Marcus Mariota's final play as a Duck

Marcus Mariota's final play as an Oregon Duck began auspiciously, with :08 left on the clock. The team's fate had been sealed well before this, though true to his form and character, Mr. Mariota never gave up. He only looked down in humility, and always looked up even when the prospects were dim. The no-quit leadership he showed throughout the season is captured in his final sequence.

While his playing days at Oregon have come to an end, Marcus Mariota's impact will be felt for years to come. Although his career ended on a loss, his accomplishments as a player and a true leader won the day for the Ducks, and himself. And make no mistake, the Ducks always came before himself...
