Die-hard Beaver fans in Lincoln County may take a second look at the University of Oregon football progam next year… when Newport High School grad Oshay Dunmore takes to the field, possibly as a safety on the defensive line.
On Feb. 1, Dunmore signed a letter of intent to play with the Ducks after his graduation from Newport High this spring, making him Newport’s first major college football recruit in 20 years.
He also has just been named to the 2012 Parade All-America High School Football Team as an “all-purpose” player. Dunmore was a first team all-state selection as a defensive back and second-team all-state quarterback in 2011.
In addition to prowess on the gridiron, Dunmore is a gifted track decathlete. He was the highest individual scorer at the 2011 OSAA Track and Field State Championships, finishing first in the triple jump and second in pole vault, long jump and discus.
