Former Medford Black Tornado and Oregon State Beaver ‘Hall of Famer’ Bill ‘Earthquake’ Enyart passed away today at the age of 67 in Bend, Oregon.
Enyart graduated from Medford High School, helping the Black Tornado to a state title. He played varsity football for the Beavers from 1966-68. Enyart was part of the iconic 1967 “Giant Killers,” who went 7-2-1 with victories over No. 1 USC, No. 2 Purdue and a tie vs. No. 2 UCLA.
He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2011 joining former Heisman Trophy winner Terry Baker as the only Beaver players to be enshrined. He was a member of one of the first classes to be inducted into the OSU Sports Hall of Fame in 1991 and added the State of Oregon Sports Hall of Fame honor in 2003. - Jay Reese Sports
