Kyle Long is on the Offensive
September 6, 2012, 1:18 pm
Ducks Offensive Lineman, and son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Howie Long, Kyle Long joined John on the Bald Faced Truth today. This is Kyle's first season playing football in Eugene, after a more than successful high school career in baseball.
Canzano asked Kyle about his Baseball career, and whether he missed it now that the sport is behind him.
"Initially I just really wanted to buck the family trend. I kind of got sick of hearing about football. Once I realized what I was doing, I needed to get back into football, and get back on the field. I haven't looked back since."
Last Saturday's game against Arkansas was Kyle's first chance to get out onto the Duck field. He had nothing but praise for his first experience as a Duck, and even more for the ecstatic fan-filled stadium.
"That awesome crowd is pretty crazy. It's everything that I had expected and more."
Kyle and John also touch on Offensive Line coach Steve Greatwood, who is now in his 21st season as coach for the Ducks. Listen to the rest of the interview below:
