In an article titled, “How Jacksonville Jaguars’ Offensive Lineman Kelvin Beachum Leverages LinkedIn,” Beachum credits Charlie Batch’s advice and ongoing LinkedIn strategies with helping him succeed beyond football.

The article reads, in part:

“Beachum added that when he was playing with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a rookie in 2012, he learned from now-retired NFL quarterback Charlie Batch about the inner workings of how athletes should conduct themselves away from the gridiron. Batch was a representative with the NFL Players Association at the time and according to Beachum took him under his wing about leveraging the game in the right way and making himself visible from a speaking, radio, branding and social standpoint, too.

“Even now, Beachum said he looks to Batch’s LinkedIn for guidance and insight about how to better position himself on the platform, ultimately giving him “leverage” when it comes to interacting with industry executives that he wants to do business with, either from a philanthropic or investment standpoint.”
