Matt indicated that the Oregon Ducks worked initially on position drills with the offense concentrating on passing. Coach Gary Crowton encouraged all the receivers to "practice for perfection," emphasizing that to every receiver, whether he be a starter or a walk-on.
The receivers and defensive backs worked on 1-on-1 drills where Jackie Bates and James Finley had a very spirited competition.
During the 11-on-11 drills, the defense had the better of it and Matt reports there were no spectacular passing plays today as there had been earlier in the week.
Jeremiah Johnson and Remene Alston did the lion's share of the running in drills today as Jonathan Stewart was held back. Stewart had been doing most of the work earlier in fall camp due to some minor injuries to Johnson, Chris Vincent and Andre Crenshaw. Johnson showed up by breaking some good runs out of the option, and Kyle Weatherspoon also had a couple of runs as well.
Names that stuck out today on the defense were Blair Phillips, A.J. Tuitele, Walter Thurmond and Jeremy Gibbs, who caused the No. 2 and 3 offensive lines much trouble.
Nathan Costa continued to be impressive and clearly is firming his hold on the No. 3 quarterback position.
Punting saw a lot of emphasis today as Aaron Knowles kicked well. Matt also reports both Matt Evensen and Paul Martinez were place kicking today.
for the entire report.
Defense has the hotter day
