Several Beavers on preseason award lists

The preseason honors continue to pile up for the Oregon State football team as the Football Writers Association of America announced that sophomore center Isaac Seumalo has been selected to the Outland Trophy Watch List and junior defensive end Scott Crichton to the Bronko Nagurski Award Watch List. The Outland is presented to the nation's top interior defensive or offensive lineman and the Nagurski to the top defensive player overall.

Seumalo, the son of Beaver defensive line coach Joe Seumalo, earned Pac-12 Conference Honorable Mention last season and numerous Freshman All-America honors. The Corvallis High School graduate was one of five true freshmen to play for the Beavers in 2012 and was the first freshman to start at center for OSU since 1978.

Crichton, a native of Tacoma, Wash., has established himself as one of the best defensive ends in the country and was one of only two underclassmen last year to be named first team all-conference on defense. A preseason second team All-American according to Athlon, Crichton is tied for seventh for career sacks at Oregon State with 15, tied for sixth for career tackles-for-loss with 32 and is tied for second with seven forced fumbles in his career.
