CORVALLIS – Oregon State forward Logan Farrington has been named Pac-12 Player of the Year, the conference office announced today as it released its annual postseason awards.
Farrington leads a contingent of six Beavers to receive recognition, as he was selected as Player of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year, in addition to All-Conference First Team honors. Joining him on the Pac-12 First Team are Javier Armas and Luis Castillo. Ellis Spikner made the All-Pac-12 Second Team, while Arnau Farnos and Dante Williams earned Honorable Mention.
Farrington is Oregon State’s fifth all-time Pac-12 Player of the Year and the program’s third in the last four seasons (Danny Mwanga – 2009, Khiry Shelton – 2014, Sofiane Djeffal – 2021, Joran Gerbet – 2022). The forward led the Pac-12 this season with 11 goals, and finished first in the conference with 26 points. Heading into the postseason Farrington is tied for sixth on Oregon State’s single-season goals list. This marks the Racine, Wis. native’s fourth ever All-Conference honor, as he was an All-Horizon League selection the last three seasons as a player at Milwaukie.
