"Momma's don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys" instead let them grow up to be just like Will Beatty. This is the greatest example of a perfect role model of a gentleman and a great story, but the greatest part was not mentioned and that is, he does not have the title of being a "babies daddy"
Good Luck Will. I hope you play close by so we your York fans will be able to see you play.

I think Will Beatty is a fine young man. If you look at his performance at the Senior Bowl, combine, and pro day I believe he will be drafted as at least the fourth best tackle in the country. A Nfl team will get a young man that will be focused on being a great player in his position. I know for a fact that Will Beatty has never been in a night club. His been a great example for his brothers and sisters and his team mates over the years. William is proud of the fact that he is from York and he wants to do great things at the Pro level, knowing that his community is behind him.

Will, thank you for being a positive roll model. Now Malik, take a good look at Will and what he has achieved at UConn, and follow in his footsteps. Coach Edsall, thank you for looking out for Will and please be that strong positive roll model for Malik. This coach just does not take players and use them, he takes players and treats them like a son so that when they graduate, with a BA or BS, he can say Thank you Lord, I have done my job.

Coach Edsall seems a big, big part of Will's development. He is fast becoming the Joe Paterno of his generation. If I were a betting man, I'd look for UConn to challenge for the National Championship in years to come.

Great story! Congratulations Will. I remember watching him play in high school. He had great size and athleticism. I didn't realize how good of a head he has on his shoulders. There are alot of kids out there with size and atheleticism, but not many have the character and work ethic of this kid. I wish Will the best of luck. I'm sure he will succeed however it turns out. Beatty is a great role model for student athletes who want to do things the right way.
