Spring Football Day 1 -- John Garrett's Debut
The last time John Garrett was geared up for a college football practice it was when the Virginia Cavaliers were preparing for their rival Virginia Tech Hokies at the end of the 2006 season. Fast forward to March 31, 2014 and Garrett, after being in the NFL for many seasons, returned to the college sidelines at the Merritt Truax Indoor Center for the first day of spring practice for the Beavers.
Garrett joined the staff after Danny Langsdorf, the coordinator since 2004, left to be the quarterbacks coach of the New York Giants. You can watch a pre-practice sit down interview with Garrett done in February by following this link.
The OSU video team caught up to Garrett post practice Monday after the first of 15 days of spring drills. The coordinator talked about many things, including record setting quarterback Sean Mannion.
The Spring Football Showcase is scheduled for May 3 at Reser Stadium. The day begins at 10 a.m. with the 50-Yard-Line Sale at the Truax Center that features actual game and practice jerseys, shoes and other OSU Athletics apparel. The popular autograph session starts at 10:45 a.m. with the team taking the field at 1 p.m. The game portion of the day will air live on the Pac-12 Networks. More details on all the events will be announced in the near future.
Deposits are being accepted for 2014 OSU season tickets for home games that include Portland State, San Diego State, Washington State, Arizona State, California, Utah and Oregon.
