Ducks' De'Anthony Thomas: Doing More With Less

By Jim McCoy Wed 5th September Sportscollege footballDe'Anthony ThomasOregon Ducks

De'Anthony Thomas played less than a half in No. 4 Oregon's season opener and still managed to show that he's the flash in the Ducks' prolific offense.

     Handling the ball just eight times, Thomas managed 125 total offensive yards and three touchdowns in Oregon's 57-34 victory over Arkansas State. He retired to the bench midway through the second quarter.

     Thomas had three carries for 64 yards and a touchdown. He caught four passes from redshirt freshman Marcus Mariota for 55 yards and two scores. And he returned a punt six yards.

     Thomas was already getting Heisman Trophy buzz before the opener. Last season, he set an Oregon freshman record with 18 touchdowns, rushing for seven, catching nine and adding two on kickoff returns.
