Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"People say, `You're a former Duck,' and I say, `Nope, I'm a Duck.' That may be a silly nickname, but to me it means a lot, because they took a chance on me."
--Dan Fouts

"The stuff I remember best, just all the good times with the other offensive line guys...We were real people, a bunch of good old boys who couldn't be happier than we were just fishing and hanging out."
--Gary Zimmerman

"I just liked the fact that Oregon was a place where you could really grow as a person. It wasn't all about football."
--Ahmad Rashad [Bobby Moore]

"Tough love was a hallmark of the great coaches at Oregon...It is not just about being tough in order to get through football practice or even a game, it's teaching a work ethic that will get you ahead in life."
--From the foreword by Mike Bellotti

From the Back Cover

In 1994 Oregon was a lightly regarded football school when Kenny Wheaton's interception return for a touchdown helped beat Washington, vaulted the Ducks into the Rose Bowl, and set the stage for Mike Bellotti's 14-year tenure that elevated Oregon into college football's elite. Oregon stars from past and present, including Pro Football Hall of Famers Mel Renfro, Dan Fouts, and Gary Zimmerman, share in their own words their fond memories of playing in Eugene. Learn about the traditions of Oregon football, as well as the life-changing values learned on the playing field--pride, hard work, commitment to teammates, and much more--in What It Means to Be a Duck.

He is a major Duck's fan, and is great about learning more about all teams. This book was perfect for him, and I couldn't be happier.
