A little history on Doug and how he got to this position:
Originally from North Carolina, Doug moved to Rochester and adopted it as his home when he started his career as a professional football player on the Rochester Raiders. While playing on the Raiders, Doug caught the eye of the Rochester Greywolves and was brought in as a defenseman. After the Greywolves folded, Beck was so passionate about keeping CanAm lacrosse in Western New York, he was part of the initial group that brought you the Rochester River Monsters lacrosse team.

Community and service are a big part of who Doug is so when he isn’t working as a sales floor manager at Victor Chevrolet, he chooses to give his time to coach our Rochester River Monsters youth teams and Rush Henrietta’s youth football. Beck is the proud fur father of Sora and Benelli. He is also a collector of comic books and avid outdoorsman – hunting and fishing when not working towards River Monster success.
