Oregon Football’s “Silver Lining”: Remembering Justin Herbert and the Webfoots

Cameron Johansson Editorials Leave a Comment

Four years ago, Oregon fans were introduced to a tall, lanky and shy kid named Justin Herbert, a kid who felt like his shoes would never be big enough to fill those of departed Ducks living legend Marcus Mariota.
