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.
