NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Neurologics, an innovative company that applies proprietary software technology to remediate and improve brain function for traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) like concussions, has announced the appointment of Stephen Austin to President of its Sports Division.
Austin is a former NFL executive and founder of the NFL regional and super regional combines. Austin owned and operated ELITE Football Combines where he created the National Athletic Testing System (NATS), a series of football evaluation camps for high school football players hoping to play college football. ELITE was purchased by the National Football League in 2009, and Austin then served as Director of Operations for NFL Combine Properties from 2009 until 2016. Austin has provided player evaluation services on behalf of the NFL, NFL Europe, Canadian Football League, the XFL and the Arena Football League. A true game devotee, Austin is set to lead this weekend's Alliance of American Football (AAF) combine in Los Angeles.
"I am excited to join the Neurologics team and lead its concussion treatment efforts into sports communities, professional and amateur alike," said Austin. "At this time, we have several letters of intent from major universities. They are keenly interested in helping players of all sports get well."
Austin is the owner of Austin Media Group out of Newport Beach, Calif. and has served as lead consultant for sports programming development at King World Television. He has provided sports and entertainment consulting services to networks, producers, casting agencies, corporations and sports organizations throughout his professional career. He also is the creator, producer and lead talent (season one) of the two-time Emmy-nominated NFL Network hit show "UnDrafted," the highest-rated show in NFLN history.
Founded by Dr. Terry Eagan and Karen Odell-Barber, Neurologics provides custom-designed, non-invasive, drug-free treatment programs to diagnose, remediate and permanently improve brain function.
