My Brother's a Rock Star...

Seriously, complete with a rock star quality following of family and friends. (and even strangers--a restaurant employee asked for his autograph yesterday and a little boy came to his game wearing a shirt that read: "Beebe's #1 fan")
Of course I love my brother even if he didn't do anything special...BUT he's a great brother and has done some pretty awesome stuff lately.  Needless to say I'm very proud of him and I think he deserves to be bragged on a little...
Monica Beebe

He was named valedictorian of his high school and will be giving the speech at his graduation on Saturday.  (cue the waterworks)

Last week he was also named Gatorade's South Carolina boys soccer player of the year.  One male player out of the whole state and all schools public and private.  You can read the article here

This spring he signed with the University of South Carolina-Go Gamecocks!  He doesn't like to brag about it, but I know how big of a deal it is to play a sport at a division one school (and get into honor's program!)  Read here.  

Making it official
Last year he was named The Post and Courier boys soccer player of the year and ESPN on the Rise Players of 2010. (read more here and here)

He's won 4 State Championships for his high school, Pinewood Prep.
Watch a video interview/highlight reel here.

While playing for Pinewood he played with some teammates who became his brothers and in turn my adopted little brothers.  These boys are inseparable and I couldn't talk about Robert if I didn't also talk about them.  My Mom jokes that together they all have one brain and need each other to think of all their great ideas!  I've loved watching them play together and am very proud of all of them as well!

I am so proud of you and I cannot wait for you to be a Gamecock with me!
Love (one of your) Very Proud Big Sisters


  1. I have a comment. Why are you up at 5:51 AM writing on your blog?

  2. What?... That wasn't written at 6:19am. Do you post this blog from the Pacific Time Zone? How is that possible? I just saw you yesterday. That would be impossi... wait a second. Do you have a teleportation device? If so, where have you been? Can I borrow it? I would really like to go to Reds' game next week in Philly, but I don't want to drive. Maybe you could teleport me. Look at me, I "babbling"... HaHaHa. (See what I did there?). We can talk about this later.
