Major Plans for Major Bellamy

Central Gwinnett is coming off one of it’s best seasons in a long time and WR Major Bellamy is looking to build off that and help lead his team to the State Playoffs in consecutive seasons. Bellamy will be the leader for the Black Knights this season after losing Adonis Thomas and Eric Forest to the Collegiate level and 2016 OL EJ Price transferred to local rival Archer High School. Bellamy is no stranger to leading his team on the field. Last season Major recorded 1220 yards on 77 receptions which not only led the Black Knights, he led the entire Gwinnett County in both categories. He recorded 8 Td’s and tallied 15.8 yards per catch which was third only behind 4 star receivers Josh Imatorbhebhe (North Gwinnett) and Kyle Davis (Archer).

After Major’s impressive Junior campaign he picked up his first college Scholarship from Georgia State in mid-January. Just over a week later Miami University Ohio came knocking at the door. I asked Major how did he feel about the Miami Ohio offer, he said “I feel good about it, I talked to Coach Martin and it seems he has some good things planned”. During this offseason Bellamy says he has been working on being more explosive and becoming more efficient at route running. Major attended the Nike Opening Regionals in Atlanta last month where he recorded the 7th fastest 40 time at a blazing 4.54. The time wasn’t good enough for the standout receiver as he tweeted “Disappointed in my 40 Time” shortly after the event. A lot of kids would give anything to have a 4.54 forty yard dash but it goes to show the kind of competitor Major is as he strives to get better everyday. When asked about what his dream offer would be he stated “Florida State & Miami”. As he continues to work on his craft and perform under the Friday Night Lights as he did last season,
those dreams can easily turn in to realities..
