Oregon Ducks running back De’Anthony Thomas is really fast. Okay, we knew this, but it still doesn’t mean that we can’t thoroughly enjoy it every time he decides to remind us just how much faster he is than other human beings.
With their opponent on Saturday, the Virginia Cavaliers not exactly known for their ability to keep up with other team’s running abilities, we all had a feeling that we’d see Thomas showcase himself at some point in the game.
And that he did.
We got treated to the show very early on in the Ducks’ contest with the Cavaliers. In the first quarter, Thomas did this:
Taking the handoff from QB Marcus Mariota, Thomas took off down the right side and the Virginia defense never really had a chance. What may be even more impressive than his blazing speed, though, may have been the athleticism that he used to keep himself in bounds and get the six points.
Nonetheless, the Black Momba blew us all away again.
