Penn State All 105: LB Beckham Dee Reuniting With High School Coach

Beaver Stadium -- David Hague

All 105 is a Nittany Sports Now series profiling each Penn State football player, and this edition will take a look at walk-on linebacker Bekkem Dee.

Height: 6-foot-1 

Weight: 231 pounds

Hometown: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

Before Penn State: Dee played for current PSU Director of High School relations Bob Palko at Mt. Lebanon High School in the Pittsburgh Area.

In Dee’s sophomore season, he helped Lebo to a State Championship.

Palko coached at Lebo through the 2022 season before resigning in January, stepping back due to “personal health issues,” he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, while clarifying that he wasn’t retiring from coaching.

West Allegheny— where Palko was a quarterback in the 1970s— is where Palko spent most of his coaching career. He was there from 1995-2018, and in that time, made West A one of the WPIAL’s strongest programs. It took Palko just three seasons to make his alma mater a champion. West Allegheny won the district title in 1997 and won three more over the next four seasons. Palko ended his time at West Allegheny after the 2018 seasons with eight district championships and a state title, only missing the playoffs three times over 24 years.
