3. TOP OREGON STATE PLAYERS

Best Oregon State Offensive Player

RB Jermar Jefferson, Soph. 
There were a whole lot of problems with the 2018 season, but the emergence of Jefferson into a rushing star provided a glimmer of hope.

The 5-10, 216-pounder showed quickness and versatility running for 1,380 yards and 12 scores – averaging 5.8 yards per carry – with 23 catches. He didn’t score a touchdown over the last six games, but he was still the focal point of the offense that sputtered and coughed way too often. He can be a workhorse, but Artavis Pierce will handle some of the workload.

3. WR Trevon Bradford, Sr.
4. QB Jake Luton, Sr.
5. QB Tristan Gebbia, Soph.

Best Oregon State Defensive Player

LB Hamilcar Rashest, Jr.
Jalen Moore might be the main man in the secondary, but the D needs Rashest more. The 6-4, 236-pounder stepped up as a sophomore coming up with 58 tackles with 2.5 sacks and a team-high 11.5 tackles for loss. A hybrid edge rusher on the outside, he needs to generate more pressure, but he’s as good a playmaker in the backfield as the Beavers have.

5. DT Elu Aydon, Sr.
