It is fun to go down memory lane involving not only our beloved Ducks, but also members of the FishDuck.com team. In 2009 at Stanford–Oregon trailed as Jeremiah Masoli led a furious comeback but we came up a little short. There was a TD pass play where Masoli threw a 32 yard TD to a streaking Jeff Maehl who barely kept his foot in the back of the end zone. There was a photographer who was seen getting knocked down, and since it was replayed over and over as they reviewed the play…our own Craig Strobeck became locally famous as that photographer who knew how to “Duck.”
This is the image (right) Craig clicked as he was diving out of the way. He was shooting for the “Mighty Oregon” publication at that time (FishDuck.com did not begin until 2011) and this photo made that week’s cover of the magazine. Now he’s a trivia question! Way to go Craig!
Go to 47 minutes and 36 seconds on the video below and see Craig be a total pro and take one for the team! He takes incredible photos at Oregon home games and you will see his work on the pages of FishDuck.com every day.
