The countdown of Oregon State Football’s most valuable player continues with number 12. Just 14 more days until the home opener! Real college football is going to be played next Saturday!

#12 Hamilcar Rashed Jr. - Outside Linebacker

The redshirt junior is one of the most intimidating defensive players for Oregon State. At 6-foot-4, 235-pounds Hamilcar possesses a unique blend of speed and strength at the linebacker position. A year ago as an underclassman, he led the team in tackles for loss with 11.5.

The Beavers most talented position group on defense is the linebackers and Hamilcar Rashed might be the most talented outsider linebacker on the team. Oregon State desperately needs to pressure opposing quarterbacks in 2019 and edge-rushers like Hamilcar will be crucial. If the defensive line can take a step forward and show they can stop the run better than last season it’ll help put teams in obvious passing situations. That’s when the defensive coordinators can get creative and dial up some pressure. Look for Hamilcar Rashed to have a big season.

Projected Stats:

62 Tackles, 15 TFL’s, 6 Sacks
