"We start practice next week and I'm anxious to get going really," said Beaumont, who is rated as the nation's 28th best wide receiver by Scout.com. "I hope to get to the state championship game this year. I also want to show the [college] coaches what I can do. I'm ready to get started."
For those that follow high school football in the Bluegrass State, Beaumont's abilities are well known. Following his strong junior campaign, the 5-foot-9, 180-pounder picked up All-State votes for his play at receiver, running back and cornerback.

"I talked to Coach Nord on [Tuesday]," he said. "He asked me to stop by and see him soon. I talked to UK last month."
Projected as a receiver on the college level, Beaumont added that in his discussion with the Cardinal coaches that he could also receive an opportunity to display his talent on the defensive side of the ball as a cornerback.
"They really want me to come in and play receiver, but U of L might try me on defense some too," he explained.
With his season set to kick off on Saturday, August 19 when Male faces New Albany (Ind.) High School in the second annual Rivalry Bowl, Beaumont says that his focus is currently on preparing to the season opener.
"I'm not really sure when I'll make my decision - right now I'm just getting ready for this year."
