Oregon strength and condition coach says team is really fast

The Oregon Ducks are aiming for improved speed and strength in 2018. According to Oregon speed and conditioning coach Aaron Feld, some Ducks cans fly.

Feld said four Oregon players recently ran 21 miles per hour during a speed test, per 247 Sports’ Matt Prehm. The strength and conditioning coach didn’t identify which four players ran 21 miles per hour (Oregon’s accomplished track and field program might be interested).

Oregon is conducting spring practice on Wednesday. Feld’s initial reaction to this year’s team is that they are faster. That is encouraging news for Ducks Nation.

Speed will be necessary for the Ducks to move up in the Pac-12 after a mediocre 7-6 season. Speed and mobility will be a point of emphasis as Oregon gears for 2018.
