DAY 15 EXTRAS NOTEBOOK: A rare sight indeed

CORVALLIS -- The evening session on Wednesday, the last of the Beavs' scheduled two-a-days for camp, was a low-key walk through affair but before that, in the morning practice, something occurred you just don't see every day. Or, really, on just about any day. Stephen Paea, he of the 720 pound squat and 525 pound bench, knocked on his wallet??

We'll get to that in a moment but first, Markus Wheaton (Clearinghouse paperwork) remained out for the morning session.

It was a decidedly up-tempo morning session from both the offense and the defense.

And Mike Riley continued to hammer home specifics of lining up, how to run precise routes, where to deliver the ball to catch the target on the play side.

There was also lots of talk on offense and defense, communication becoming the focal point for many teaching lessons.

And now onto the hit heard 'round Corvallis.

Play Of The Day:
The play of the day came in a fun-unique drill which flipped the offensive and defensive lines. Poised to attack in a three point stance, center Alex Linnenkohl eyed down Stephen Paea, who was assuming the offensive tackle position.

Linnenkohl came at Paea strong and knocked him flat on his back, to the delight of many watching.

Indeed, howls echoed over the playing field as Paea picked himself up off the turf. The guys had a lot of fun with this drill.

Player Of The Day:
It's hard not to select James Dockery but Damola Adeniji went up and got 'em high numerous times this morning and showcased great hands.

Adeniji has picked up his play continually throughout fall camp, making great catches for Sean Canfield and others.

Adeniji has little playing experience on Saturdays but with teams more than likely keying on James Rodgers, the taller Adeniji could possibly develop into a great option for Canfield if he continues along the path he's blazing here in August.
