Oregon Ducks running back Kenjon Barner and linebacker Michael Clay were both interviewed by SB Nation at Pac-12 Media Day.
There will be big shoes to fill for Oregon running back Kenjon Barner with LaMichael James in the NFL now. Barner has generally been the running partner-in-crime with James, but now he has to learn to carry the load considering De'Anthony Thomas will never be handling many carries from the backfield. It's Barner's backfield and he will have to do his best to shoulder the load with a new quarterback being broken in beside him.
In this video Barner discusses why he decided to return to Eugene for his senior season when he had the option to turn pro. Barner talks about the impact he has on this season now that he will be the feature back, plus he also touches on the famed Chip Kelly hot tub.
Oregon linebacker Michael Clay also returns and figures to be one of the senior leaders on what could be the best defense in the conference. Clay touches on what it means to being a leader and how good of a bowler he currently is.
