Cole Beasley gets his high school jersey retired

October, 6, 2012
IRVING, Texas -- On Friday night, Cole Beasley's No. 11 jersey was retired at Little Elm High School.

Beasley, the Cowboys' rookie wide receiver, rushed for 1,184 yards and 12 touchdowns while also passing for 1,570 yards and 12 touchdowns in his senior season at Little Elm.

In his last three high school games, Beasley rushed 60 times for 430 yards and five touchdowns.

"It's an honor to get your jersey retired from any place really," Beasley said prior to the ceremony. "It's a great opportunity to go back to my high school, and hopefully they appreciate me a little bit and don't hate me."

Beasley chose the bye week to get his jersey retired and his school responded with a solid 49-14 victory over Frisco Liberty.
