Intensity Rises

Driving rain greeted the gridiron warriors at the beginning of the third week of practice.

The offense continued to improve as Derek Anderson looked sharp on his deep and short throws. The receivers, especially Kenny Farley, made some excellent one handed catches over the middle and in traffic.

Anderson had the play of day as he scrambled down the south sideline, juking at the end of the play, causing LB Chaz Scott to fly face first into the turf. The team erupted in shouts of joy as Anderson ran back to the huddle visibly pumped up by the play.

The defense continued to hound Scott for the rest of the practice.

The coaching staff continued to encourage the players to stay focused and pay attention to the little things throughout Tuesday's practice and the remainder of the week.

Intensity was high during the line drills, as the crashing of flesh and helmets echoed throughout the practice facility.

Several scuffles broke out resulting in two players being asked to leave.

James Newson gave Brandon Browner a couple of lessons during the one-on-one drills enticing Browner to bite on a hitch and go twice. Anderson through perfect touchdown passes each time.

Oregon State continues practice at Reser Stadium at 4:00 PM on Wednesday.
