Bryce Bramscher almost didn't play high school football, now he plays for Oregon State

The former St. Mary's Crusader is now an Oregon State Beaver and getting ready to participate in his third Civil War Game, but were it not for his high school football coach he may have never played football.

CORVALLIS, Ore. — It's the biggest game for Oregon and Oregon State football players every year. The Civil War Game. In 2019, it's the 123rd time the Ducks and the Beavers have squared off.

For Bryce Bramscher, redshirt sophomore tight end for Oregon State, being apart of it almost didn't happen. Seven years ago when Bramscher entered St. Mary's High School in Medford, he wasn't going to play football. But Crusaders head coach Jamie Young convinced him otherwise.

"I didn't even want to play my freshman year of high school," Bryce Bramscher said. "[Coach Young] kind of just convinced me to do it and so I'm really glad that he did."

Now Bramscher has a chance to make an impact in the game as a special teams starter. Oregon State tight end coach Brain Wozniak said Bramscher has been instrumental to the Beavers' success in 2019 with his work both on special teams and scout teams in practice.

Bramscher and the Beavers are chasing bowl eligibility with their record sitting at 5-6 this season. An upset win over the Ducks would secure an Oregon State bowl game for the first time since 2013.

The Civil War Game kicks off at 1 pm on Saturday in Eugene.
