Brian Bever was born October 11, 1968 in Baltimore, son of Judy and the late Keith Bever. He has two sisters Beverly and Candy. A graduate of Sparrows Point high school, he spent the majority of his early life in Baltimore County, before moving to Harford County, where he currently resides with his wife Christine, daughters Taylor, Madison, Jordyn and son Brooks, (and dog max).
It was in Brian’s early years in Sparrows Point, that he started his first love of sport, baseball. Having played little league ball from ages 6-16 (including playing for BWBA Hall of Famer Jessie Eyer), his summer days always included a bat and a ball. Brian continued to play athletics for rec council and eventually high school baseball and basketball.
At age eleven, his parents introduced him to the world of bowling, taking him to their league night Bowling has been in his life ever since. At age 14 he bowled his first 300 game, during a Junior Bowlers Tour tournament in New Jersey.
He also posted his first 700 series (727) that same year.
Brian went on to have a distinctive youth bowling career up and down the east coast , including high average for all youth bowlers in the state for three consecutive years, as well as amassing a number of tournament titles. He takes most pride in representing Maryland; in the 1985 Youth games held in New York, and coming away with gold medals in team and singles. A truly great youth experience was representing Maryland once again, in the Coca-Cola nationals in the mid eighties, finishing 4 th out of a couple hundred bowlers.
Shortly after graduating high school, Brian went to work for Faball enterprises, maker of Hammer brand bowling balls. Having spent 16 years with the company, he worked in every facet of the business, before eventually becoming national sales manager. Faball was sold in 2002, which directed him to his current employer KR Strikeforce, industry leader in bowling bags and accessories.
Brian has continued to bowl in the greater Baltimore area for over 25 years, amassing numerous titles, honor scores, and most importantly friends and relationships. He now spends most of his weekend time with his family, but enjoys getting with old and new friends for an occasional tournament.
The Cecil Harford USBC Bowling Association is proud to induct Brian Bever to their Hall of Fame in the categories of Superior Performance.
