Oregon State Football: Most Valuable Player Countdown - #6 Noah Togiai

Oregon State Football: Most Valuable Player Countdown - #6 Noah Togiai

Last year’s top receiver is still recovering from injury. The College Football season is only a few weeks away, and our countdown is wrapping up. Today we cover No.6. #6: Noah Togiai - Tight End Among the Beavers offensive threats, Noah Togiai is the most battle tested. Last year, Togiai was the Beavers leader in receiving yards, with 461, and receptions, with 34. He also scored two touchdowns. After the season, he was named to the All Pac 12 Second Team. Togiai also appears to be stepping up as a leader. He was limited in spring training this year with an injury, but helped out...

Oregon State Football: Most Valuable Player Countdown - #7 Isaiah Hodgins

Isaiah Hodgins looks to become the No. 1 option The College Football season is only a few weeks away, and our countdown is wrapping up. Today we cover No. 7. #7: Isaiah Hodgins - Wide Receiver Oregon State’s lone win from the 2017 season came courtesy of an Isaiah Hodgins last minute touchdown catch against Portland State. Hodgins, the top recruit from the 2017 recruiting class, saw immediate playing time as a true freshman. He ended the season with 31 receptions for 275 yards and two touchdowns. He was mysteriously benched for a game, but was clearly one of the Beavers best receivers...

Projecting the Depth Chart vs. Ohio State

Projecting the Depth Chart vs. Ohio State

How will the depth chart end up in a couple of weeks Quarterbacks Jake Luton - #6 - Sr. - 6’7, 230 Conor Blount - #2 - R-So. - 6’1, 204 Jack Colletto - #12 - So. - 6’3, 222 Aidan Willard - #4 - R-Fr. - 6’2, 192 Nick Moore- #7 - R-Fr. - 6’0, 188 Jake Dukart - #3 - Fr. - 6’1, 177 Here’s how I view the quarterback competition two weeks from the Ohio State game. There isn’t a ton of separation between the top three guys, but I think Jake Luton ultimately wins the starting job again. There’s a contingent of BTD staffers who think Conor Blount has looked like the most...

Oregon State Football: Most Valuable Player Countdown - #8 Elu Aydon

OSU needs a monster in the middle of it’s D-Line, and Aydon could be just the guy. The College Football season is only a few weeks away, and our countdown is wrapping up. Today we cover number 8. #8: Elu Aydon - Defensive Tackle Aydon is entering his junior season. He’s started games as a redshirt freshman and as a sophomore, but this season he should get a chance to be a full-time starter. In his career so far, Aydon has 37 total tackles, 2.5 for a loss, and 1 sack. Aydon is 6’3”, and 339 lbs. As a starting DT, he’ll be expected to bulk up quite a bit, and that’s been a...

David Morris Injured, Out Indefinitely

David Morris Injured, Out Indefinitely

The dynamic safety will not be ready for the start of the season Today at practice head football coach, Jonathan Smith, gave Beaver Nation some unwelcome news. David Morris has injured his foot (separate from his previously injured foot) and will be out for quite sometime. Jonathan Smith said David Morris is out indefinitely with another foot injury. #GoBeavs— Bob Lundeberg (@The_Real_Bob) August 17, 2018 This comes as a huge blow for the Beavers who were looking to rely on David Morris and Jalen Moore to lead their inexperienced defense. Jeffery Manning Jr. will likely step into a...

Oregon State Football: Most Valuable Player Countdown - #10 Jalen Moore

The veteran safety is one of the Beavers most reliable defenders The college football season is just around the corner and Building the Dam’s countdown continues with No. 10. #10: Jalen Moore - Safety Jalen Moore, a junior safety, is a returning starter and will team up with (a hopefully fully healthy) David Morris to form an impressive duo. With both starters returning, Oregon State’s safeties are probably their most talented position group on either side of the ball. Moore has played in 22 games (16 starts) for the Beavs. He’s racked up 94 tackles and forced two fumbles. His 75...

Oregon State Football: Most Valuable Player Countdown - #11 Timmy Hernandez

The veteran receiver is looking to lead a young group of pass-catchers The college football season is just around the corner and Building the Dam’s countdown continues with No. 11. #11: Timmy Hernandez - Wide Receiver Timmy Hernandez has locked down a starting spot for this upcoming season for quite sometime now. He is last year’s leader (among WRs) in both yardage (357) and touchdowns (3). Hernandez should have a much bigger role this season with Jordan Villamin (AAF) and Seth Collins (Texas Tech) moving on. Hernandez, Isaiah Hodgins and Noah Togiai will all be reliable...

Oregon State Football: Top 5 Secondaries The Beavers Will Face In 2018

Oregon State Football: Top 5 Secondaries The Beavers Will Face In 2018

Some feared defensive back groupings await Oregon State’s offense. 1. Ohio State Buckeyes As expected, the Buckeyes bring the most feared group of defensive backs to Oregon State’s schedule, even with a not as proven unit as they’ve previously had on the field. Former Alabama player and JUCO transfer Kendall Sheffield could be the best (and fastest) cornerback in all of college football, while Damon Arnette and Jeffrey Okudah are both more than reliable pass-defending talents. Keep in mind that redshirt freshman Shaun Wade could also make an impact in the secondary as well, if he...

Oregon State Football: Most Valuable Player Countdown - #12 Andrzej Hughes-Murray

The versatile linebacker debuts on the countdown list The college football season is just around the corner and Building the Dam’s countdown continues with No. 12. #12: Andrzej Hughes-Murray - Linebacker Andrzej enters his junior season after playing in all 12 games as a sophomore (4 starts). The 6-foot-2, 245-pound linebacker is an incredible athlete and will likely start the season at outside linebacker, but is versatile and strong enough to move to an inside linebacker role, if needed. In his Oregon State career he has managed 45 tackles (29 solo) and was a Pac-12 All-Academic...
