Versatile Nebraska High School Football Product Proves too Worthy to Keep Off the Field
In 2009, former Omaha Central standout Daryle Hawkins got a last minute D-1 offer from the University of Oregon, and now the redshirt freshman is proving why the current No. 1 team in the nation made a wise move.
According to the Oregon Ducks official stats, Hawkins has played in four games in 2010, rushing 18 times for 93 yards and 1 TD and has caught 4 balls for another 26 yards and a TD.
Hawkins was recruited as a QB—still his listed roster position–but apparently the 6-foot-4, 192lbs Hawkins impressed Chip Kelly and his staff enough that they felt they had to get the versatile Nebraska high school product on the field in some capacity.
