Doug Brenner, is an articulate young man that carries a 3.8 grade point average in high school and when the No. 4 Oregon Ducks came calling for his future talents as either an offensive guard or center, Brenner snapped the offer up. He becomes the ninth student-athlete to go on the Oregon commit list.
On Sunday morning following Oregon's 42-25 win over Fresno State, Brenner called offensive line coach Steve Greatwood and told him that he wanted to give his verbal commitment to the Ducks. Greatwood was so excited that he turned the phone conversation over to Head Coach Chip Kelly, who in turn was very happy that Brenner is making his commitment to Oregon.
Brenner is a versatile athlete who also plays baseball as a first baseman plus is a left handed pitcher. However, when he goes to Oregon next year, he'll strictly be a football player, and he's excited about that.
One can hear it in his voice that Oregon is his destination. He plans on studying business at the University and perhaps work somewhere like Nike in Beaverton.
Besides Oregon, Brenner has offers from Portland State, Wyoming, Yale, the Air Force Academy, the United State Military Academy at West Point and Oregon State among others.
So far this season, Jesuit has been dominant first beating McMinnville 63-21, then last week demolished Union of Vancouver, Wash., 48-12. Next week the Crusaders take on Canby out of the Three-Rivers League on Jesuit's home field. The following week the heated rivalry with Central Catholic of Portland will take stage at Jen-Weld Field in Portland.
Interestingly, Brenner has other friends who have made verbal commitments to Oregon. He is a workout partner with Evan Voeller of West Linn at Performance Training Center PTC of West Linn, and is also friends with running back Thomas Tyner of Aloha.
