Panther Creek was 5-7 in 2009, but behind a strong group led by Beilinson the Panthers finished 13-2 with a deep run into the state playoffs.
"We had a great year," said Beilinson. "We improved a lot from the previous season, and I think we're going to do well my senior year too.
"We have a solid group coming back... we have our whole offensive line and all our wide receivers, but we'll have a new backfield. I think we're going to be good."
Beilinson proved to be a difference maker. Checking in at 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, the talented tight end was used in a variety of ways. He finished the year with 37 catches for 553 yards and two touchdowns and was a reliable weapon in Panther Creek's passing attack.
"I feel like I run very good routes and I read defenses well," he stated. "I have good hands and will always catch a catchable ball. I think I'm a solid blocker.
"I know I still need to get stronger, that's what I'm working on. I've been hitting the weights."
Last summer Beilinson attended a couple of college camps but hopes to check out several more this year.
"I only went to UNC and NC State for camps, but this summer I plan on hitting a little more colleges," he said. "I want to get to some one-day camps and try to get my name out there.
"With the two camps I went to, I thought they were pretty good. I definitely enjoyed NC State a lot. UNC was a solid camp too though."
NC State maintained contact with Beilinson following camp and hosted him for a trio of games in the fall.
"As far as unofficial visits I went to three NC State games," he said. "That was great. They always have a full stadium, and it's definitely a place I would consider playing.
"I enjoyed their coaching staff. I got to know them pretty well. I like them, and it looks like they like me."
Beilinson stated that he was intrigued by the Wolfpack's offense, particularly how they use standout tight end George Bryan, a two-time All-ACC selection. Beilinson believes they are similar players, and that has also raised his interest in NC State.
"Watching them play, it actually caught my eye how similar we are," said Beilinson. "I got to meet him too after a game, talked to him for a little bit. He seemed like a real good guy."
Beilinson says he hasn't received any official offers, and he likely won't make an early decision. He is still in the process of sending out film to different colleges and plans on checking out a variety of schools before selecting a program.
"NC State is looking pretty interested right now," he said. "Wake Forest has been asking, Stanford too, but nothing that big yet.
"I really don't have much of a preference. I'm thinking I might hit one or two combines and maybe a couple of junior days. I definitely have my options open right now, and I'll see who looks more interested. I think I'll wait a little longer before I make my final decision."
