Despite his ability to play the game, football isn't all-consuming for Beck. He's the oldest of six children (the youngest is three months old) and spending time with his little brothers and sister is a priority.
"We got them all Arkansas jerseys when I committed," he said. "And they wear them pretty much every day."
He also works on the family farm and is part of the Vo-Ag program at Nowata (Beck shows steers and a pig, is a poultry judge and does cattle grading). What's more, he's very involved with Special Olympics, working the annual meet in Stillwater, working at car washes and volunteering his time to the cause.
Beck's inspiration to get involved is a classmate he's known since the two were children.
"Trenton Weirather, he's like the biggest Nowata Ironmen fan ever," said Beck. "He's great."
Being able to juggle so many things on his agenda, it's little wonder college coaches figure he can adapt to changes.
"Everyone's dream is to play Division I football," he said. "I'm going to get to live it, so I'll make it work whatever I need to do and wherever I need to play."

Did you know?: Beck lived in Stillwater until the third grade and, naturally, Oklahoma State was his team. However, the Cowboys didn't show the same interest of all the other schools recruiting Beck.
"I guess they didn't like me," Beck joked. "It all worked out because I love everything about Arkansas, but, yeah, I was the biggest OSU fan."
