Oregon RS Sophomore Shane Lemieux

According to Shane Lemieux, the main focus of practice now (besides working on fundamentals) is competition. Lemieux believes no one's job is safe and that in order to be a starter, an athlete has to earn it.

The Oregon Ducks are completing the second week of spring workouts and it is apparent that the pace, tempo and competition during a practice session has increased.

Shane Lemieux is all in, when it comes to competing for a job. There's good reason for that too; even though this team returns it's entire starting offensive line from last year, that was team finished 4-8 for the season, so there is no where to go but up.

Lemieux echos what Head Coach Willie Taggart has been saying since the day he arrived at Oregon last December, that in order to be a championship team, there has to be a tremendous amount of work to be done and practice will be one of the places it will happen.

Oregon is in the second week of spring workouts and tomorrow the Ducks will head north on I-5 to Portland's Jesuit High School for a controlled scrimmage. The general public is welcome to watch the practice that will begin at 2:00 p.m. Gates will open at 1:30 p.m.
