Jeff Bedbury, a graduate from Marist High School (Eugene, Ore.) and a transfer from Oregon State, enters his second year in the Oregon program.
Bedbury is the definition of a “do-it-all” football player. During his four years with the Spartans, he was a lethal wide receiver, defensive back and kick off returner. He also was responsible for the punting and kicking duties. Offense, defense and special teams; he dominated all three phases of football.
He helped guide Marist to two 5A OSAA state titles and also contributed to the basketball (three-year letterman) and track and field teams (four-year letterman). On the gridiron, Bedbury was a threat on the ground as well as stretching the field deep through the air. As a senior he rushed for 1,300 yards and caught 51 passes for 25 total touchdowns and earned first team All-Sky-Em League honors on offense, defense and special teams his junior and senior seasons.
In 2010, Bedbury walked on to the Beavers after receiving notice from several west coast schools like Idaho and Air Force. He redshirted his first season after suffering a season-ending knee injury late in the year.
In 2011, Bedbury missed out on spring football due to the knee injury but returned to the Beavers’ active roster in the middle of fall camp. However, he did not reach the field during the season.
In 2012, he finally was healthy enough to play for the Beavers and was expected to be a major contributor on special teams. However, he elected to transfer back down to Eugene and again walked on to a division one program. Bedbury is now in his second year with the Ducks and is looking to find a spot on the two-deep roster.
Bedbury competed in the 2013 Spring Game and was the third leading receiver for the 65-10 victorious white team. Bedbury hauled in five passes for 31 yards and a touchdown in-front of a crowd of familiar faces.
