Last year, Aaron Gipson was a high school senior and played football for Etiwanda High School in Alta Loma, California. Last Saturday, Gipson was playing football for the Oregon Ducks. Aaron not only was playing, but his efforts in fall camp earned him a start as a corner back against Mississippi State in the Ducks season opener. Oregon beat MSU 36-13 and demonstrated total dominance over the Southeastern Conference foe.

Football practice most often means work, sweat, hustle and sometimes it means unbearable pain. On Tuesday morning though practice was fun and lighthearted as the Ducks held a Football Olympics. The events for this less than serious break in the action was such competitive endeavors as an egg catch, a tug-of-war, offensive and defensive linemen catching punts and a football team's version of Sumo wrestling -- the ring-toss. Players like Roderkus Wright (97) are preparing for the first game.
