Defense Grabs Three INT's

The gray clouds rolled back over the Mid Valley Wednesday night as Beaver fans across the nation slept. The soft drops of rain coated the Corvallis campus with a transparent, damp sheet as students hurried to class while black and orange blurs darted back and forth indoors.

Shedding the pants and opting for shorts, the Beaver defense once again dominated the offense.

But the offense did improve from Wednesday's performance, despite three defensive players recording interceptions. (SS Sabby Piscitelli, FS Lawrence Turner, and LB Trent Bray)

Adam Rothenfluh continued to impress as he hit George Gillett several times on the sideline. Kenny Farley and James Newson also had a couple of nice catches from Rothenfluh and Anderson.

Derek Anderson and company still struggled with the timing patterns as balls were overthrown and patterns were not run correctly.

Thursday's practice was the sixth practice of the month and the last before the first official scrimmage that will take place this Saturday at 12:30.

The players were visibly happy that they have Friday off and were often not paying attention to the drills if they were not physical running the drills. Many members of the football team meandered their way to the next drill to the disgust of Mike Riley.

After observing the players behavior, Riley vehemently told everyone to focus on the drills and run, not walk, to the next one.

The players responded with a good, hard fought practice.

The Beavers continue with spring ball at Reser at 12:30 pm on Saturday.
