Beau Green from Turlock, Calif., is a young man on a mission. The 2022 quarterback was named to Youth1’s Freshman450 and proved why he was more than deserving of that honor when playing for Downey High School in Modesto, Calif. As a freshman, he started for the varsity team and threw for a combined 1,000 yards and 20 touchdowns in his first four games, with a quarterback rating of 109.3.
Unfortunately, he suffered a shoulder injury during his fifth game that put him on the shelf for the rest of the season. The injury required five months of rehabilitation and eventually surgery. Green, now 6’2” and 210 lbs., is working hard at rehabbing and coming back better than ever, despite the rough road he’s traveled.
“This entire offseason has been very difficult,” he said. “However, I am currently rehabbing, hoping to return sometime this season."
When he does return, look out: Green has been an impressive QB well before he began playing for Downey High. He has a multitude of achievements, including two-time Max Preps Player of the Game; two-time Front Row Preps Player of the Game; and Blackhat Football Player of the Week.
He has also been a part of the National U.S. Army Combine, the USA National Team, Polynesian Bowl Combine, Elite 11 Academy, Rise & Fire Quarterback Camp and more. Even before taking a snap for Downey High, his reputation as a big-time playmaker preceded him.
His long-term focus remains constant—playing Power 5 college football. “That’s been my goal since I was 7 years old and has never changed,” he said. His Youth1 profile also states that he’s aiming for a Division 1 scholarship. So far, it looks like his goal is coming true—on Twitter, he announced that he’s received his first Division 1 offer from William & Mary.
Green’s talent and accomplishments have also attracted the attention of numerous football-recruiting websites, so there should be additional offers in the future, as well.
Green admires the talents of the Cleveland Browns’ Baker Mayfield, citing his ability to both throw and run, as well as making plays using his athletic ability. His current highlight video from the 2018 football season shows that he shares the same traits as Mayfield, sporting a rifle arm, accuracy, pocket presence and running speed.
When asked who has been his biggest inspiration during this tough time, he replied, “My family is definitely my biggest inspiration. They have been so supportive during this challenging and difficult time with my shoulder rehabilitation, and I appreciate all of their love and support.”
For now, he is maintaining a positive attitude while he continues his comeback and heads toward a very promising tomorrow.
“I am so excited to get back to work and look forward to the future,” he said.
