Faaeteete looking forward to fall camp.

Some think that the Oregon Ducks' defensive line is a weakness on the team, but if anyone asks defensive lineman David Faaeteete, they'll get a much different answer.

David Faaeteete is entering his senior season as a Duck and he thinks this year's squad is deep and talented. The injury bug plagued the defensive line last year and it didn't help in 2006 that the offense turned the ball over too many times.

The Oregon defense gave up over 1,900 yards of rushing last year and too often the defense, after getting a stop was called back onto the field because of turnover. Faaeteete struggled all year with a sore knee but heading into fall camp he is showing the promise the Ducks have been waiting for. During the off-season he set a personal mark of 600 pounds in the squat which is the fourth highest ever recorded for defensive linemen at Oregon.

Faaeteete (6-2) came to Oregon as a 4-star defensive lineman from North Medford High School weighing 265 pounds. Now as a senior he is tipping the scales at 310 pounds and is in great shape. David F. took time to talk about the summer workouts and shared his thoughts about what's ahead for the defensive line.
