One of the sublime joys of sports is witnessing the unfolding of greatness and dreams.
Duck fans are in the midst of one of the game's special stories, and a parallel story is developing in Kentfield, California, where the present of Duck football touches on the future.
Quarterback Morgan Mahalak, the Duck verbal commit who has already established himself as the leader and spokesman of the 2014 class, finally got to play in the second half of a football game. It was only two plays, but enough time to throw his first second half td in a 55-0 victory. In all he completed 13-22 for 314 yards and 5 tds, adding 3 carries for 31 yards on the ground.
Like Marcus Mariota the younger quarterback had to wait until his senior year to become a starter. Like his predecessor at Oregon he leads a team that is 6-0 and striving for a championship season. Each of them seem to be growing by the week in their command of the offense and their readiness to complete the journey. (247sports.com photo)
