Getting to Know EWING

What is your most memorable moment on the football field so far? Making it to the state championship with my teammates, they all worked just as hard as I did. I've never been so close to a group of guys like this before, it was quite the journey.

Who is your hero or role model in life and/or on the football field? My heroes are my family. They supported me through everything, and used their time and money to put my dreams first.

What schools were recruiting you the hardest besides Oregon State? Iowa State, Iowa, UNI, North Dakota State, North Dakota, South Dakota, Western Illinois, Washington.

Who is the one person in your life that has helped you the most when it comes to your development as a football player? My Dad saw my potential and pushed me to go to all of the camps and combines, once I started to get better and get the attention of Coaches, I had the confidence to start contacting them and start relationships and eventually I was lucky enough to receive all these scholarships. My coaches made me a better player and made sure I got my butt in the weight room.

What PAC 12 Team are you most excited to play against? Oregon and Washington, they are the two teams that I want to help defeat and get some payback next year!

If you had a super power what would it be? I would want a healing power. Everything that I touch would be healed. I could help many people all around the world and cure cancer.

What do you plan to major in at Oregon State? I will go as undecided but, I might be leaning towards Marine Biology or Sports Science.

What made you choose Oregon State? I had an instant bond with all of the coaches and Oregon itself was just amazing to me. From all the schools I had to pick, I knew that Oregon State was the right fit. I knew these coaches really know what they are doing and they can get me to the next level after college. I will do my best and I'm sure the coaches will give us young men a bright future.

Is there anything else you want the fans of Oregon State to know about you as a person and as a football player? I'm sure you are all wondering about my name. I was born in Eastern Europe (Ukraine) and was given the Russian name Glyeb (Pronounced Gleb). I moved to the States for the first time when I was 4 and moved back to Europe after 2nd grade. From 3rd to 6th Grade I went to a private International School and finally moved back to the States in 7th grade where I played football for the first time! Never thought I would make it this far. Thanks!
