CWA senior signs letter of intent to play Division I football at Yale
Beau Iverson of Lakewood, a senior at Charles Wright Academy, Wednesday signed a letter of intent to play Division I football for the Bulldogs at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. The Ivy League team is one of the oldest football programs in the country, dating back to 1872, and has recorded 865 wins, the second most in NCAA history.
Iverson is a Charles Wright “lifer” who has attended the school since pre-K. His teachers describe him as quiet, thoughtful, and insightful in the classroom. He has earned high grades while taking multiple Advanced Placement courses. He volunteers at the Boys and Girls Club and sings in the school’s auditioned choir.
Iverson has played under CWA Tarrier football coached by Mike Finch and Neil Biermann for the past four years as a tight end and defensive end. At six-foot-nine and 265 pounds, he is an imposing figure on both offensive and defense and earned all-league honors in both roles. In his senior season, he recorded 30 tackles, four sacks, and 220 yards receiving.
Among the many honors Iverson has earned as a Tarrier, he was named Nisqually League MVP in 2012, named to the Associated Press All-State team for defensive line, and will represent the west in the East vs. West All-State Game on June 22 in Yakima.
Iverson is one of four seniors graduating from Charles Wright this year with plans to play college football.
