It’s been a long off season for Mexia native Kelvin Beachum, but no one is as anxious to get back to work and on the playing field as the second year left guard for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

We caught up with Beachum earlier this summer to find out what he’s been up to since the end of the 2012-13 NFL season.

During the off time, Beachum has spent much of it working out and getting ready for training camp. He also managed to find time to get married back in February of this year to Jessica, a 2011 Baylor University graduate.

Since relocating to Pittsburgh, Beachum has become an avid hockey fan, cheering for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Although he’s become very fond of the sport, Beachum admits he has no desire to get out on the ice anytime soon.
