Beavs tie for most All-Academic honorees

Posted Dec 2, 2008

EAT YOUR HEART out Stanford. Better luck next time, Cal. On Tuesday, Oregon State and Washington State tied for the most honorees named to the Pac-10 Conference All-Academic team.

To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or significant substitute.

Fifteen Oregon State football players were selected to the Pacific-10 Conference All-Academic team on Tuesday. Oregon State had four first team selections -- also tied for most in the conference.

Senior defensive tackle Pernnell Booth and wide receiver Sammie Stroughter, sophomore wide receiver Casey Kjos and redshirt-freshman defensive back Cameron Collins were selected to the first team.

Booth earned second team academic honors last season and honorable mention as a sophomore. Stroughter earned first team accolades for the second time in his career after receiving honorable mention in 2005. Kjos and Collins are first time, first team honorees.

Earning second team honors were seniors Andy Levitre (OT) and Greg Laybourn (S), junior Taylor Kavanaugh (WR) and redshirt-freshman Brandon Hardin (CB/ST).

For Levitre, it was his fourth straight Pac-10 academic honor.

Seven Beavers earned honorable mention; seniors Adam Speer (OG) and Austin Hall (S), junior Gregg Peat (OG), sophomores Justin Kahut (PK), Alex Linnenkohl (C), Gabe Miller (TE) and redshirt-freshman Kevin Frahm (DE).
