2014 Ray Guy Award Candidate

2014 Outlook: Enters his third season as Florida State’s starting punter looking to build on his veteran experience and become even more of a weapon in the Seminoles’ special teams. Has only had two of his 89 career punts blocked and none in 2013. Also serves as the holder on the nation’s top placekicking unit in which Roberto Aguayo set the national record for points by a kicker in 2013.

2013: Seminoles starting punter the last two seasons...improved his average by nearly three yards this year (38.3 to 41.1)...only surrendered two touchbacks in 2013 and four in his career...12 of his 42 punts were downed inside the 20-yard line...best game came versus Duke in the ACC Championship where he had a career long 59 yard punt and two of his four punts downed inside the 20 while playing in his hometown of Charlotte...tied a career high with six punts, with two downed inside the 20, at Wake Forest...matched career high with six punts for a career high 257 yards (42.8 average) versus Auburn in the BCS National Championship Game including a 55-yard punt…had six punts of 50 yards or more…did not have a punt blocked.

2012: Played in all 14 games as a freshman...only eight of his 47 punts were returned for a total of 87 yards...23 of his 47 punts were placed inside the 20-yard line...downed nine punts inside the 10-yard line...only recorded two touchbacks on the season...posted a career-long 54 yard punt against Florida...averaged 38.3 yards per punt on the season...FSU’s defense only had to make five tackles on his 49 punts as either the punt was out of bounds, downed, fair caught or the receiver ran out of bounds....helped FSU’s defense as teams scored only 20.4 percent of the time following a Beatty punt (10-49 with five TD’s and five FG’s)...five of those scoring drives were of 60+ yards and seven were of 50+ yards.

PERSONAL: Started his high school career as a quarterback before picking up punting as a junior in 2010 and excelling at that position...earned first team All-Mecklenburg County honors by the Charlotte Observer as a senior while averaging 43.1 yards per punt on 32 attempts and hitting four punts longer than 60 yards...named MEGA 7 3A/4A all-conference by the Charlotte Observer as a junior and senior...threw for more than 800 yards as a junior quarterback but shined that season as a punter averaging 43.5 yards per attempt on his way to All-Mecklenburg County second team honors by the Charlotte Observer...rated the No. 3 punter nationally by kicking guru Chris Sailer of California...two-star prospect by Rivals, a three-star prospect by ESPN and Scout...ranked the No. 4 punter nationally by Scout.com and No. 5 punter nationally by 247Sports...has an older brother, Lucas, who played quarterback at Gardner-Webb in Boiling Springs, N.C.
