Nebraska's four-star quarterback commitment, Harrison Beck has completed his senior season of football. Catching up with Harrison, we talked about his future and what he's looking forward to most about his collegiate life along with what he hopes to accomplish in the offseason.
Harrison Beck's senior year is over. Armwood
defeated Countryside 35-13 on November 12th, but Beck isn't letting
it get him down. In fact, Beck said
the season was almost a blur. "It
went by so fast, one thing you know we're playing the first game and the season
hasn't begun and next thing you know, it's all over with and the year's done. It
just went by so fast," said Beck.
So, now that Beck's high school football career is over, it's time to
focus on new goals and aspirations.
"I just want to be able to go to Nebraska in the best shape I can get myself
into. I don't want to show up ten
pounds overweight, I want to work every day so I can just jump into the mix and
not be dragging behind when I'm doing sprints. Just keeping myself in football shape,
being mentally sharp," said Beck.
Beck ended the season with approximately 10 passing touchdowns, four
rushing touchdowns and 1,800 yards passing with about a 65% completion
percentage. Keep in mind that Beck
didn't throw that much during games.
always been known as a young man whose goal is to win, so how would he rank the
satisfaction with his senior campaign?
"I love playing football at Countryside and with all of my teammates,
maybe some things could've gone a little differently, but what can you do. We had a really good season; I really
enjoyed playing football this year," said Beck. Harrison even spent more time working with his feet than
before. "I think I ran a little but
more than I did my junior year," he said.
Harrison isn't going to let the losses
effect him negatively, quite the opposite, in fact. "Each loss fuels you. I just want to get better, every game,
every practice, my goal (in the off-season) is to get better, to get a little
bit better each day. You want to
take a step forward each day, not a step backwards. I'm not really gonna lean on this season
too much, I'll remember all the good times. I just gotta focus on what's further up
the road. I'm excited to get up
there and compete," Beck said.
Beck also was able to catch the Nebraska-Oklahoma game and shared his
thoughts on the contest.
"Oklahoma's having a great year, they
have a sixth year senior and a Heisman candidate at runningback, but I mean,
the ball very well. I think it was
Cory Ross, he had a great game running the ball," he said. Beck mentioned that even in the early
stages of transition into Bill Callahan's West Coast Offense, things are
starting to take shape. "You see
the flashes of ability to move the football and once everything falls into sync,
that's gonna be a dangerous offense," he said.
already getting excited for his collegiate experience. "It's gonna be interesting being on my
own, making decisions for myself.
Doing all those things on your own, that'll be fun. Enjoying the life, the atmosphere, the
people and see how you can handle the situations, it's going to be fun," Beck
said. As far as playing in any
All-Star games, Beck said that he decided against the county all-star game so
that others who hadn't gotten much recruiting exposure could benefit. One thing is for sure, Harrison Beck is
ready to spring into action once he sets foot in Lincoln, Nebraska as a
