With the losses of Josh Huff, Daryle Hawkins and De’Anthony Thomas, the 2014 corps of Oregon wide receivers have some big shoes,….and stats to fill.
While that may be true to outsiders, those players within the program think they have a chance to be one of the best pass catching groups in the country.
“I think there’s a lot of questions out there now that big time wide receiver Josh Huff is gone,…and there’s a lot of questions to be answered there” said junior wide out Bralon Addison after Friday’s spring football workout.
“I think a lot of people around this country aren’t giving us a chance and I think if you were able to watch us practice I think you would see that in this wide receiver group,…we’re all hungry and we want to get better. We want to get that Oregon wide receiver corps name out there and just make sure that people don’t look over us and respect us.”
With two solid and efficient years in the program, Addison is now being asked to lead this young group of pass catchers which Addison say’s he’s now willing to do.
“I haven’t always been a vocal guy” explained Addison.
“Coach Frost has talked to me a lot about that,…stepping up and being more vocal. In these three practices this spring I’ve done a better job as far as trying to coach up the young guys. Having to remember I’m not a young guy myself anymore so I kind of have to speak up. I’m looking forward to embracing that role and continuing to get better at it.”
