Five Beavers make first team

Mike Hass, Trent Bray , Keith Ellison, Sam Paulescu and Alexis Serna were named to the Pac-10's first team Monday. Sir Henry Anderson and Derrick Doggett earned second team honors while Jeremy Perry was named Co-Freshman of the Year. The five first team selections tie an OSU record set by the 2000 and 2002 squads.

WR Mike Hass | First Team | Senior

For the second straight year Hass earns Pac-10 first team honors.  He is a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award and holds the school records for receiving yards (3,924) and receptions (220) and shares the school record for career touchdowns receiving (20).

Hass also set a school and Pac-10 record for single season receiving yards (1,532) this season. Hass is the only player in Pac-10 history to have three seasons of 1,000-plus yards receiving. He was also one of the three Beaver team captains in 2005.


LB Trent Bray | First Team | Senior

Bray started 34 consecutive games and concluded his career sixth all-time at OSU for career tackles (337) and tackles-for-loss (29).  He led the conference in tackles with 116 stops good for 10.5 a game while recording double digit stops in 12 of the his last 21 games.

The Washington native was also one of the three Beaver team captains in 2005. He earned second team all-conference honors a year ago.

LB Keith Ellison | First Team | Senior

Ellison was a two-year starter finishing ninth for career tackles-for-loss (25.5).  He finished fourth in the Pac-10 in tackles with 99 stops good for 9.0 per contest.

He was an honorable mention selection in 2004.


P Sam Paulescu | First Team | Senior

Paulescu is the first punter in OSU history to earn first team acclaim after averaging 43.0 yards per kick and having 24 punts downed inside the 20-yard line.  In just two years he had 48 of his punts downed inside the twenty.

His 42.5 career average is the second highest ever at Oregon State.  He was an honorable mention selection a year ago.


PK Alexis Serna | First Team | Sophomore

Serna, a finalist for the Lou Groza Award, made 23 of 28 field goal attempts and all 32 extra point tries.  His 23 field goals in one season set an OSU record.  At one point he made 15 straight tying an OSU record.

His 6 of 6 performance at Washington this year set a school and tied a conference record for field goals made in one game.  Serna is 40 of 48 (.833) for his career, which is second among active NCAA players.  He earned second team honors in 2004.


DT Sir Henry Anderson | Second Team | Senior

Anderson started 22 games for OSU.  In 2005 he recorded 35 stops, including 11 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks.

He was a big part of a Beaver defense that was atop the conference for rushing defense allowing just 108 yards per game on the ground.


ST Derrick Doggett | Second Team | Sophomore

Doggett played a significant role on special teams blocking one kick.  He recorded 42 tackles with most of the coming as a reserve linebacker.


LG Jeremy Perry | Co-Freshman of the Year

Redshirt freshman Perry started all 11 games at left guard quickly establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with on the young unit.

Oregon State, which finished last in the Pac-10 in rushing in 2004, improved by more than 50 yards per game this season. The OSU offense also allowed fewer sacks than the previous year despite having a new quarterback at the controls.
