The (Foundation name), is a non-profit organization, created to raise funds to
build a multi-purpose sport and activity center at Washington Public Schools.
This facility will benefit every sport at Washington School, including
activities such as marching band. In December of 2011, the community lost two
avid Washington Warrior supporters; when cousins, Rocky and Scott Beller, lost
their lives in a tragic plane crash. The (foundation) was established to
continue their legacy, by providing a facility for the community, the school and
the activities they held so dearly to their hearts.
The Beller family legacy has been one of humility, support, honor and giving.
Many would say the legacy began with Scott’s father and Rocky’s uncle, Calvin
Beller. Calvin was responsible for helping bring little league football to
Washington. He, along with others, created a tradition of respected
sportsmanship to the area. Calvin loved the youth and he believed in his
Warriors. For over twenty years, he coached many, including Scott and Rocky.
He taught all players the love of the game and the character needed to excel on
and off the field. In 2004, Calvin passed away from liver disease, but his
legacy lived on through many, including Rocky and Scott. Rocky Beller was born
and raised in the Goldsby/Washington area. He attended Washington Schools and
participated in many activities, including football. Rocky was an avid Warrior
fan. Not only was he passionate about supporting his children and their
activities, he supported many relatives and members of the Washington community.
Rocky coached little league and he wanted kids to find the love of God through
the love of sports and he humbly gave of himself. Rocky and Scott were so
extremely proud when, in the fall of 2009, Rocky's eldest son, Brad Beller,
became the head football coach of the Washington Warriors. They watched with
such pride as Brad and the Warriors played on Friday nights. They were
anticipating the future of the football program and enjoyed watching Brad's
passion and knowledge of the game transpire through the young men on the team.
Scott Beller was known as “the voice of the Washington Warriors”. For years,
during various Washington sporting events, fans could tune into the local radio
station and hear his enthusiasm and passion through his commentary. Scott also
attended Washington Schools and played football. Later in his life, he coached
little league football, softball and baseball for many years. He was so honored
to be called a coach. Scott taught many kids, including his own children, the
love and discipline of being an athlete. He lived by the motto, “work hard, play
hard”. He unselfishly gave of himself because he, like Calvin and Rocky, loved
the youth and loved the Warriors. All three of these men were the definition of
a true Warrior.
Now it is up to all of us to carry on their Legacy. By contributing to the
Washington Multi-purpose Facility Project, your tax deductable donation will
help provide a multi-purpose sports and activity complex that will serve many
for generations to come. “Tradition never graduates” now, may the “legacy never
die”. Thank you for your support.
