City College quarterback Ron Beverly, 20, has been around the game of football since he was just 2 years old, having grown up in a football family.

“I was around it every day,” he says. “That’s all I was around.”

His father, Ron Sr., was a coach at Solano Community College, where Beverly played last season before the school’s football program was cut. He was always at his father’s practices and when he became old enough, he worked as a ball boy.

“My biggest influences are my brother, [Joseph] and my father [Ron],” he says of his football backround.

After the program was cut at Solano, Beverly, a criminal justice major, said he weighed his options and decided to move to Sacramento to play football for City College.

He has only lived in Sacramento for two months, but his coaches and teammates say he is already helping to turn around a team well known for its football program.

“He’s still growing right now and has some things to learn but for the most part he’s helped this program out a lot,” says head coach Dannie Walker.

On the field, Beverly says his main inspiration is Brett Favre.

“He’s an iron man,” he says of the NFL great’s toughness on the field.

He also brings up the countless records Favre holds as further testament to his skills.

Beverly says he hopes to amass his own records. He is currently ranked as the third leading passer in the state according to the California Community College Association, but he is determined to be even better.

“The goal is number one in state before the season’s done,” he says. “It’s still early in the season.”

Offensive Coordinator Corey Fipps says he believes that the team’s offense is well suited for Beverly’s skillset.

“[It’s] a very quarterback-friendly system,” Fipps says.

Beverly calls his team’s offense an “air show” because of the pass-friendly system.

Although the team has recovered from two early losses with three wins, Beverly believes the team is still young and “learning on the fl y” since the system has only been in place for seven weeks. Fipps, though, believes that
they have the right guy.

“Ron’s a great quarterback… a solid guy from a character point of view,” says Fipps. “You gotta have somebody who’s willing to put the work in, who’s trustworthy… especially when you’re throwing the ball 50-60 times a game.”

On the field Beverly says he’s “loose” and his teammate, offensive lineman Kameron Kind agrees describing his quarterback as “calm.”

“I think Cam Newton taught me that [since] he’s out there smiling all the time,” says Beverly.

When he’s not playing football Beverly enjoys listening to music, such as Wale and Kanye West, as well as playing video games and collecting shoes. He jokes that due to his hectic schedule his favorite activity is sleeping.

He is a diehard San Francisco 49ers fan, making sure to stress that he was a fan “before the success” as well as a USC Trojans fan. A very goal-oriented player, he says hopes his success at City College leads him to playing in a higher division on the collegiate level.

“I’d like to go to a Division 1 Pac 12 school,” he says.

Walker says he believes the hard work will pay off.

“I think he’s going to go on and play at the four year level and be successful,” he says.
