BY JASON VONDERSMITH/PORTLAND TRIBUNE/13 Portland-area players part of Ducks' success

Brady BreezeCentral Catholic product Brady Breeze joined the Oregon program at its low point, during a 4-8 2016 season, and he has talked about his quest to help the Ducks regain their prominence, only two years removed from playing for the national championship.

"It's up to us to get this team going. We gotta get it going," he said in 2016.

Well, fast forward to December 2019, and the 6-0, 195-pound Breeze has been named Pac-12 first-team for special teams, and he has made great plays at safety.

He scored on a fumble return against Nevada and an interception return against USC — adding a fumble recovery versus the Trojans — and then started for the first time and played a great Pac-12 title game with an interception and a team-high nine tackles, including a fourth-down stop of Zack Moss.

Coach Mario Cristobal often praised Breeze for playing hard and being a player who really cared about the UO program.

"I was the little kid dreaming of playing in games like this," said Breeze after the Pac-12 title game. "I finally got my first start, and now we've won a Pac-12 championship. All of my dreams are being accomplished. It's just a blessing."

Breeze is tied for fifth in tackles (51).

La'Mar Winston Jr.His former high school teammate, La'Mar Winston Jr., a 6-2, 225-pound senior, started throughout the year as an outside linebacker. He had 15 tackles and 2 1/2 sacks.

Former Madison High star MJ Cunningham, a 6-2, 235-pound redshirt freshman linebacker, factored into a big win, replacing Troy Dye and making four tackles as Oregon routed Colorado.
