IMG Academy
Phil Demkos presents the Gatorade G-Award to Joseph Beaver

Joseph Beaver of Belmont, Texas was selected as the IMG Academy Boys Soccer Gatorade G-Award recipient for the week of June 3. Now 17-years old, he has been playing soccer since the age of four.  Beaver, a center-midfielder, is coached by Brian Arendale. His favorite thing about IMG Academy is the soccer camps, because they're fun and helps him improve his soccer skills. As a pre-game ritual, Joseph always puts on his left sock first, as well as his right shoe first. He is most inspired by Barcelona FC's Lionel Messi because of his perseverance. After winning a game, Joseph celebrates with his friends by going out to eat. What pushes Beaver to push through a tough practice is knowing that hard work pays off and produces wins.
