LSB: Lomax, Singler shine

HILLSBORO -- The six future Oregon State football players all turned in solid performances Saturday in Hillsboro at the 62nd annual Les Schwab Bowl. Here are exclusive pictures of each athlete -- and BF.C's observations on their performances plus a look forward to the start of their orange and black career.

OL MICHAEL BEATON

Played right tackle the entire game.  Held his own against all defensive linemen.  Really liked his aggressiveness.   Always looking for someone else to block.  Needs to tone his body, but that won't be a problem in a college weight room.  Has a nice frame to build from.  Good footwork and seemed to enjoy pulling.

 

OL JOHN BRAUN

Switched between left guard and left tackle. Definitely more comfortable at guard during this game. Had trouble locating defenders in space. Would have liked to have seen more aggressiveness. Once he gets his hands on defenders, he controls them. A fit frame who will add 15-20 pounds without skipping a beat.

 

WR MICAH HATFIELD

One of the tallest receivers on the field. Not scrawny, but not big either. Will definitely need to put on some weight. Navigates well in traffic showing good cutting ability. Finished with four catches for 40 yards and one touchdown.

 

DB LEVI LEVASA

A solidly built athlete. Good instincts. Had six tackles. A preferred walk on.

 

QB JACK LOMAX

Comfortable in the pocket or rolling out. Mobile. A leader. Ran the offense very efficiently getting his team to the line of scrimmage quickly. Made excellent decisions the entire game. Got rid of the ball fast almost every play. Completed 18 of 28 (64%) for 178 yards and two touchdowns; seven carries for eight yards and two touchdowns. Named the Les Schwab Bowl MVP.

 

WR MITCH SINGLER

A natural catching the pigskin. Superb separation from the defensive backs. Had a game high seven catches for 114 yards and one touchdown. Named the Les Schwab Bowl's receiver of the game. A preferred walk on.
