The Case For Brenden’s Team

I really, really, really like my team.

Offensively, my team would run roughshod as we boast the likes of Derek Anderson, Steven Jackson, Brandin Cooks, and Mike Hass. This is one of the better groupings of four offensive players that the Beavers have ever had and I’m convinced when they’re put together they’ll dominate. When you combine them with what I believe to be three standout offensive linemen in Isaac Seumalo, John Didion, and Chris Gibson, the offense should have protection for days…

Jackson will help anchor a punishing running style that will open up huge opportunities in the Anderson-led passing game for explosive playmakers on the edges in Cooks and Hass. This group could put up a lot of yards and points in a hurry, so I’m very pleased with how my offense shakes out.

On the defensive side, I’m really fired up about my group! Between Bill Swancutt, Victor Butler, Jordan Poyer, Trent Bray, Sabby Piscitelli, and others, what’s not to like? I wanted tough, physical playmakers on my defense and I feel that every single one of my defenders fits the mold.

All in all, I’d put my team up against Jared’s any day of the week. I love the versatility on offense and defense and feel that my squad is just a little bit better…

Jared’s Team

QB – Terry Baker

RB – Jermar Jefferson

WR – Chad Johnson

WR – Isaiah Hodgins

OL – Andy Levitre

OL – Jeremy Perry

OL – Kyle DeVan

DL – DeLawrence Grant

DL – Stephen Paea

DL – Dwan Edwards

LB – Nick Barnett

DB – Brandon Browner

DB – Reggie Tongue

DB – Dennis Weathersby

The Case For Jared’s Team

From top to bottom, this team does not lack.

From Heisman winner Terry Baker in the 1960s, all the way up to 2020 Doak Walker semifinalist Jermar Jefferson, this team features all the talent you need in Oregon State history to dominate.

There is no doubt that Baker, Jefferson, Johnson, and Hodgins will have plenty of time to make incredible plays behind the protection of Levitre, Perry, and DeVan – and best of luck to anyone who tries to move the ball on that defense. Seriously, best of luck.

I really like my team here.
