My friends, I work with all the sites dedicated to Oregon football, but one man really stood out in being able to find information that no one else could, especially in the Oregon Football Recruiting world. Justin Hopkins has simply been incredible for Oregon fans and so much of the recruiting information you read on these pages came from him after his readers enjoyed the delicious news first.
He was very generous in sharing his expertise with FishDuck.com readers, and in turn we promoted the site at which he previously worked. It worked well for both parties as Jhop is a stand-up, hard working, honorable man. I am delighted with his big announcement below, and wish to support him enthusiastically and urge others to join him.
Jhop has returned! He is going to be able to do some amazing things now that he is independent, and I can’t wait to watch! Charles Fischer
You didn’t really think I would stay gone did you?
Jhop is back boys and girls. Bringing it to you from my all new site, ScoopDuck.com.
It brings me great joy and a sense of pride to have this opportunity. Many of you know there is no greater feeling than owning your own business, and now I can consider myself among those of you.
For those of you that don’t know me, it’s pretty easy. I’m Jhop, Justin Hopkins, living in beautiful Southern Oregon. I have three amazing kids that love to play sports (and love even more when I coach them), and I write about the Oregon Ducks. (Sometimes craft beer, too.)
I’ve met so many of you around town, at games, at Duck clubs. You name it, I’ve run into a lot of you amazing Duck fans.
For the last eight years, I’ve invested my time and efforts into this Oregon market getting to know recruits, coaches, fans and just about everyone in between. With my hard work and passion for what I do, I’ve been fortunate enough to become one of the top insiders in this unique Oregon football market. And as many of you know, that’s no easy task.
I’m not afraid to speak my mind, and I’m not afraid to put in the work.
I’m definitely not afraid to go the extra mile to get the real inside scoop about your beloved Ducks whether it be injury reports to official visits to coaching news. I cover it all, and I absolutely love doing it.
While Charles and the crew here at FishDuck.com have a TON of great insight to offer you, come see what we have at ScoopDuck.com, too. We offer free accounts along with our low-cost subscriptions, and we have a great community of insightful posters that love the Ducks just like you do.
Best of all, like this site, you are supporting an Oregon business. Local people that will turn around and put that money right back into our own economy.
This site is going to be special. It’s going to be a much-needed breath of fresh air in this community. Come take a look at what we are offering and let’s ‘Do Something’ together.
