OSU receiver Kevin Cummings feels he was robbed at pumpkin carving contest


Every year around Halloween, Oregon State Beavers wide receivers coach Brent Brennan hosts a pumpkin carving contest for all the OSU receivers and quarterbacks. There seems to be a bit of controversy around this year’s results, though, as injured wide receiver Kevin Cummings says he was robbed when it came to the judging: “Man, they played me. I did a little Snoopy, and I should have won. I was second place last year, too (Oregon Live).”

The winner was OSU quarterback Sean Mannion, who carved a pumpkin to resemble Walter White.

Cummings, who fractured his wrist (in a game, not in the pumpkin contest), will be out for 6-7 weeks. He was fourth on the team in both receptions (23) and yards (254), and while those don’t seem like huge numbers, Cummings was one of Mannion’s go-to targets on third-down situations. Senior Micah Hatfield and freshman Malik Gilmore — who struggled in the pumpkin carving contest, according to Cummings — will have to step up in his absence.

The Beavers play the USC Trojans on Friday night.
