He was one of the first players to commit to the Beavers, so it only made sense that Sean Canfield was one of the first to make an official visit to campus. The southpaw 6-foot-4, 203-pound quarterback from Carlsbad High School in California made the trip up to Corvallis this past weekend for the New Mexico game, and simply took in every part of the campus life and atmosphere. BeaverBlitz caught up with Canfield to chat about his visit.
"It was really good," said Canfield. "I got in on Friday and went to the walk-through, and I was with the team most of the time. On Saturday at the game, I was on the sidelines and was with the redshirts. I went out to dinner with the coaches and came back home on Sunday."
A fellow Californian help guide Canfield around. "My host was Adam Speer - he's a redshirt freshman lineman," said Canfield. "I liked him a lot. He introduced me to a lot of the players and I really felt comfortable."
Prior to the visit, Canfield told BeaverBlitz that during his official visit and especially during the football game against New Mexico, he really wanted to get a feel for how "everything fits together". So, it came as no surprise that he played very close attention to all that went on during all the action - down to the minute details.
"When I play in high school, I have to run back to the coach to get the plays," said Canfield. "There, they just signal it in. They passed it 35-40 times during the game and their defense was really good. All during the game the coaches were so efficient with their play-calling. I was just in touch with everything."
As far as the rest of the trip, Canfield once again got a chance to soak in the OSU campus, and in general, it all simply reaffirmed why he decided to become a Beaver. "I really like the campus," said Canfield. "Everything was great - it's just going to be really good for me and my future."
