    Great Story on ISU Alum Jesse Beckom and his Olympic Dream

    He is trying to make it as a Bobsledder. It would be sweet if we could get one of the local reporters to do a story.

    Wow. I remember him back in circa 2002 or 2003. He was done playing football then, but worked out at Lied like a mad man.

    I too remember him sticking around a year or 2 after he was done playing and working out like a mad man as you say. I talked to him on occsaion at the rec (mainly cause I will talk to just about anyone :) ) and if I remember correctly he was trying to get a shot in the CFL, at least at that time.

    In the article it says he was back at ISU getting his Master's. He was always very humble and a really nice guy.
