As Kalvaraz Bessent begins his career as a member of Auburn’s football team, he’s doing so knowing he’ll be one of the most heavily scrutinized incoming freshmen following an “embarrassing” arrest in February.
“He’s just going to go and play football,” Kalvaraz’s father, Timothy Bessent, told the Opelika-Auburn News on Friday. Kalvaraz wasn’t available for comment as of Sunday afternoon. “There’ll be doubters and people with their own opinion, but the one thing is, he’s still a child and I told him the way to approach it is to live it down. You can’t run from it, you can’t hide from it, but you can live it down.
