Kelvin Beachum Jr. graduated from Southern Methodist University (SMU) and was drafted in the 7th round of the 2012 NFL draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin describes Beachum as ” a team leader who is mature beyond his years.” Beachum, a starter in 35 of 40 NFL games played, tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) on October 18, 2015. He signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars during the 2016 off-season.
Beachum currently serves as a Brand Ambassador for the NFL Players Association. “I am a professional football player by occupation, but making a positive impact on others is my passion and purpose,” say Beachum. Beachum has taken an interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education and donates his time towards faith-based and STEM-related initiatives throughout the country. He also spends a significant amount of time giving back to the NFL’s Fuel Up to Play 60 program.
Beachum founded Life and Favor, LLC, a public speaking business, in September of 2012. Attend PNE 2017 to learn more about Beachum’s life plan to leverage his NFL playing experience for a greater purpose.
