Antwynn Beavers (Liberty, Mo./Liberty North) has the nickname “The Bullet” on his junior highlight tape. The first play on the tape gives an idea why the nickname fits.

Beavers, a 5-foot-8, 170-pound running back, quickly caught the attention of those watching with the very first play, a 99-yard sprint on a handoff to the end zone. He used his speed to rush for 2,239 yards and 21 touchdowns his junior season.

Beavers, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds, is now starting to begin the recruiting process, and he’s receiving early looks from Iowa, Northern Illinois, South Dakota and North Dakota.
