DC Jim Leavitt is a bundle of energy and enthusiasm for life and football

It doesn't take long to get the impression that Jim Leavitt is excited about his job. Today, when he met with reporters prior to the start of practice, he oozed with enthusiasm. He said he was happy to be coaching and grateful for the opportunity to do so at the University of Oregon. His enthusiasm is apparent and it must also be rubbing off onto his players. Leavitt and the Ducks are completing the second week of spring workouts.

On Saturday the team will travel to Jesuit High School in Portland for a practice that will be open to the general public with the actual practice scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. The games will open to the public at 1:30 p.m.
