Senior WR Jordan Bishop decided to retire from football and track at Oregon State due to injuries, coach Mike Riley announced Thursday.
Here’s the full story that will be in Friday’s GT about all the moves. The scholarship numbers are at the bottom of the story.
Bishop, a West Salem High graduate, lettered three years in football and concludes his career with 66 receptions for 893 yards and four touchdowns. He played in 34 games, starting 12, and will graduate in human development and family studies following summer term.
“It’s disappointing that Jordan will not be able to play his senior season,” Riley said. “He has been a tremendous team member and will always be a part of Beaver Nation. I wish him the best in what will be surely a successful professional career of his choosing.”
Bishop, who has battled ankle and foot injuries recently, was a high jumper in track for the Beavers and earned All-America honors in 2010.
Coach Riley also announced that the following players left the team to pursue other opportunities or for personal reasons; senior WR Geno Munoz, senior CB Keynan Parker, junior LB Cade Cowdin, junior QB Jack Lomax, junior LB Zeke Sanders, freshman-redshirt LB Will Storey and freshman-redshirt WR Tyler Trosin.
Munoz, who has also fought injuries during his career, graduated with a degree in human development and family studies. Parker, a native of British Columbia, was drafted in May by the Canadian Football League’s Montreal Alouettes.
Trosin was suspended from spring practice due to off-the-field issues. Cowdin transfered in before the spring after play at College of the Desert. Storey and Sanders moved from S to LB to find a place on the depth chart.
