Colvin talks about summer workouts

Cam Colvin is working hard in this the "do-or-die" campaign of his college football career. Colvin is entering his senior year determined to be the best player he can be and help his team, the Oregon Ducks to clean out the bad taste of the 2006 football season.

Cameron Colvin had 18 catches for 121 yards but no touchdown receptions (he did have one rushing touchdown) last year and he is not satisfied with his performance or the way the season turned out for the Ducks. He just finished summer workouts on Friday but will stay at his home in Eugene, even for the week off before fall camp starts of Aug. 6th.

Colvin is in the best physical shape ever and he intends to lead by example on the field. A very likable and soft-spoken young man, he clearly says what's on his mind. He always has positive things to say when anyone talks to him and is not one to make excuses or find fault.

Cam wants to move on to the next level -- playing in the NFL, and is doing everything he can including catching 600 passes every morning, plus hitting the weight room and all the conditioning sessions. Cam recorded a personal best in the bench press of 345 pounds this spring, which is the second best for a wide receiver since the Ducks started keeping weightlifting records. He seems to have overcome some of the nagging injuries that have plagued him during his career and recorded his best spring workout last April. For Colvin, this upcoming season is "now or never" in terms of him living up to the expectations many placed upon him when he came to Oregon as 5-star recruit from De La Salle High School in Concord, California. While he's had his ups and downs during his career, he is determined to give this year his very best shot.

Colvin took time to talk with eDuck Sports about summer workouts and the upcoming fall camp.
