The Beaver Local Beavers held their signings today for their student-athletes.  We wish Garrett Givens all the best in his future endeavors, and thank him for allowing us to share in their big day!  Good luck at the next level, Garrett.  We’ll be cheering for you!

Garrett is the son of Ron and Tina Givens.  Garrett’s high school athletic activities include football and wrestling.  In football, Garrett was a 4-year starter for the Beavers and served as team captain for 3 years.  He was also a 4-year varsity letter winner.  Garrett was named First Team Quad County, First Team Buckeye 8, Second Team All-District, OVAC Honorable Mention, Special Mention Eastern District, and Honorable Mention all-state.  Garrett holds the Beaver Local school record for most touchdowns(5), rushing and carries in a single game.   Garrett’s student activities include Leo Club, Outdoor Adventure Club, 2 years as Class President and a 2018 Buckeye Boys State attendee.  Garrett’s plans are to continue his football career at Wheeling Jesuit University where he plans to major in Business Management.


There was a saying in Cleveland a few seasons ago that said: “Nothing is given, everything is earned in Northeast Ohio.”  For Beaver Local Beaver power back, Garrett Givens- truer words have never been spoken.

For Givens, he’s earned every rep he’s ever taken for the red and white, and after a disappointing loss last week, Double G is standing tall and ready for Week 3!

Our Michael McKenzie caught up with Garrett to discuss the mentality of the team, and how to generate more offense against Shenandoah to come out with a winning record moving into next week.

All that and more on this week’s Beaver Local Player Profile: EVERYTHING IS EARNED FOR GIVENS!
