Beavs post noteworthy gains

THOSE PROGRAM RECORD 84 players Mike Riley talked about, the ones who stayed in Corvallis this summer for the Beavs' voluntary workouts? They look to have spent their time productively. Here are a few of the more notable weight changes from last year to this year as the Beavers prepare to open fall camp on Monday, August 9.

Based on the final official game week release of last year, and the official roster that was released this week, Grant Enger posted the largest gain, 29 pounds.

A 6-5 offensive lineman has more room to add mass, however, and although it's less poundage, the gains made by players like LB Rueben Robinson, who has added 16 pounds to his 6-foot-1 frame, and DT Kevin Frahm (6-2), who added 16 pounds, should not go unnoticed.

Nor should DE Taylor Henry, who has added 21 pounds to his 6-1 frame.

Or WR Markus Wheaton, who is listed 14 pounds heavier than he was on last season's roster. QB Cody Vaz is up 19 pounds from last year.

Among the redshirting young guns of last year, notable listings include QB Jack Lomax and WR Micah Hatfield. Both arrived at Oregon State needing to bulk up for the rigors of Pac-10 play. Hatfield (6-0) has added 12 pounds while Lomax (6-2) has packed on 13 pounds.

Indeed, 22 of the Beavers who returned this season have tacked on 10 pounds or more..
