Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
• Rob Moseley posted his regular video after practice yesterday as the reporters asked CK various questions regarding the state of the team after one week of practice. In Rob's accompanying article he has his "play of the day" section which includes this:
There was a red-zone drill that featured nice "scoring" runs by Lache Seastrunk, De'Anthony Thomas and Ayele Forde, and also an Erick Dargan interception of Bennett. Seastrunk was nearly caught up in the backfield but went out wide and found the corner on his TD run.
Some pics of the yellow practice jerseys here.
• Steve Summers and Aaron Fentress also covered both practice's yesterday and offer their insight. Here is a sample from each story.
Steve: While there was concern headed into this camp that the Ducks would have to scramble to replace Jeffery Maehl, now with the Houston Texans, and Drew Davis, Oregon's receiving corps seems to be very healthy with the addition of JC transfer Rahsaan Vaughn, true freshmen Devon Blackmon, B.J. Kelley and Tacoi Sumler. Add in redshirt freshmen Keanon Lowe and Eric Dungy, sophomores Blake Cantu, Nick Cole and Daryle Hawkins, plus junior Will Murphy and senior Justin Hoffman, the Ducks have plenty of options in the passing game. Oh yeah, the tight ends, senior David Paulson, redshirt freshman Curtis White and freshman sensation Colt Lyerla are pretty good too.
Aaron: Those who have stood out on defense in Kelly's eyes are safety Eddie Pleasant, linebackers Michael Clay, Dewitt Stuckey, Boseko Lokombo and Josh Kaddu, and defensive linemen Terrell Turner and Dion Jordan. They, along with other key veterans at other positions have helped keep practices running smoothly.
Aaron Fentress also has this video where he discusses his thoughts after week one of fall camp.
• Backup QB Bryan Bennett talks with Molly Blue talks about his role and the progress he is making.
• Josh Huff talks with KVAL reporters about stepping up to help the newbies and his expanded role going into his sophomore season.
