Dorial Green-Beckham releases statement: ‘I have been young and dumb’

NCAA Football: Tennessee at Missouri

The father of Missouri receiver Dorial Green-Beckham called the Post-Dispatch Friday to read a statement made by his son. DGB is currently indefinitely suspended from the team, but the Columbia Police released a statement yesterday that said he would not be arrested for an incident that happened early Sunday morning, although the details were very concerning.

Green-Beckham’s father, John Beckham, said Dorial wrote his own statement, and it read as follows:

“First and most importantly, I take responsibly for my conduct and my mistakes. Don’t blame my girlfriend or her friends for anything. I am not looking for sympathy. I thank those who have given me concern. I have been young and dumb. I want to be better. During my suspension I’m entering counseling. With help, I know I can be stronger emotionally and spiritually. My relationship with God, my family, friends, teammates and coaches are most important in my life, not football. It may not be possible to fix everything, but it won’t be for not trying. — Dorial Green Beckham”

Let’s all hope DGB gets the help he needs, and he truly changes his life, whether he ever plays football again or not.

  • Makes me want to give him a blog hug, and tell him as a football follower, that if he really means what he writes and doesn’t forget, he will make it to his dreams.
