I have known Coach Osterhout for the last seven years as a player and colleague.   I learned under his tutelage as a defensive lineman during the 2004 and 2005 seasons at Sacramento State.  Coach O is passionate about the game and has an unwavering way of demanding the best out of his players.  Prior to playing under him, I was lacking the proper skillset of technical defensive line play.  Coach O was able to patiently teach me the proper techniques and his tireless efforts were instrumental in developing me as a complete player.   He is a tremendous motivator and possesses the unique ability to relate and bring out the best in his players on and off the playing field.   I am a living testament of how he positively impacted my playing career but more importantly, how he prepared me to be successful in life after football.
