Costa, a senior, took every chance he could Monday to set the tone for the team. The Ducks briefly used a ramp inside Autzen Stadium for drills, and when they ran back to the grass practice fields, Costa was the first player behind Radcliffe. The day wrapped up with some light jogging and change-of-direction work on the grass, and Costa was the first guy off the line for those drills.
