PRACTICE REPORT: Extras Notebook

CORVALLIS -- Sean Canfield, to no one's surprise, took the bulk of the reps. And Canfield was hooking up with Damola Adeniji, another familiar sight this fall. Adeniji is a tall drink of water, and used his height to pull down the lefty's offering. Meanwhile, Jovan Stevenson got in some work with the 1's, Quizz was end zone bound and Mike Riley is pleased with the execution on defense and offense.

On the Sean Canfield Damola Adeniji connection, the ball was placed nicely over the trailing linebacker's head and dropped in just before the safety was able to get over to help.

Jovan Stevenson shared first team reps with Jacquizz Rodgers and looked quick to the corner.

At one point Riley clapped and commented, "All day. Let's see that 4.4, all day."

On a couple occasions, Stevenson bounced it outside, outrunning all defenders and tiptoeing into the end zone.

Quizz continually finished his runs with a jaunt into the end zone, just a taste of what's to come this season if things go well for the sophomore.

In this writer's eyes, one vintage Quizz run could have nearly spelled out J-a-c-q-u-i-z-z on the turf with his footprints.

The lateral movement and ability to start and stop is a thing of beauty to watch. Tuesday, Quizz left defenders confused and at one point, laughing in disbelief.

Red zone drills ended the session and Canfield found Brady Camp in the corner of the end zone after a great play fake.

Canfield was leading the offense with efficient play and solid decision making on Tuesday.

Ryan Katz got some time with the first team in red zone drills.

If Katz gets in on Saturday, it's likely to be with a big lead and his duty will be to hand it off, which he worked on with the 1's. Katz did however on one occasion make a nice pass to Taylor Kavanaugh in the back of the end zone.

He delivered the ball low and between defenders, unfortunately the ball bounced off Taylor's hands and fell incomplete.

Mike Riley seemed genuinely pleased with the execution, attention to detail, and focus of this evening's practice.

A good sign for everything Beaver.

  • Markus Wheaton is still not participating as he awaits word from the NCAA Clearinghouse. He has been held out of practice since Aug. 24, some eight days of practice. Riley said earlier in the day he had no new news to report from the powers that be.
  • Howard Croom is back and running with the first team.
  • John Reese worked only with the scout team offense, seemingly adding more grist to Riley's consideration to redshirt him this season.
  • Tony Wilson, Darrell Catchings, and Ryan McCants ran sideline to sideline through the end zone in attempts to stay in football shape. All are out for Saturday.
