Morning Practice Focuses on Drills

Eugene -- The Oregon Ducks conducted a morning practice session on Tuesday focusing on teaching and position fundamentals. The team was in shells including sophomore wide receiver Josh Huff, who was on the field working individual skills but not participating in the 7x7 passing drills.

Offensive Line Coach Steve Greatwood pushed the offense in a number of drills aimed at teaching position assignments.

The skill players also worked during 7x7 passing drills. Daryle Hawkins continues to show progress at receiver after switching from the quarterback position. Hawkins had a nice grab for a nice gain. Eric Dungy also had a couple of nice catches and newcomer DeAnthony Thomas continued to flash his talent with his receptions.

Darron Thomas and LaMichael James provided leadership for the offense with near perfect performance in practice committing no mistakes that could be observed by observers from the soccer stands.

Curtis White was on the field and participating and for those wondering, when Rahsaan Vaughn walks by on his way off the practice field, he passes the eyeball test.

The Ducks will hold a second session this afternoon.
