Scappoose alum Paul Revis runs wild for Western Oregon

Revis is ranked 6th in all of Division-II football in all-purpose yards after week 1

Scappoose alum Paul Revis picked up exactly where things left off after graduation in 2013, making the most of a redshirt season to come out on fire for the Western Oregon University Wolves in a season opening loss to Portland State on Sept. 6.

Revis had eight receptions for 109 yards, picked up 27 yards on punt returns and 129 yards on kickoff returns — that's 265, to save some math, and it ranks 6th in all of Division-II football for all-purpose yards. Of the other athletes to make the top nine, only two did it in fewer plays than Revis, who touched the ball 17 times, but made all 17 plays count.

The Wolves, who haven't beaten a Football Championship Series division team in 13 seasons and at 1-17 all time against FCS schools, gave Portland State a serious run for their money at Hillsboro Stadium. The Vikings jumped on top 17-0 early in the second quarter. Western Oregon finally broke through and picked up a little momentum, and just a few minutes later, Revis scored the Wolves' second touchdown of the afternoon to bring the visitors within a field goal.

Revis knocked in another touchdown, this time hauling in a pass from quarterback Ryan Bergman for 48 yards with just over three minutes to go, but the Wolves didn't have enough time to complete the comeback, falling 45-38. Western Oregon will travel to Simon Fraser in British Columbia on Sept. 13.
