Beavers Selected to College Hall of Fame Ballot
Two Oregon State Beavers were added to the College Football Hall of Fame Ballot this week. Ken Simonton and Mike Hass have been added to the 2021 ballot which will be distributed to more than 12,000 members of the National Football Foundation. Simonton played for the Beavers from 1998-2001 and maintains the school’s rushing record with 5,044 and was one of only six Pac-12 conference running backs to break the 1,000 yard mark in three different seasons. Hass was a walk-on in 2001 and earned All-America honors in 2003 and 2005 and was the 2005 Belitnikoff award winner as the nation’s top receiver with a record 90 receptions for 1,532 yards a record that has since been broken. Hass was also the first player in league history with three 1000-yard receiving seasons and concluded his career with 3,924 yards.
