First Team Selections
OL Roy Schuening |
Schuening has been a rock on the offensive line starting a school record
49 consecutive times. He has played guard and tackle without skipping
a beat earning honorable mention honors in the last two years.
Schuening is the first Beaver offensive lineman to be named to the first
team since Jeremy Perry earned first team honors a year ago.
DE Dorian Smith | Senior
Despite having just nine career starts under his belt, Smith has been
a force in his two years in Corvallis.
Last year, in primarily a backup role, he racked up a team high nine
sacks while this year he has six sacks, good for third on team. He has
26 tackles on the year, including nine for loss, tied for fourth most
on the squad.
He is the first OSU defensive end to be named to the first team since
Bill Swancutt in 2004.
Second Team Selections
RB Yvenson Bernard
Bernard makes his second appearance on an all-conference team as he was
a first team selection last year and probably would have been a first
team selection this year if he had not missed two games with injuries.
The Florida native is the active leading rusher in the Pac-10 with 3,685
yards and is currently ranked No. 10 on the Pac-10 career rushing list.
Bernard is in the top 10 of several school lists. He is second in all-purpose
yards (4,645) and career rushing yards (3,645), third in career rushing
touchdowns (37) and ninth in career receptions (118).
Bernard is just the seventh player in Pac-10 history to top 1,000 yards
in three consecutive years.
MLB Alan Darlin | Senior
Darlin, a first time all-conference selection, has 25 career starts under
his belt. He is the team's fourth leading tackler with 58 stops, including
two sacks, one forced fumble, two recovered fumbles and three pass breakups.
Darlin is a co-team captain.
OLB Derrick Doggett
One of the most prolific linebackers in school history Doggett is currently
the team's top tackler with 85 stops, including a team high 13 for loss.
He is also the team's leading interceptor with four picks.
Adding to his impressive statistics are three pass pass breakups, one
fumble recovery, one blocked kick and one safety. He has 31 career starts,
including 26 straight.
Doggett has three career touchdowns off of interceptions, including one
each in the last two Civil Wars. He was a second team selection a year
ago and a special teams all-conference member in 2005.
CB Brandon Hughes |
Anyone who watched spring and fall camp saw this coming, although it
may have been a surprise to the rest of the league. Hughes increased his
upper body strength in the off season as he refocused and became the team's
best cornerback this year.
Hughes is the team's fifth leading tackler with 55 tackles, including
six for loss. He also has two interceptions, the first of his career,
and a team high 11 pass breakups.
Hughes is the first Orange and Black cornerback to make the second team
since Aric Williams and Brandon Browner earned the honor in 2004.
LB Joey LaRocque |
A quiet, hard working player LaRocque has silently put together another
outstanding year as he is the team's second leading tackler with 82 stops,
including 10 for loss, good for third on the team.
LaRocque also has three sacks, two interceptions, including one for a
touchdown, three pass breakups and one fumble recovery.
He has started all 25 games of his career in Corvallis.
OL Andy Levitre | Junior
One of the most versatile offensive lineman finally gets his dues as
he was an honorable mention selection a year ago.
Levitre has 20 straight starts under his belt and, like Schuening, can
switch from guard to tackle seamlessly. He is a sure fire all-conference
selection next year.
PK Alexis Serna | Senior
Serna has been rewriting the school record books for the last couple
of years and he continued to his assault on the annuals this year.
He became the schools all-time leading scorer, is second in the Pac-10
in career scoring (380) and has made a Pac-10 record 141 consecutive extra
Serna was a second team selection last year and a first team selection
DE Jeff Van Orsow |
A stalwart on the defensive line with 36 consecutive starts at defensive
end, tops among defensive players, Van Orsow once again leads all Beaver
defensive lineman in tackles with 42 stops, including 7.5 for loss.
Van Orsow was an honorable mention pick last year.
