One-On-One: Oregon WR Joe Reitzug (1986-90)

Joe Reitzug had arguably the best hands of any receiver in UO history

Each week FishDuck.com’s Kurt Liedtke (better known as Keeerrrttt1) speaks with current/former student athletes, other FishDuck contributors, and outside experts in a one-on-one conversation–the FishDuck.com One-On-One.

This week Kurt is joined by Oregon Ducks receiving legend Joe Reitzug. Joe came to Oregon as a walk-on wide receiver in 1986 from Tacoma, WA, and found his way onto the field quickly as a valued target for legendary QB Bill Musgrave. Reitzug quickly became a fan favorite for his great hands, his ability to make unbelievable acrobatic catches, and his flair for big blocks and fearless play despite his diminutive stature.

Joe spoke with Kurt about his days as an Oregon Duck, the skills required to make acrobatic catches, his favorite games, a few memorable behind-the-scenes stories, and what Joe Reitzug is up to these days.

    The catch against Cal where he dragged his foot before going out the back of the end zone, and the one-foot-in-bounds at Washington State…still rank as among the best catches ever by an Oregon receiver.
