A very excited Beau Burton tells Scout.com, just momements ago, that he has received his long overdue first scholarship offer. "I received my first offer from UNLV."
He adds, "I woke up and had a voicemail from coach Sanders (Saguaro head coach) saying congrats, who have received your first offer from UNLV."
Burton thoughts on the Rebels, "I like UNLV, they are a great school and I'm going to look close at them."
Burton, one of the most productive backs in Arizona the last three years, helping Saguaro to the last two 4AI state championships. So far this season, Burton has rushed for nearly 1,000 yards averaging over 12 yards a carry on the way to 14 rushing TDs.
Burton is relieved to finally have his first offer out of the way saying, "Oh man I have been working so hard for this. I'm happy that it is finally here. It is a great feeling."
Here are clips of Burton from this year:
