Corvallis, OR -- Fall camp has begun at Oregon State, as the Beavers took to the practice field to signal the official start to the 2019 season and the second year under head coach Jonathan Smith.
Smith joked to the media that there is no such thing as a bad first day of fall camp, saying if there was a coach would never admit it.
"I thought guys were moving around. Really the effort is there, what you'd expect on day one. Took notice to some bodies man, those guys look good in a lot of ways," said Smith.
The Beavs welcome back a number of returning players on both sides of the ball, including about eight starters on offense. The team also adds some key transfers that will help plug some holes on the roster. The consesus from day one is the second year of the Smith era is off to a good start.
"I thought it just looked clean, guys know where they're going, how they're practicing you know," Smith said. "We installed a bunch about the same amount, but there wasn't any assignments errors out there that I can see. You know just the fluidity of the whole thing. it looked like year two."
Oregon State will host Oklahoma State in week one on August 30th, at 7:30 p.m. in Reser Stadium.
