season...Can play both forward positions, and head coach Cy Alexander calls him a
late bloomer in high school who should do nothing but improve as he furthers
his college career...Comes to A&T with a college body, so he gives the Aggies
a physical presence in the paint.

legendary high school coach Stu Vetter...Montrose Christian
was routinely nationally-ranked during Beckford's career...Had a productive
senior season at Montrose.

Jason and was born on Oct. 29, 1994...Majors in criminal justice and plans to
