Oregon State football scrimmage report: Freshmen Jermar Jefferson, Jesiah Irish and Beaver running game stand out

CORVALLIS – How do you grade the first scrimmage of Oregon State’s preseason camp, when it’s not exactly played like a game and there’s no scoreboard?

Maybe it’s measured by the smiles.

The offense and defense each had their moments, which could be analyzed in a variety of ways. But the current arbiter of how things are going is first-year coach Jonathan Smith, and he walked away from the two-plus hour practice feeling as though the Beavers are surging in the right direction.

“For the most part, both sides did some really good things. We’ve got a ton of cleanup, but I’m anxious to watch this tape and go through it with these guys. For the first kind of big scrimmage, I was pleased,” Smith said.

Smith seemed upbeat, as did several players who spoke after the scrimmage. Quarterback Jake Luton’s first impression of the workout was that “we’d like to make a few more big plays, but we hit enough for one day to think there was some positives.”

Said linebacker Andrzej Hughes-Murray: “It was so much fun to go out and compete.”
