Drew is originally from Sanford, Florida. He grew up playing baseball and football at Seminole High School of Sanford. During his senior year in high school he tore his ACL which led to the loss of many Division 1 opportunities for football and missing his senior year in baseball. However, even with the injury Drew was still awarded a full scholarship for both sports to Ottawa University in Kansas. After his sophomore year he gave up baseball and transferred to Lindenwood University in St. Louis, MO for football only where he earned a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration. Being a 4 year starter in college, All Conference and Two Special Teams Player of the year awards he had a few NFL opportunities before suffering a 4th ACL injury that ultimately ended his playing career. With his injuries preventing him from a career in the NFL, Drew realized helping young athletes stay safe from injury was becoming his passion. He continued his studies at University of Texas at Arlington and Texas Christian University (TCU) and received a Masters in Exercise Physiology. While earning his masters degree he held camps for Highland Park High School in Dallas, TX with Performance Course and helped coach the Football, Baseball, Soccer, Tennis, Swim and Dive teams at Texas Christian University (TCU). Soon after, Drew was offered an opportunity at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, GA as a strength and conditioning coach working with Baseball, Softball, Volleyball, Women's Basketball and Cross Country. After a few years, Drew noticed the demand for Strength Coaches in the area and turned his focus on younger athletes, founding Beatty Strength.
Drew and his wife, Lia, have 4 kids which motivates him to be a better person and role model everyday.
