It wasn’t exactly a Good Friday workout like the Ducks would do in a normal game week. But it was nearby as Oregon took to the field at Autzen Stadium one day before holding a fight on Saturday.
It certainly had to work on Friday. But also, one eye was on the upcoming fight.
“Hey,” a strength and fitness coach Aaron Field shouted as the ducks passed through their plots on Friday, “tomorrow’s game!”
Last Saturday, Oregon held its first pre-season bout of this camp and the defense as a whole had the advantage. This time-out, offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead said he was looking for “a higher level of accuracy and performance”
For now, sophomore Tyler Schuff has taken most of the repetitions in the camp with violation № 1 and transfer Anthony Brown has pointed to a crime №2. Moorhead said the UO’s coaching staff will meet later Friday to determine how replays will be distributed in Saturday’s dispute.
Security coordinator Andy Avalos Oregon’s debut season is coming out, in which the defense has taken a huge step forward. The ducks had to fight for this offseason with the loss of Troy dye,, Thomas Graham Jr.,, Jevon Holland and Brady Breeze, among others, and yet the defense seems to have missed a single shot.
There is no doubt that the level of talent is in the protection of ducks. Success can be reduced to cohesion, a product of communication that will be the focus on Saturday.
“It’s a big day,” Avalos said. “It’s one of our last opportunities for these guys to be there, all 11, and to get ready and get used to playing together like it’s going to be game day.”
Highlights from the practice: One day after crime II won overtime, crime No. 1 responded to a 2-minute workout that closed Friday’s workout. Shough completed passes to Hunter Kampmeier,, Johnny Johnson III and Mother Pittman to get the ball through the midfield, with Cyrus Habibi-Licio moving the chains down third among this sequence. Moments later, JJ Greenfield broke a pass on the line to put the offense in third and long. But Jaylan Red moved the chains again with an elegant catch and run, and two players later Schuff centered the ball for a goal attempt in the field. Camden Lewis continued his strong camp, breaking a 38-yard kick won by the game, although he was frozen with a timeout by the head coach Mario Cristobal. …
There was also a period of red zone earlier in practice. The defense had an early advantage, getting a break from passing Jamal Hill and a ball sloping on the line of Jordan Scott. Jordan Happel jumped high into the end zone to deflect a pass from Brown that appeared to be in the receiver’s hands, and Nate Houkulani there was an interception with the threes. But then the passing offense began, with touchdowns from Schuff to Red and Pittman, Brown to Chris Hutson,, Jay Butterfield to Tevin Janis and Bradley Jaffe to Justin Collins. … Brown had to gain time with his feet several times under impressive pressure from freshmen Christian Williams,, Keyon Ware-Hudson and Bradin Swinson. … Steve Stevens IV intercepted a pass tilted by a fellow defender.
Other observations: During the team situations at Autzen Stadium, there was an artificial noise from the crowd. This is normal for practice, but of course in these strangest years this can happen in the days of the game. … During a 2-minute training session, the quarterbacks had the opportunity to check the game clock and down the distance of the new video board, which now operates at the eastern end of the stadium.
