When you look at the Oregon State University 2009 football team you, of course, see the OSU orange and black-clad Beavers. But, look closer and you can see some Linfield cardinal and purple, too.

OSU head coach Mike Riley and assistant head coach Jay Locey are former Linfield assistant football coaches. In addition, Locey is a former Linfield head football coach.

Oregon State assistant football coach Danny Langsdorf is a Linfield grad and former Linfield football player. His father, Ed Langsdorf, is a former Linfield head and assistant football coach.

On the OSU sidelines during Beaver football games is Linfield grad Ron Callan, sideline reporter for the Oregon State football radio network. He's sports director of Portland's KPAM Radio.
