After a stellar 2012 season, Michael Doctor’s 2013 Oregon State Beavers season ended in the second game with an ankle injury. Granted another year of eligibility, Doctor returns for the 2014 season looking to not only regain his starting position, but regain his reputation within the Pac-12 as a sideline-to-sideline tackling machine with a nose for the ball. He has started 26 games for the Beavers at outside linebacker and has recorded 185 career tackles.
A four-year starter at Booker T. Washington High in Tulsa, Okla., Doctor was ranked the 10th best prospect in the state. He recorded 340 career tackles, including 130 as a senior. He also rushed for 1,299 yards and a state-leading 28 touchdowns in 2008. He would play basketball and ran track in high school.
Enrolled early in 2010 for spring drills and ended up playing in all 13 games during the season. In 2011, he earned a starting spot at linebacker and played in 12 games, starting 11, and finished the season with 78 tackles, which was second on the team. For the 2012 season, Doctor started all 12 games and led the Beavers with 83 tackles. Named a team captain before the 2013 season, Doctor suffered an ankle injury against Hawai’i that required surgery, ending his season in less than two games.
