'I don't know if there's a kid at the quarterback position with more to work with'

CORVALLIS — Quarterback Jake Luton has big dreams and big goals, both personally and individually, with Oregon State's football team.

"First and foremost is winning the starting job for next season," says the Marysville, Washington native, a transfer from Ventura (California) College. "I want to be the outright starter. That's my personal goal.

"For the team, I have a lot of goals. I want to get to a bowl game. I want to win a bowl game. I want to beat Oregon. The ultimate goal is to win the Pac-12 championship, and then we'll go from there."

The first thing you notice about Luton is his size — a Derek Anderson-like 6-6 and 235 pounds. He has big hands, an athletic build and a self-confidence that doesn't cross the line into cockiness.

Luton set Ventura career passing records in just one season last fall, throwing for 3,551 yards and 40 touchdowns with 15 interceptions in 11 games. He also ran for 175 net yards and six TDs.
