Early life and family
Terron F. Beckham was born on 28 July 1992, in Dallas, Texas USA so under the sign of Leo and holding American nationality. Almost nothing is known about his family, except that his father, Terry Beckham, was a great football player when he was in high school, and later became a prominent track & field athlete at Morehead State University, and he still holds the school triple jump record, so Terron inherited his passion for sports.

His mother, Jerri Fondren, was also keen on sport at a young age, making basketball her main passion. Terron has a sister, whose name is unavailable. It is also worth mentioning that Terron is a cousin of Odell Beckham Jr., a New York Giants receiver, a famous American Football player and celebrity. However, Terron and Odell weren’t close enough from the very beginning, as Odell lived in Louisiana, and they almost never saw each other. Terron was into sports from his childhood, good not only at football, but also at basketball and swimming.
Educational background and financial troubles
Terron studied at Richardson High School in Dallas – they take it seriously when it comes to football there in Dallas. Terron shared in his interview to Stack in 2016: ‘High school is basically college football. Every high school has a stadium, everything’s huge, everything’s big. They do a really good job of pumping up football down there’. However, soon he had to transfer to Maryland, as his parents separated, struggling with more and more financial issues. Being a kid, Terron couldn’t but think that he was the real reason for his parents’ fights, so he decided to move to his aunt and uncle’s house in Fort Meade, Maryland.
He decided that living in the military family would be great for his character and life, so everyone agreed it was the best step. So, Terron matriculated from Fort Meade High School in 2010. Though he didn’t get any offers from Division I programs, Stevenson University (a Division III nearby school) in Owings Mills, Maryland contacted him as they were highly interested in working with him. When Terron understood he had nothing to pay with for his tuition, at first he thought that Stevenson University would take care of his troubles, however, it turned out he only got help in the form of student loans.
So at that moment he had two types of loans and had no chance of paying them off however hard he tried. ‘I moved from room to room throughout the semester trying to find somewhere to stay. I ended up having to give up football to work and to pay for the rest of school’, Terron said, describing his hard times. He quit Stevenson University after the first semester.
Owing quite a big sum to Stevenson University, Terron couldn’t enroll at any other school, so he started working at GameStop as a sales-assistant, then at Best Buy and Hollister.
He also started going to the gym as he wanted to be ready for playing football if he was offered. However, he didn’t only wait for the opportunities to find him; he started participating in physique competitions and got some work as a personal trainer and fitness model. In 2012 he started posting his photos on Instagram as his body started looking outstanding. ‘When I was on my own and I’d see these huge fitness people, I thought, ‘Alright, I gotta do something that’s going to go viral and really make people think this guy’s crazy’, Terron says about his motivation to post more photos on his Instagram profile. His fitness trainer and modelling career showed good results, so Terron got a chance to move to New York City.
In 2015 Terron participated in Mr. Olympia Fitness and Performance Expo, where he was noticed by the Owner and CEO of TEST Football Academy, Kevin Dunn. Terron was offered a position on the team and accepted the opportunity, moving to Martinsville, New Jersey. Although having impressive athleticism, Terron had trouble with agility and flexibility; he was also recommended to lose some weight. He played for some time in TEST, however, he quit later, then tried to get back to a football career, enrolling at Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas, though he quit again.
