    “He’s a phenomenal locker room presence,” said Nelson Stewart, Beckham’s high school coach from Isidore Newman in New Orleans, The Baltimore Sun reports. “He makes your team better. He leads by example. His football IQ is off the charts.”

    Stewart added, “He wasn’t a spotlight seeker [growing up]. In high school, he didn’t like doing interviews. He was so young [when he became a star in the NFL]; he was in his early 20s and didn’t know how to navigate it. Every moment, the cameras were on him. Passion can get viewed one way, but he’s a guy who wants to win and he’s passionate about it. It matters so much to him.”

    Now that Beckham is a 30-year-old father and star athlete, Stewart sees a different side of him.

    “When he came into the league, everything went right, then he got hurt and battled adversity,” Stewart said. “It hardened him, having that much success and then going to Cleveland and being hurt [and that not working out] and then tasting [success] again with the Rams. He’s shown an ability to get off the mat. He’s more mature now, has life perspective.”
