Dwayne Stanford: Leader of Oregon Receivers
Dwayne Stanford is a redshirt junior and the most experience receiver on the Ducks roster. Last year he caught 37 passes for 704 yards and four touchdowns. His longest catch was for 62 yards. He's known the highs and lows of playing college football. Following the Utah game last season, Stanford stop using No. 88, the number he has always had and donned No. 85 to honor his close friend Pharaoh Brown, who suffered a serious broken leg that could have ended his playing career. This year, Brown is back with the team and will again wear 85 while Stanford returns to 88.
During the off-season, Stanford worked with a number of the newcomers on technique, getting the plays down and the general overall experience of being a Duck.
He was also available to youngsters who may have experienced their first time away from home.
A leader does that.
Being a leader for the Ducks not only demands an individual who strives for excellence, is a hard worker and a team player but also someone who has compassion for others and is willing to lend an ear when situation calls.
Stanford has proven his worth on the field and while players like Bralon Addison and Charles Nelson may draw lots of attention from the opposing defenses, Stanford is the steady customer who runs his routes, follows his assignments and puts the team first.
