BEND, OR -- Oregon State Football is making Central Oregon home this week. While football facilities in Corvallis are being worked on, the team is practicing in Bend. Saturday’s workout was open to the public and hundreds of fans showed up donning their orange and black. 

 

“We live it, we breathe it, we bleed it,” Rick Montez told KBND News. The festivities included a booth showing a virtual reality film of the work begin done on the OSU football facility.
 
Jerry Gerke and his wife drove down from Madras to watch the practice. He’s a former Beaver football player from 1954. “We didn’t have face masks. We did have the shell helmet but we didn’t have face masks.” 
 
Beaver fans from High Desert Middle School took advantage of the crowds to hold a fundraiser. Seventh grader Garett Morton and his pals sold goodies to raise funds for a trip to Washington D.C. “We’re selling donuts and water and tea right now.” 
 
This week’s practices at Summit High are closed to the public, but Beaver Believers took full advantage Saturday to see their team up close and personal.
