NEW PODCAST: Kelvin Beachum Jr., New York Jets Offensive Lineman

THIS IS EPISODE 135 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

Kelvin Beachum Jr. was selected in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. After four seasons with the Steelers, he played one year with Jacksonville, and in 2017, he signed a three-year contract with the New York Jets.

Growing up in the Church, Beachum was a basketball and football player in high school before deciding to attend SMU in Dallas on a football scholarship. He is also passionate about giving back and has devoted a ton of time and money into ending hunger, as well as education for young people.

On this episode of the podcast, Beachum shares about the “necessary evil” that is NFL training camp, growing up attending church multiple times a week, the culture shock that was presented to him when he arrived for college at SMU, and how unity in the body of Christ is possible when topics such as race and injustice are brought to the forefront.
