Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Coach Horton talks about heading back to his stomping grounds to take on Cal State Fullerton this weekend for a 3 game series.

David Melo opens the history book and takes a look at former Oregon place kicker Josh Frankel. David also has a Q&A with the former walk-on turned star as well.

Special teams has played an important role in the past 20 years of Oregon football.  Specifically, Oregon fans, players, and coaches take great pride in the kicking game.  During the great era of the mid-90’s – mid-2000’s rise to fame, the Oregon Faithful saw lots of successful kickers split the uprights.  One in particular saw his persistence pay off, as he went from a no name walk-on to a successful starter who graduated with honors, and remains successful to this day.  Fishduck is proud to welcome Josh Frankel.

Joey Holland looks back with fond memories to the 1989 Independence Bowl, marking a dry spell of 26 years without playing in a post-season bowl game.

Horton's a class act.
