Extras Notebook: FALL CAMP DAY 14

CORVALLIS -- Coach Mike Riley tells the offensive and defensive lines to "go away" and issues a pop quiz to the receivers. Grant Johnson shows off his versatility. After practice, Lyle Moevao and Markus Wheaton work on a few things plus the play and a player of the day.

Mike Riley quizzed his wideouts throughout the session, often asking them "What's this one?" when they were lined up.

He also worked hard on proper alignment with his wideouts, and where the ball should be delivered on specific routes with his quarterbacks.

Lyle Moevao continued to throw routes to Markus Wheaton after practice, something he hadn't done much of before.

Mark Banker was tinkering with a DB package and the athleticism that took the field looked great.

Grant Johnson got some time at center with the first team. It wasn't clear if Alex Linnenkohl got dinged up or was just getting a rest. While Linnenkohl is a lock for the starting center assignment, Johnson did do a pretty good job handling the brutish Stephen Paea inside.

Play Of The Day:
In skelly drills, Sean Canfield delivered a low pass to Kjos who slid with arms fully extended out to pull in the off target Canfield pass. Nice catch from Kjos, who's pushing Bishop to be the best that both can be.

Player Of The Day:
The player of the day was not a player at all, it was Riley.

The Beavs' head man was on point with attention to detail and heavily focused on doing things with a purpose throughout the practice.

At one point, the Oregon State offensive and defensive lines were called over for team drills. Half the players made it in a timely fashion while the remainder lagged behind.

That was a no-go for Riley, who shouted angrily at the group's laziness and had the entire two units run back to the Sports Performance Center, about 65 yards away, and back -- this time with a considerable hop in their step.
