Portland Highlights

Kevin McShane, who attended Portland's Jesuit High School and Clackamas Community College, comes from a long list of family members who have attended Oregon State, including his father (Bill), mother (Laura), step-mother (Beth) and five cousins. He arrived at OSU for the 2008-2009 season as a walk-on and left as a three-year team captain. Kevin, who aspires to be a high school teacher and basketball coach, notes that "being a team captain isn't about yelling at guys or giving compliments.
