Oregon State Beavers Detail Massive Valley Football Center Renovation Project

Before Oregon State went abuzz with the news that the Beavers had hired Wisconsin's Gary Andersen to be their next football coach, prominent university officials detailed the shiny new tools Andersen will be able to utilize starting in 2016.

OSU on Wednesday officially announced a $42-million project to renovate and expand the Valley Football Center, which is scheduled to break ground following the 2015 Civil War and completed by the start of the 2016 season.

"This is going to be a world-class facility," president Ed Ray said. "And then from now on, at least on my watch, everything we do is going to be world class."

The project will add 55,000 square feet of additional space to the center that will house a new locker room at field level, expanded training and equipment areas, a new team meeting room and a media center. The end zone seating will also be reconstructed with improved sightlines, while a concourse will connect the east and west sides of the stadium.

Still, Ray excitedly talked about how OSU's improved facilities would benefit the entire university, drawing on his 33 years of experience at Ohio State along with his 11-year tenure in Corvallis as evidence of the importance of athletics. He re-told a story about the groundbreaking of the "Raising Reser" project, where he publicly proclaimed "it needs to be understood that this is our house. And ultimately, he views this project as the next step toward completing the entire renovation of Reser Stadium.
