There’s a lot of work to be done in the spring for the Oregon State football team’s specialists.
PK Trevor Romaine must get in his groove. Coach Mike Riley said incoming recruit Garrett Owen is going to greyshirt, but he’s ready to join the team if Romaine can’t find consistency.
There’s going to be a competition for punter with Tim McMullen and Keith Kostol.
There’s a competition for the long snapper with Michael Morovick and Troy Whalen. Marcus Perry didn’t make a mistake in four years, so these guys have a lot to live up to.
Even another holder must be found. Last year the backup punters were trained to step in, so we’ll see who takes the job.
As for returners, Jordan Poyer on punts and kicks, and Malcolm Marable on kicks are proven returners.
However, coach Mike Riley wants to see what Brandin Cooks can do on kickoffs.
