Duck Start Season with Media Day

Eugene -- The Pac-10 defending champions, Oregon Ducks start camp on Monday when 105 athletes take to the field for the first practice session at 2 p.m. Monday is also Media Day.

The big question of the day will be who takes over the starting quarterback position. Will it be senior Nathan Costa, 6-1, 210 or sophomore Darron Thomas, 6-3, 212.

Red shirt freshman Daryle Hawkins, 6-4, 192 and true freshman Bryan Bennett, 6-3, 174 are also on the roster but Oregon Head Coach Chip Kelly said during the conference media day that he will decide between Costa and Thomas for the starting position.

All but two of the 2010 recruiting class is already in school having enrolled for summer session and participated in summer workouts.

The Ducks open the season on September 4th with a home game against New Mexico and then take a trip to Knoxville, Tenn., the following week against Tennessee.
