Colin Beckford has joined the Duncan Crew! Congratulations to Colin and Duncan Toys! Check out their official statement below.
Colin Beckford may only be 14 years old, but realistically, he is already a hard working man.
Competitive in multiple styles, Beckford is versatile. Though 14, he is already a Mid East Regional 3A Champion, a 2-time Ohio State 3A Champion, and a 2-time US Nationals finalist. Even with all that, he somehow still finds the time to be a top Honors student at school.
He’s got a formula, and we think we’ve figured it out:
It’s simple, really. He practices a lot, and he studies a lot.
Our guess though, is that he probably doesn’t sleep a lot.
Colin has progressed quickly, beginning to play in the spring of 2011, when he picked up a Duncan Butterfly and quickly moved on to the Freehand. As an early member of the Cleveland Yo-Yo Club, the local pros surrounding him assisted him in moving from underdog to rising young star.
Though he lives in what was once a sparse area for yo-yo play, Colin now represents a strong pillar in the ever-growing Cleveland yo-yo scene, proudly putting his home state on the yo-yo map.
Look for him this weekend at New York States, dressed in new Duncan gear, gaining valuable experience before his big showing at the National Yo-Yo Contest on October 4th.
Colin, welcome to the Crew!
