My Saturday nights are normally spent with my family watching re-runs of AFV and playing board games. But, last night, the story was different. I was given the opportunity to be on the field and photograph the Ducks beating the Coyotes 62-13. What an amazing experience.
Autzen Stadium is such a great place to shoot a football game, I feel very fortunate to be down at field level capturing the action; being able to photograph an elite football team in action is quite an honor.
Ten freshman, including Freeman and Wide Receiver Charles Nelson made debuts on Saturday. Nelson, wearing number six(sound familiar) had a punt return for a touchdown and comparisons were being made to a former Oregon Duck, De’Anthony Thomas.

Four games remain in the Northwest League schedule for the Eugene Emeralds including the final two games with Vancouver on Thursday and Friday and the final road trip of the season at Hillsboro starting on Saturday night.

If the Eugene Emeralds are trying to make a push to the playoffs, they are running out of time and losing won’t help their cause. It does not help when statistics are not on your side either and when the opposing team has an over .700 percentage when scoring first. Vancouver did it for the […]
The season starts on Saturday against South Dakota and although I am likely among the few in the category I can see the Oregon Ducks losing at home to the Coyotes. Yes, I actually wrote that.
