In the return game, he brought back 34 punts for 433 yards, a score, and 97 kickoffs for 2,407 yards and four touchdowns. 

Thanks to that senior year mixtape at West Virginia, Ayva will always have something to look back on to admire her dad's football career.
