Beaver nation is looking to add another decorated alum to the College Football Hall of Fame.
Former Oregon State University football standout Andy Levitre has been nominated for the honor.
Levitre was a four-year letterman offensive lineman for the Beavers from 2005-08, redshirting in 2004. He assisted the Beavers to a 27-3 record as a starter and three bowl victories. The Beavers finished in the final Associated Press Poll each of his final three seasons which culminated with Sun Bowl victories over Missouri and Pittsburgh, and an Emerald Bowl win over Maryland.
He also grabbed himself a Pac-12 First Team honoree in 2008 and a 2007 Second Team and 2006 Honorable Mention, as well as being on the Outland Trophy Watch List, presented to the nation’s top interior lineman.
Being coached under Mike Riley during tenure, Levitre speaks on how Coach brought the competitive energy out of everyone.
Playing for (then) head coach Mike Riley was such an amazing experience," Levitre said. "I instantly felt like I was at home the way he treated his players and that trickled down through the coaching staff. Those have been some of OSU's most competitive years and I am proud and honored to have been a part of that moment in history. The competitive spirit we took into each game gave us the chance to beat any team in the country.
Levitre was drafted in the second round by the Buffalo Bills, the highest offensive lineman in the history of the program. His career started with the Bills and ended in Atlanta with an appearance in Super Bowl LI with the Falcons in 2017.
Oregon State has a strong case for Andy Levitre to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, his resume and his accomplishments on the field speak for itself. Other OSU candidates include: Steve Brown (1970-72), John Didion (1966-68), Mike Hass (2002-05), Jess Lewis (1966-67, '69), Alexis Serna (2004-07), and Ken Simonton (1988-2001).
