Beavs offer California QB

QUARTERBACK BRENT VANDERVEEN from Arroyo Granda in California picked up a scholarship offer this week from a school that wears orange and black -- Oregon State.

The Beavers had a coach in California this past week to watch Brent Vanderveen throw the football. And the Beavs must have seen what they hopes to see from him.

The Oregon State offer in football makes three offers now for Vanderveen, as Arkansas and Arkansas State each came out to California to check him out.

Vanderveen is a three-sport athlete that also plays basketball, but it is football that is his first love.

At quarterback last season, he completed 103 of 198 passes for 1,402 yards with 11 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. He also ran for 581 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Several schools have traveled to see the 6-5, 210-pound quarterback sling the football around this spring.

This week, Vanderveen was also preparing for a baseball playoff game. One of the Eagles coaches is volunteer coach and former Oklahoma State and Major League standout Robin Ventura.

Arroyo Grande opened the CIF playoffs on Thursday, and Vanderveen broke a tie in the bottom of the sixth inning with an RBI single to put the Eagles up 4-3 and they went on to an 8-3 win to move into the second round next week.
