8 Beavs named to Steele's All-Pac-12 teams

EIGHT BEAVERS WERE named to Phil Steele's preseason All-Pac-12 teams on Monday.

Despite not playing at all last year after injuring his foot in 2013, Isaac Seumalo was named 2015 second-team All-America and first-team All-Pac-12 by Steele.

Gary Andersen is cautiously optimistic that Seumalo, who again sat out this spring, will be able to return to the field in the fall.

Seumalo was the lone Beaver with All-America recognition but Steele placed eight Beavers on his All-Pac-12 teams including Seumalo.

Corner Larry Scott was named to the second team. Scott started all 12 games at corner last season and led the Beavers with 11 pass breaks ups. He posted 43 tackles on the season.

Running back Storm Woods was named to the third team. Woods started eight of the 10 games he played in 2014 and was the Beavers’ leading rusher with 766 yards and five touchdowns. He also recorded 26 receptions for 179 yards and one touchdown.

Kicker Garrett Owens was also named third team. He made 11 of 13 field goals with a long of 46 yards, was 17 of 17 on PATs and averaged 59.2 yards on 29 kickoffs with six touchbacks.

Wide receiver Victor Bolden was named to Steele’s fourth team. He led Oregon State in 2014 with 72 receptions for 798 yards. His 72 grabs ranks 12th in OSU single-season history.

Offensive lineman Gavin Andrews was named fourth team. Andrews started 10 games at three different positions in 2014. He started the first five games of the season at left tackle.

Fellow o-lineman Sean Harlow was also named fourth team and lie Andrews is also highly versatile. He started the season’s first five games at right tackle before switching to left tackle for the final seven games.

Defensive end Lavonte Barnett was the fourth Beaver Steele selected to his fourth team. He played in 10 games with four starts, posting 18 tackles with 5 ½ for loss.
