My name is Beau Reilly and I just finished my career playing quarterback in the fall of 2017. I've been playing football since I was 7 years old and raised in a very athletic family that features a father that played basketball in college, three brothers that played football at the Division 1 level, a sister that throws shot put and discus in college, and a brother currently playing for the New England Patriots. During my college career at the University of Hawai'i and Texas A&M-Kingsville, I was called on many times to teach my fellow teammates, and even new coaches, about the offense we were currently running and the some of the different defenses we would see each week. Throughout my college career, I did some private sessions with high school QB's that were needing some "touch-ups" on their mechanics and helped them with their reads of the defenses that they were seeing. One of those QB's went on to play in the state championship for their school and another went to the semi-finals of the playoffs. I received many private trainings from some of the best quarterback coaches in the business including Sean Salisbury, a former NFL player, ESPN analyst, and currently a sports radio host, and Cree Morris, who is currently one of the best quarterback coaches in Southern California that also trains with Drew Brees and Carson Palmer periodically throughout the offseason. On every team that I have played on, I had built a reputation for having an advanced knowledge of the current offense that we were running and the overall game of football itself.
I went to Valley Center High School in San Diego, CA where we competed against some of the best high school teams in the country. I led my team to the CIF Championship both my junior and senior year and received All-Conference honors. I was also voted Team Captain, received the Most Inspirational Award at the end of the season, and offered a scholarship from Colorado State University. After college, I served a mission for my church in Sao Paulo, Brazil for two years and, when I finished, I started my college career at the University of Hawai'i when I found out that the coaching staff at Colorado State had been fired. Each year that I was at Hawai'i, the offensive staff was fired and each new staff brought in their own quarterbacks, which made it a little difficult to see the field. After my redshirt sophomore season, I transferred to Texas A&M-Kingsville, where I broke the school record for most passing yards in a quarter with 320 against the #5 ranked defense in the nation.
I have received the privilege and honor of being coached by some of the legendary coaches of this game including Dave Lay, Norm Chow, Nick Rolovich, Daren Wilkinson, Sean Salisbury, and Cree Morris. Dave Lay, my offensive coordinator in high school, was one of the innovators of the one-back spread offense that coached at Colorado State and San Diego State, which is where he coached Marshall Faulk. Norm Chow, my head coach at Hawai'i for two years, has coached many legendary quarterbacks including Jim McMahon, Steve Young, Ty Detmer, Steve Sarkisian, Phillip Rivers, Carson Palmer, and Matt Leinart.
