Division II Tarleton State in Stephenville, TX, averaged an impressive 34.5 PPG during a 6–4 season this year. A strong offensive output due in part to the first-year coach of the Texans’ wide receivers.
Former Kansas State QB Jonathan Beasley knows a thing or two about big offensive numbers. More than a decade since he left the Little Apple, Beasley still holds Wildcat records for most yards per completion for a game (23.9), season (20.1) and career (17.9).
Thanks to his tutelage, six Tarleton State players enjoyed seasons of at least 20 receptions or 200 receiving yards.
Prior to his arrival in Stephenville, Beasley had worked as a graduate assistant at his alma mater (2009–2011) and as the wide receivers coach at Montana State (2007–2008). This followed a five-year professional career as a player that took him to the NFL and CFL, among other leagues.
With the Wildcats, Beasley was a two year starter (1999–2000) and earned MVP honors in the ’99 Holiday Bowl and 2001 Cotton Bowl. K-State hosts Texas in its regular season finale on Saturday. Jonathan Beasley profile
