Austin Yount will forever be the answer to a trivia question.

Yount, from Pleasant Hill, Mo., is the first men’s track and field signing for Central Christian College’s fledgling program of coach Dan Swaney.

The CCC program will begin with the 2015 season.

 Yount will compete for the Tigers next spring in all three jumping events, the high jump, long jump and the triple jump.

“I am very excited to have Austin sign as the first member of our new men’s track program,” Swaney said. “He is a very good athlete who will have a great impact for us and I think he embodies the kind of person we want here at Central Christian.”

Yount will graduate later this spring with a 3.23 high school GPA. He will major in accounting.
