  11/21/20 - Tristan GebbiarJr/2022, Oregon State, 6-1, 201 (DS#25 QB) + More +

  Oregon State quarterback Tristan Gebbia passed for a touchdown, ran for a touchdown and was on the receiving end of a score in the Beavers' 31-27 victory Saturday over California at Reser Stadium. Gebbia is the first Pac-12 quarterback since 1996 to account for touchdowns via the air, ground and as a receiver. Gebbia's 1-yard touchdown run with 4:30 remaining, set up by Jesiah Irish's blocked punt, gave Oregon State its final lead. California drove to the Beavers' 10 late in the fourth quarter, but on first-and-goal Chase Garbers' pass was tipped by Hamilcar Rashed Jr. and intercepted by fellow linebacker John McCartan. Jermar Jefferson's 65-yard run with just under a minute to go sealed the win for Oregon State (1-2, 1-2 Pacific 12), which opened the season with losses to Washington State and Washington. Jefferson ran for 196 yards, including a 75-yard jaunt on the game's first offensive play. - Oregon State/AP College Football

  The heart and soul of Oregon State's defense is Rashed Jr. The redshirt senior was likely to go within the first two rounds of last year's NFL Draft, but returned to Corvallis for one more season because he felt like he had unfinished business with the Beavers. Rashed Jr. was a first-team All-American in 2019 and led the nation with 22.5 tackles for loss. He has put on 10 pounds leading up to this season in order to become an even more disruptive force, and he will be a nightmare to gameplan around for opposing offensive coordinators. - Gazette Times

  Oregon State was hoping to get some good news this week in regards to junior wideout Tre'Shaun Harrison. It got the opposite. Smith said Monday that Harrison's appeal to play this fall has been denied and he will have to sit out the season. Harrison, a former four-star athlete out of Garfield High School in Washington, played 24 games over two seasons at Florida State before transferring out of Tallahassee. The Beavers are still waiting for news on the appeal of running back Trey Lowe, who also is hoping to play this season after transferring from Washington. Smith said Lowe's appeal is still pending. - Gazette Times

  09/10/20 - Jermar JeffersonJr/2022, Oregon State, 5-09, 217 (DS#24 RB) + More +

  Oregon State's Jermar Jefferson is coming off a sophomore season where he ran for 685 yards and eight touchdowns. Not terrible, but not what Jefferson had in mind following a record-setting freshman year in 2018. Injuries and health played a big role in Jefferson's production decrease. So shortly after the 2019 season ended, Jefferson went to work on a game plan. Jefferson's big problem, it turned out, was simple. Eat. Eat more. What college boy doesn't like to eat, and eat a lot? Jefferson, for one. It's not that he was opposed to food. Just wasn't a priority. "I was barely eating twice a day," Jefferson said of his diet in 2019. "Honestly, I don't know why. I just wasn't hungry, I guess."

Jefferson said it's ideal for him to weigh around 215 to 217 pounds during the season. Jefferson struggled to maintain that weight last season, which he felt went back to his eating habits. OSU's strength and conditioning staff reviewed Jefferson's food intake, and told him it's simply not enough. What Jefferson was eating was OK - he says fast food was only a meal or two a week, though he's trying to cut that to zero - he just needs more of it. Now Jefferson is eating three meals a day, and then some with addition of snacks. His calorie intake has increased significantly. - The Oregonian

  Oregon State defensive tackle Jordan Whittley announced on social media Tuesday that he has a serious issue with his heart. Whittley wrote on Instagram that he has "a tumor in my heart, and the possibility of heart cancer." Multiple sources confirmed to The Oregonian/OregonLive that Whittley is currently dealing with a health issue. The 6-foot-1, 330-pound Whittley signed with Oregon State in 2019 as a junior college transfer from Laney College in Oakland. Whittley played in 11 games last season, making 14 tackles, including 3½ for a loss. Whittley was expected to be a major piece to Oregon State's defensive front this upcoming season. - The Oregonian

  Oregon State junior Jaydon Grant is the Beavers' front man for the Pac-12 Football Unity, a movement by a group of players asking the conference for change when it comes to COVID-19 safety, race issues and revenue sharing. Grant told The Oregonian/OregonLive that he's "willing to sit" out part or all of the 2020 football season if their COVID-19 protocols aren't put in place for player safety. Asked how much support there is among Oregon State players for the movement, Grant said he would "only speak for myself, but I'm willing to stand on what I believe in. Yeah, I'm willing to sit if there isn't the right precautions, and the right protocols in place to where we feel comfortable and feel assured that our health and safety will not be compromised by the pandemic." Grant said he spoke with Oregon State coaches regarding his belief on this matter, even before it became public Sunday. "I didn't want them to feel like they've been blindsided," Grant said. "They've told me they're proud of me, told me they support me. They understand it's really not about Oregon State but it's about the system." - The Oregonian

  Lightbourn, a transfer from Nebraska, is built more like Beavers outside linebacker Hamilcar Rashed Jr. While at Camas High School earlier in his career, Lightbourn once pitched coach Jon Eagle to let him try a 50-yard field goal. "When you get a quarterback sack," Eagle told Lightbourn. "He sat there for three or four seconds, and says, 'Well, I'd have to play defense.' I said, 'That's exactly right.' He said, 'I'll take a pass on that." Lightbourn is a big guy. Maybe not big enough to play defense, but big enough to know when there's a problem. Two years ago during his third year at Nebraska, it hit Lightbourn that not all was right. Shortly after he was replaced as the Cornhuskers' regular punter, Lightbourn sensed he was having mental issues.

As he recently revealed on social media, Lightbourn noticed he was gaining weight and lying in bed for most of the day. It was a change from the "happy kid" Lightbourn described himself as growing up in Long Beach, California, and Camas. "I knew I had an issue, but I couldn't figure out what it was," Lightbourn said. Lightbourn recently revealed his bout with depression because of current circumstances regarding the pandemic and racial injustice. "In these types of trying times, people can feel alone or feeling depressed or whatever it is," Lightbourn said. "People need to know it's not just them, and to let them know they're not alone in this. I felt confident enough now to come out and say it." - The Oregonian
