Like most young players, Oregon’s Bralon Addison fully admits the speed and pace of the game ( as a true freshman ) sometimes made his head spin.
Asked to describe this season and Addison eagerly confesses the game has slowed and his confidence has raised.
Good college players sometimes take longer to adapt – great college players adapt quickly, which seems to be the case for Addison.
Among a stable of talented receivers, Addison is currently second on the Ducks squad in catches and receiving yards having caught 11 passes for 174 yards. Addison is also tied with TE Johnny Mundt in touchdowns with 2 apiece.
When Addison reminisces about his freshmen season, he quickly flashes back to his level of patience and how it affected his play.
“Your mind is spinning so fast and you’re just trying to do everything right and you think to much as a young guy” said Addison this week.
“I think that happens with a lot of young guys,… and I think after a year of playing and practicing with the team …I see myself out there now,..I’m a lot more comfortable.”
His comfort has translated not just to catching footballs in Oregon’s blur offense, it’s also led to him becoming a dangerous weapon in the Ducks punt return game.
In three games, Addison leads the punt return team with 77 yards and is averaging just shy of 20 yards per return.
