Checking in with Ducks at the world track and field championships. Matthew Centrowitz was eliminated from his quarterfinal heat, Deajah Stevens is still alive.

Here’s yesterdays practice report. The defense remains in the advantage in most drills through the second week of camp.

Some sad news, as reported in the comments yesterday, John Taggart, Willy’s father, has passed away. Thoughts and prayers are with the Taggart family.

The Ducks are experimenting with multiple back sets this fall, including up to three backs at a time. I assume Taggart got the idea when he heard me yelling in my living room at Helfrich to use more than one back at a time.
