When Georgetown played Fort Worth Brewer this past Saturday at McLane Stadium, home of the Baylor Bears, their superstar wide receiver showed that no lights are too bright for him to shine.
The 6’4 senior Beau Corrales, showed out in his first game of the season since last year’s heart breaking 70-66 loss in the second round against Boerne-Champion, a game where Corrales caught 11 passes for 168 yards and 2 td’s. He easily got around three week’s worth of stats for an average receiver in a mere seven days.
Beau established himself as QB Chandler Herman’s favorite target throughout the night and finished with an outstanding stat line of 15 catches for 201 yards and 3 touchdowns. His scoring grabs helped Georgetown light up the scoreboard en route to a 49-28 win. Corrales caught touchdown passes of 49, 14, and 32 yards, and even had a 51 yard touchdown called back due to a penalty.
Corrales has established himself as a premier wide receiver in the state of Texas and received scholarship offers from Texas State, Air Force, Army, and New Mexico. Beau decided back in June that he would commit to be a Texas State Bobcat and play under the direction of new head coach Everett Withers.
Corrales finished last season with 63 receptions for 833 yards and 4 td’s despite missing 3 games early due to a back injury. Corrales is a multi sport athlete and is also a part of Georgetown’s basketball team, and managed to get himself some hype when he posterized a defender and landed on the ESPN Top 10 Plays.
Corrales is Georgetown’s first FBS level player to receive a scholarship offer since 2005. If he can stay healthy, there’s little question that he’ll light up the scoreboard again. There is no doubt he is a special talent, and he has definitely put the state on watch after this week’s impressive performance.
