Avalos Discusses Defense

April 9, 2019

On Tuesday Oregon defensive coordinator Andy Avalos spoke with the media following practice. 

The Ducks have seemingly turned a corner defensively under the guidance of Andy Avalos. The scrimmage on Saturday in Hillsboro was another example of the steps this defense has taken.

With some new faces and some new looks on D, the media asked about what Avalos is doing and how much of his defense has currently been installed to this point.

On the Defense Overall:

“We got a bunch of hungry guys that are willing to learn and adjust to Oregon’s defense. The guys are working hard and they’re excited about what we’re doing.”

On the Scrimmage Performance:

“There’s a lot of hard work that goes into this game. When we get on the field we want to have fun. The players go as we go. We were able to pressure the QB, we want to get three takeaways everytime we step on the field.”

On Kayvon Thibodeaux’s Spot:

“That’s where he’s been the whole time. Hand in the dirt. Very disruptive in the pass game. We’re excited with what he’s doing.” 

On the Install:

“We’re about halfway down with that. We’re starting to put more fronts in and move some guys around.” 

On Multiple Fronts:

“We’re going to be multiple, we’re going to move around. We want the offense to react to us so we can play on the attack as well.”
