Day 2 Practice Photos

Eugene, Ore. -- Not much going on today at practice, kind of a slow day. The coaches were talking to the players a lot and I never did see a kick or punt (lol). Anyway I took these pictures. The coaching staff is making it hard to get good snap-shots with the way they have moved the people back from the sidelines. Part of the risks of the job I guess!

I'll be out taking shots again next practice.

This guy is something. He letters in three sports, maintains a 3.04 grade point average and was named Pac-10 All-Academic 2nd Team at the end of the men's basketball season.

Kent had three receptions last year in his first year of organized football including one catch of 68 yards for a touchdown.

The first day the team will wear pads is on Friday, April 7. The team continued to run through conditioning drills. Leaf finished last season throwing for 467 yeards on 48-for-82, three touchdowns and three interceptions.

Bennett a walk on from David Douglas High School in Portland was also an All-State basketball player in high school.

One of the questions that is frequently asked about the Ducks' 2006 spring workouts is who is going to replace departed defensive tackle Haloti Ngata. One of the candidates is "Sonny" Harris. Standing at 6-foot-5 and weighing 305 pounds, Harris will get a long look by the Oregon coaching staff. The Ducks will conduct 13 more practice session, culminating with the annual spring game on April 29th at Autzen Stadium.

Oregon's head coach Mike Bellotti indicated on Tuesday that Dixon is the starting quarterback for the Ducks. Dixon started the last four games of last season after Kellen Clemens was lost for the year. In 2005 Dixon was 69-for-104, six touchdowns, three interceptions and 777 yards.
