Kemuel has been playing for four years and just completed his grade eleven year with the Dartmouth High Spartans of the Nova Scotia Student Athletic Federation Football League (NSSAFFL).

Kemuel is surrounded by great people that encourage his success.

“The most influential people in my life are my mother and my older brother,” says the Spartans standout.  “I look up to him so much.”

On the field, Beals also has good role models including Dalhousie Tigers (Atlantic Football League) defensive line coach Mark Haggett. However, when there is a a gridiron issue he has no problems speaking with his coach, Jason Warren.

“He gives me these life lessons that teach me so much and I’m speechless when it comes to Jay because he’s more than just a football coach,” explains Kemuel.

While he still has one more year left of high school before the transition to university, he is beginning to look at his options.

“The school that am really considering going to is StFx,” says the Spartans standout of the recruitment process.  “SMU is another school I haven’t committed to either because I still have a full year to decide.”

“The recruitment process has been good me and Coach [Ryan] Clutterbuck from Western was having a conversation about me attending Western.”

In the interim, Kemuel is sticking to a strict workout regime.

“I am in the gym every day – Monday is shoulders and arms, Tuesday is legs, Wednesday is cardio, Thursday is chest and I end the week with back on Fridays,” the Spartans’ standout explains.

Overall, Kemuel understands it’s a team game and he wants to be a big part of group success.

“Team success is the ultimate goal; however, I also want to be recognized as the top defensive lineman coming out of Nova Scotia,” adds Kemuel.
