Football team set for opener
Of the Emerald
For those doubters who still feel the Oregon
football program hasn’t turned the corner, take a
closer look.
Last Saturday night, the Ducks capped an
impressive spring of practice with a 41-7 dis
mantling of an Oregon alumni team at Autzen
Stadium. The game and the five-week spring
session paints a fine picture for Oregon as they
now prepare to open their season this fall with
three straight home games, beginning Sept.6
against Stanford.
The spring workouts have done wonders for
J .
both the offense and defense. "I think it’s clear
our running backs will be considerably better
than they were," says Duck head coach Rich
On defense "we re more aggressive and
we re tackling better,” adds Brooks. "And that's
without four starters playing this spring."
Defensive end Neil Elshire, defensive tackle
Scott Setterlund, linebacker Chris Cosgrove and
free safety Mike Nolan missed the alumni game
due to injuries
Oregon rolled up 379 yards in total offense
in Saturday’s game, with junior college transfer
Reggie Brown and sophomore Charles Bisharat
combining for 157 yards rushing.
"Bisharat has had a great spring," said
Brooks, who feels the play of Brown makes him a
strong candidate for a starting spot in spring
However, Brown must finish ahead of Dwight
Robertson, the Ducks' starting tailback last
season who is running track this spring.
“He (Robertson) will probably face as
strong a challenge for the starting assignment
as there will be on the team because of the talent
of Reggie Brown,” says Brooks.
Complimenting the running backs will be
senior quarterback Reggie Ogburn, who led the
Ducks in rushing last season with 644 yards.
Ogburn has been injured at times this spring but
played in the alumni game.
"There may be a better running-passing
quarterback in the country," says Brooks. "But I
don't know who it is.”
Tackle Vince Goldsmith will be an essential
element in the Oregon defense. Brooks de
scribes him as “as good a lineman as there is in
the country. He dominated virtually every player
he lined up against the past two seasons.”
Goldsmith is a shotputter for the Oregon
track team this spring but is expected to be
ready by fall. The 5-11, 235 pound senior, an
all-Pac 10 first team selection last year, is de
scribed by Oregon State track coach Frank
Morris as “stronger than most players who are
6-6, 270.”
The spring practices firmly indicate that the
Ducks are ready for next fall and thoughts of a
Pac-10 title are being entertained by some. "We
open with three straight home games next
September,” says Brooks. “What we’re looking
for is three straight sellouts.”
And three straight wins.
Ducks dump Vikings, look to nationals
m us rmai game Deiore xne aiaw national
championships, the Oregon softball team defeat
ed Portland State, 17-6, Tuesday afternoon in
Portland. Oregon’s record on the season is now
The two teams were scheduled to play a
doubleheader, but the Vikings had played Mon
day against Oregon State for the Region 9 Divi
sion II championship and were too tired to play
another game. Portland State won that earlier
game 5-4, but OSU also will go to nationals (May
22-25 in Norman, Okla.) as an at-large team.
Oregon managed 17 runs on only 10 hits,
while the Vikings committed four errors. But the
key factor was the 17 walks given up by PSU
pitcher Deb Fitzhugh.
We'ie working on not hitting bad pitches,"
said Oregon coach Nancy Plantz. “Therefore
we re getting a lot of people on base on walks.”
Rhonda Revelle pitched four scoreless in
nings to register her 11th win of the season. She
has five losses and a 1.70 ERA. Lori Sweet re
turned to the line-up (as the designated hitter) for
the first time since she injured her shoulder in late
April. Sweet was three-for-four at the plate with
two doubles.
The Ducks will play in Omaha, Nebr., on
Thursday, May 22 against Massachussetts in the
first round of the national championships. Mas
sachusetts is 23-1 on the season. The winner
plays May 23 against either Cal-Berkeley or Utah
State. The Bears are ranked second in the nation
and have defeated Oregon three times this year.
