Overall: Swancutt played as a reserve and on special teams in all 11 games as a true freshman in 2001 before taking over as a fulltime starter in his 2002 sophomore season. Swancutt was the first Oregon State player ever selected as Pac-10 Player of the Year (Co-Defensive Player of the Year as a senior in 2004). He was the only unanimous selection on the 2004 All-Pac-10 Conference Football Team. Swancutt was a team captain who started 38 consecutive games to finish his collegiate career and also was a first-team All-Academic selection as a senior in 2004. Swancutt is a better football player than athlete. His productivity at DE and on special teams was outstanding and there are few that made as many big plays as Swancutt did at his position on the collegiate level.
