He improved as a sophomore punting 42 times for an average 41.1 per punt. He dropped 12 inside the 20 yard line and had 9 punts longer than 50 yards. 

Beatty averaged 41 yards per punt again as a junior in 2014. He placed 15 inside the 20 yard line and had 7 longer than 50 yards including a 67 yard punt against Virginia. 

He improved a good amount between his junior and senior years. Through 10 games this season Beatty is averaging 43.9 yards per punt and has dropped 16 inside the 20 yard line. He has 14 50-plus yard punts so far.
