Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Rob Moseley has your Friday practice report.

Highlights: The play of the day was by Keanon Lowe, who, already winded after an 11-on-11 period with the offense, sprinted down the field on kickoff coverage, blew up a scout-team blocker and made the play. It was an example of relentless effort, and nobody brings that on a more consistent basis than Lowe. … B.J. Kelley hauled in touchdown passes from Marcus Mariota and Jake Rodrigues during team drills, and both Byron Marshall and Thomas Tyner showed off their burst with long runs between the tackles. …

The day ended with an overtime scenario in which the twos bested the ones. Mariota got the No. 1 offense a chunk of yards with a pass to Josh Huff, but two plays later he was intercepted in the end zone by Erick Dargan. A Jeff Lockie completion to Blake Stanton and some Tyner rushing yards then put the No. 2 offense into field-goal range, and Eric Solis made the short kick.

Overall, UO returns 12 position players, 11 of 15 pitchers, and two redshirts who could start while boasting one of the top recruiting classes in the country.

GO DUCKS!

Those unis are awesome...I think a #6 ranking in baseball deserves some new digs as well. Word.
