Receiver Josh Huff hopes to remake his legacy in his final season at Oregon.
Huff has had a rocky career for the Ducks. He's been dogged by injuries. He's been in an offense that puts more emphasis on the run than the pass. And he still worries that an arrest that resulted in a full acquittal may have nonetheless tarnished his reputation.
Last season Huff had a career-best 32 catches for 493 yards and seven touchdowns. His numbers likely would have been better had he not been slowed down by a left knee injury.
But he says everything he's gone through has made him stronger and he's ready to make a statement this season, which opens Saturday when the third-ranked Ducks host Nicholls State.
