Spring Camp Report: Day 10

News and notes from Oregon State's April 21 practice.

  • Rainy earlier in the day, sunny when practice started, practice indoors, full pads.

  • Former CB Shamon Jamerson visited practice today.

  • Mitch Meeuwsen was in shorts and a t-shirt today and did some work with the safeties.

  • While the players were working with their position coaches, Defensive Line coach Greg Newhouse was telling his players to move their feet and he was getting the players to concentrate on doing that.



Brad Ching vs. Gerard Lawson—slant, catch
Gillett vs. Aric Williams—quick hook, made the catch
Hawkins vs. Justin Williams—quick hook, dropped the ball
Hass vs. AW—deep in-route, catch
Powers vs. Lawson—inside-out route, about two or three steps on a slant, then turn it outside, catch
Swanigan vs. J-Will—same route, catch
Browner vs. AW—streak, inc. AW did a nice job of pinning receiver to the sideline
Brandon Robinson vs. J-Will—slant, catch


Middle Drill

  • LB Chaz Scott made a nice play behind the line of scrimmage, Coach Camp (linebackers coach) almost knocked Chaz on his butt, Camp was extremely enthusiastic today.

  • RB Yvenson Bernard had a nice run.

  • DE Bill Swancutt had a stop about 4 yards deep at one point,

  • One thing in particular to keep in mind for this drill, the defense can really pin its ears back and rush hard every time because they know it is always going to be a running play, which really makes this drill difficult for the offense.

End of Practice

  • WR Josh Hawkins dropped a lot of balls today.

  • The running backs had some nice carries once the plays were live and they were allowed to break tackles. All three, Wright, Bernard, and Cole, were able to break tackles and had strong runs.

  • The other thing that stood out today that usually stands out every other day too is the enthusiasm of linebacker’s coach Charlie Camp. This guy is all over the place, teaching his players and encouraging his players. He is really a ball of fire.
