With one game left at Autzen Stadium in 2018 for Oregon Football, the senior class will be honored ahead of the game in what is typically a special moment. Many Oregon seniors have broken out this year, as Ugo Amadi and Justin Hollins have put up arguably the best statistical seasons of their strong UO careers. While defensive lineman Jalen Jelks hasn’t put up the phenomenal statistical showing he had in his junior campaign, his versatility, attitude, and leadership have made him a player to remember in the years to come.
STORY: Versatile Jalen Jelks Showing Value as Senior Despite the Numbers
#16 Oregon lost to the Colorado Buffaloes 3-2 (25-19, 22-25, 21-25, 25-20, 14-16) Friday night for the Ducks last home regular season game. The team celebrated the contributions of their seniors: Haley McLaren, Sumeet Gill, Lauren Page, August Raskie and Lindsey Vander Weide. Willow Johnson led the way with a season-high 18 kills, while Brooke Nuneviller had a strong 30 digs. Coach Ulmer praised the competitive level of the team as they faced a hungry opponent in Colorado.
