The season ended long ago for the Oregon State Beavers, but the postseason honors are still rolling in.
On Friday it was announced that six Beavers earned a spot on the Phil Steele All-Pac-12 team: Jermar Jefferson, Avery Roberts, Nathan Eldridge, Omar Speights, Joshua Gray, and Champ Flemings.
The six players were led by Jermar Jefferson and Avery Roberts, who both earned first-team selections.
Jefferson, who was also named a Phil Steele Fourth-Team All-American, has now earned three all-conference selections this season. He was also voted all-conference by the Associated Press and the Pac-12 coaches. The Pac-12's Co-Offensive MVP rushed for 858 yards, the second-most in the conference. He only played six games, and his 143-yard average was the fourth-best in the nation.
Roberts had an incredible season, leading the Pac-12 with 69 tackles. He was also named to the Coaches All-Pac-12 First Team. His best game of the season came at Utah when he recorded a career-high 21-tackles, the third-most in a single-game in OSU history.
Nathan Eldridge and Omar Speights each earned second-team honors.
Eldridge started all seven games for the Beavers, helping anchor an offensive line that allowed Jermar Jefferson to run all over the Pac-12.
Speights teamed with Roberts to form a nasty 1-2 linebacker combo. Speights totaled 63 tackles, hitting double-digits in three of the team's seven games. Joshua Gray earned third-team honors and was also named All-Pac-12 Second-Team by the conference's coaches. Along with Eldridge, Gray paved the way for Oregon States impressive ground game. Rounding out the six Beavers to make Phil Steel's all-conference list is Champ Flemings, who was named Third-Team All-Special Teams. Flemings averaged 23.5 yards per return on 19 kick returns this season. Flemings' four returns for 125 yards against Washington earned him Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week in late November.
Great job, Beavers!
