At Oregon, we’re very privileged to have advantages that are very rare in college football. We have amazing facilities, a staff that I wouldn’t trade for anyone else in the country, and unmatched community and fan support. We understand that this did not happen overnight.
Many people worked countless hours since before most of us were born to make Oregon Football what it is today. I understand that, our team understands that. We’ve spent a lot of time during fall camp discussing the traditions of Oregon football, and some of the men and women who dedicated their lives to help us achieve our goals today.
Our motto is that, “We can see farther than anyone else because we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us.”
Last night, we started a new tradition… We held the first annual Oregon Football Bowling tournament. Prizes were awarded to the first, second, and last place finishers.
We all had a great time after everyone understood the rules. Some people, (Talmadge Jackson, Michael Clay, and intern Mike Keldorf) played like they were trying to NOT hit any of the pins.
We had a few ringers who brought their own balls, and Malachi Lewis bowled a 245!
When it was all over, the team of Mike Keldorf, Scott Grady, Pono Kam, and Kenny Rowe were victorious in a tight battle with Coach Frost’s group of Keaton Arden, Eddie Pleasant, Simi Toeaina, and Terrell Turner. The Dead Last award was regretfully presented to Coach Campbell, Titus Jackson, Will Tukuafu, Mavin Johnson, and Kiko Alonso.
We’re going to post a video very soon so be sure to check that out.
On a final note, we had a new member join the Duck family yesterday. Brandon Bair and his wife Jordan had a baby girl Brooklyn. Congratulations to Brandon and Jordan, we can’t wait for you to bring her by!
Win the Day,
