One quote from his Grandmother has deeply resonated with Beattie. “My grandmother always told me this quote growing up and it’s always stuck with me in every phase of life. “The race isn’t given to the swift nor to the strongest, but to the one who endures to the end. Ecclesiastes 9:11” In addition to playing football, Beattie has made a conscious effort to give back to the city of Memphis as an educator, mentor, coach and in his ministry of the word of GOD.
