Belcher, 25, played football and wrestled at West Babylon High School. Belcher lined up as a linebacker, offensive tackle, nose guard and fullback for the Eagles.

According to this recent article by Chiefs Insider Reid Ferrin, Belcher was a four-year starter for the Maine Black Bears and was not picked in the 2009 NFL Draft. Kansas City signed Belcher as an undrafted rookie using him mainly as a practice squad player and on special teams.

Four years later, Belcher developed into an everyday player for the Chiefs, who has featured him in the starting lineup in every game since 2011.
