Most people recognize Beckham from his time on the UK basketball team — specifically when it won the 2012 National Championship. He said his strongest memory is working with his teammates, and he keeps up with most of them today.
“That brotherhood at Kentucky is unlike anything you will ever experience in your life,” Beckham said.
After graduating, Beckham began to explore other passions outside of basketball, when he discovered a passion for writing. He self-published multiple books after graduating from UK with a bachelor’s degree in communication.
“Pressure” and “Full Court Press — Conquering Adversity Under Pressure” are inspirational stories self-published by Beckham. He said that he is the type of person to create his own opportunities instead of waiting for others.
Beckham is the president of IvisonPress, a self-published author, NBA agent, International Basketball Federation agent and a motivational speaker.
