Paul Beckwith has worked with athletes of all ages and experience. Born and raised in Dillon, South Carolina, Beckwith moved to Palatka, Florida, where he was a four‐year letterman in football, wrestling, track and field and weightlifting. Following graduation, he played football at the University of South Carolina, where he was an All‐SEC performer and four‐year starter on the offensive line.
