Red shirt sophomore Bo Thran, 6-5, 303 from Sam Barlow High School in Gresham has toiled out of the spotlight for most of his career at Oregon. He's battled nagging injuries that have kept him out of action but finally healthy he is ready to make a contribution in the 2008 season.
Thran saw time during the camp working with the starting unit when starter Fenuki Tupou was held out. Thran took the opportunity to prove to the coaching staff that if Tupou ever has a problem during the season that Thran is ready to step in and give 100 percent effort.
Coming to the Ducks as part of the 2006 recruiting class, Thran weighed 275 pounds. Over the last couple of years he's added over 28 pounds through hard work and following Director of Sports Nutrition James Harris' guidelines for adding weight without losing strength, endurance or mobility.
While no one wants to see any injuries, fans should be reassured that if something does happen, the Ducks are deep in all positions and as Thran indicates, there isn't a lot of difference between the starters and back ups.
