Beatty Says

“Everyone seemed excited for the season and the vibe was awesome, they really want to win and you can feel that everywhere. The facilities there were unbelievable. I have not seen anything close to the indoor that left me in shock, it was absolutely beautiful.”


Mack Brown Says

“Another young man that wants to be a dentist. He is really tough, a good pass rusher, he’s from Central Catholic in Pittsburgh… One of the top players in Pennsylvania, Jay Bateman had known about him through Army. First-team all-state, had 25 sacks over his final two seasons.”


Deana Says

Aaron is going to be a vital part of the defensive front for the Tar Heels. He has some versatility and quickness because he also played tight end in high school.”
