Oregon Ducks

Welcome into a new running NBC Sports Northwest feature; Talkin’ with the Ducks. Joining us on the second edition is the top-ranked guard in the Pac-12 Conference, senior Shane Lemieux. The video above is part one, where we dive into Lemieux's perspective on quarterback Justin Herbert.

Oregon's 2019 offensive line has been pegged to be one of the best, if not THE best, in the nation. Lemieux,  who has started 38 straight games at left guard, says Ducks fans should expect a "nastier, tougher more versatile”  line this season.

Something you may not know about the position group is that they have a dinner together every week. These "O-Line Dinners" have become legendary in Eugene and buffets won't allow them in.
