The attitude was born at an early age for Oregon receiver Josh Huff. As a 12-year-old playing youth football, Huff remembers vividly a game when one particular defender seemed to tackle him every time he touched the ball.
That, Huff said, had never happened. At halftime, a cousin pulled Huff aside and challenged him to be more aggressive against that defender.
It was that day that breaking tackles became an art form for Huff.
"Ever since then," he said, "I've never let one person bring me down."
That has been his mindset, anyway. And one Kenjon Barner has honed this season after some prodding from UO running backs coach Gary Campbell.
