Offensive tackle Matt Beyer (San Antonio/Reagan) is not making any excuses. He isn’t harboring any resentment.

The reason his recruiting didn’t take off initially was because of what he did to himself last summer. If it’s possible, Beyer overworked himself. He wanted so badly to get bigger and stronger that he stopped listening to his body.

During offseason workouts, Beyer said he was getting tired while lifting. And then it was just a domino effect. Fatigue led to bad form. Bad form led to injury. An injury that never really went away during the 2011 season.

Beyer suffered an incomplete fracture of the L5 vertebrae and was forced to watch most of the 2011 season from the sidelines.
