Last season at this time, Oregon State coach Mike Riley was focusing on choosing a starting quarterback. That's the least of his concerns as he heads into fall camp this year.
Sean Mannion won the starter's job over Cody Vaz last fall and went on to throw for a Pac-12 single-season record 4,662 yards and a school-record 37 touchdowns. The Beavers finished 7-6, capping off the year with a 38-23 victory over Boise State in the Hawaii Bowl.
Mannion decided to return for his senior season, solidifying that position for the Beavers. Luke Del Rio, Brent VanderVeen and Kyle Kempt will compete as his backup during camp, which opens for Oregon State on Monday.
