MEDFORD -- Oregon State relief pitcher, Dylan Pearce, stopped by the Newswatch 12 Sports studio to talk about his Crater career as well as his national championship with the Beavers. 

Pearce grew up a Beavers fan, so being part of the 2018 national championship was surreal. As someone who entered high school at 5' 6", his chances of playing major college baseball were very slim. Now 5' 9", his hard work has paid off as his two years at Southwest Oregon Community College helped him get noticed by Oregon State, which eventually led to his scholarship offer. 

He still has one year of eligibility with the Beavers and will be working out in Southern Oregon all summer, taking the summer off from playing for the first time in his playing career. To hear everything Pearce had to say about his rise from unrecruited to national champion, watch the two videos attached to this story.
