Summers visits summer workouts

Eugene -- Nearly 100 bodies were grinding it out under a beautiful July afternoon sun on Papè Field under the direction of Oregon Strength and Conditioning Coach Jim Radcliffe. The participants (over 70 football players, 20 or so volleyball players, a handful of softball players and one very large Mitch Platt) ran through conditioning drills.

The drills take place daily and will run through fall camp. A number of football players were missing for various reasons but for the most part participation has been very strong all summer long.

Included in the group are 14 new arrivals from the 2007 recruiting class. eDuck Sports was able to catch some of the freshmen after drills concluded:

Another familiar face was in his office -- Jim Bartko, back from his year-stay at the University of California. Jim is happy to be back in Eugene and says hello to all of his eDuck friends.
