An All-American's Take on Barrett Jones

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Academic, but still...

As a fan of both of the State of Oregon's Pac 12 football teams (yeah, college ball... and I don't even have the balls to choose UofO or OSU... ) , I think some of you might like this... First though:

Carson York was a 4 year starter on the Offensive Line for Oregon, his final season coming this last year, as he, as a redshirt senior, blew out his knee in the second week.

York was a stud. The top player out of Idaho, he was an all-freshman in the Pac 10, then an All-Pac 10/2 player for multiple years as well as an Academic All American. Smart as well as being a damn good football player on a damn good team (In the 4 years in which he played, the Ducks' team went to a Rose Bowl, National Championship, Rose and Fiesta Bowl, winning the last 2 games)...

I give you this brief football bio so you understand: Carson York knows football. He's a smart guy who started on a Rose Bowl team as a Frosh. He majored in journalism, graduating a couple of years ago. This, the Spring of 2013, still his redshirt senior year, he's due to leave Oregon with a grad degree in journalism...

Now, play the following interview and forward it to about the 6:30 mark. Hear what York thinks of your new Center (or Guard) Barrett ... NOW, (if you don't want to listen to a pretty damn good review of the upcoming LSU / Alabama game, ) forward again to about the 17:30 minute mark and just listen to the rest of the interview (or at least the next 7 or 8 minutes) ... I won't tell you what he says, but it should WET your appetite for September. (And congrats on a terrific draft.. sorry to see Steven Jackson won't be there to enjoy it...) Good luck building a winner!
