An honors graduate of Metro Christian Academy — where he was named District Lineman of the Year, among many honors — Bewley Wales of Tulsa just entered his senior season at Columbia University in New York City. This will mark the fourth consecutive year in which he has played a different position. He also was voted team captain by his teammates.
Wales has no problem staying busy in the Big Apple. Along with football, the political science major serves as president of Sigma Chi Fraternity. Though he isn’t sure what the future holds, Wales says he would like to stay in New York for a few years after graduation and work in the city.
The son of Rich and Sally Wales of Tulsa, he shares a special bond with his father. Rich played football at the University of Tulsa, where he started at linebacker for three years.
“His experience helped me understand some of the opportunities and lessons that playing college football can provide,” Wales says. “We talk about football all the time. He’s definitely one of Columbia’s biggest fans now.”
