O Heroes Set Aside Rivalry for Habitat for Humanity Co-Build with OSU
Release Date: 05/11/2011
"It's great to put the rivalry aside for a weekend, get together, and do something great for the community," said Wolff, "I had the opportunity to do this my freshman year, and I had a blast. Unfortunately, the tradition almost died out over the past few years. I wanted to bring it back and I hope that getting some younger guys involved today will revive it and keep it going."
A total of twenty Oregon athletes served alongside Wolff, a two-time All-American javelin thrower form Newburg, OR that day. "Getting up at 7 A.M. on Saturday morning after a meet isn't the easiest thing to do," said junior hammer thrower Cam Norris, "but I think it speaks to our strength as a team and our commitment as an athletic department to community service."
Wolff and his teammates will compete for their 5th straight Pac-10 championship this weekend in Tucson, AZ. It will not be an easy road to victory, however, as the top three teams are projected to score within 12 points of each other. The Ducks, who are slated third, tied Pac-10 favorite UCLA in a dual meet earlier this year at Drake Stadium in Los Angeles and have vowed to defeat the Bruins and claim the Pac-10's last championship trophy before the conference becomes the Pac-12 in July.
