UGA Freshman QB Carson Beck Gets Extra Work In Over The Weekend

July 6, 2020

The Bulldogs are loaded at quarterback in the 2020 season, and with 5-star quarterback commit Brock Vandagriff‍ getting all the attention on the recruiting trail, it’s easy to see why Bulldog freshman quarterback Carson Beck‍ has become somewhat of a forgotten quarterback over the last few months.

Carson doesn’t mind, though. The Jacksonville native was back home for a couple days for 4th of July weekend, and made sure to get some work in with local QB trainer, Denny Thompson.

Beck is always working hard behind the scenes, and it’s easy to see that he’s been focusing on his footwork and throwing on the run. Dawg Post got an up-close look at Beck in action on Halloween night last fall where he threw for 4 touchdowns and made planty of plays with his feet. He’s got a live arm, but his frame and athleticism is an often overlooked part of his game. 

“He is a much better athlete than he gets credit for. The guy is the whole package!” Thompson told Dawg Post.

Beck is without a doubt fighting an up-hill battle in the QB race this fall with Wake Forest transfer Jamie Newman expected to be the starter. Make no mistake, Carson Beck does have the arm talent, leadership qualities, athleticism, and mobility to win the job in Athens at some point in his career.

USC transfer J.T Daniels is expected to be in a prime position to take over at quarterback for the Bulldogs in 2021, and many expect future 2021 signee Brock Vandagriff to make some noise in the QB room that year.

Then there’s D’Wan Mathis. He has a full year of experience on Beck, and when healthy, has always had the potential to make plays one day.

It may be the deepest QB room in the country, but don’t sleep on Carson Beck in the future. Don’t do it. He’s a winner, he’s got the size, the work ethic, and the drive to reach his potential.
