PERSONAL — Born Christopher Adam Vincent on Sept. 3, 1981 in Philadelphia, Pa. Parents: Malvin Vincent and Angelica Wilson. High School (Coach): Neshaminy (Mark Schmidt) 2001. Major: Sociology. Redshirt: 2002.
HIGH SCHOOL/BEFORE OREGON — The Bucks County Courier Times first-team all-area offensive standout rushed for 1,245 yards and 16 touchdowns (6.1 avg.) his senior year at Neshaminy (Pa.) High School in 1999, accumulating six 100-yard games and one 200-yard contest. He completed the prep circuit rushing for 458 yards and two touchdowns at Valley Forge (Pa.) Military Academy in 2000. The all-league running back and Trentonian (N.J.) Times all-area honoree was voted to play in the all-county all-star game in 2000 as one of the top athletes in the state of Pennsylvania. Originally signed with Louisiana State and participated in spring and fall workouts in 2002 before transferring to Oregon in October.
OREGON — Is projected to return to a running back post this fall following a one-year hiatus after initiating a switch to linebacker during the 2005 spring drills. Is an extremely intelligent football player who is hoped to benefit from gaining a knowledge of the defense’s perspective. Complements great vision and an understanding of the game with an added toughness and improved speed, as evidenced by shaving .10 seconds off his previous electronic 40 best (4.54). Can improve his chances for extensive playing time by retaining the same defensive intensity on the offensive side of the ball. Needs to utilize his size to his advantage to evolve from a finesse back into a power runner.
2005 — Season spent in a reserve role in his first year at linebacker and continued to be a valuable asset on special teams. Finished fourth in tackles (10) on the kick coverage units where he also recovered a fumble at Stanford, and accumulated 13 tackles overall. Made appearances in all 12 games (season-high 24 snaps vs. Montana), recording a career-high five stops against Fresno State.
2004 — Carried the football four times for 25 yards against Idaho and Arizona, but made his mark as a special teams standout. Applauded for work on kick units as team’s Special Teams Player of the Week following wins over the Vandals and Stanford, posting four of his seven tackles vs. Idaho. Also added two stops against Washington in addition to recovering one fumble.
2003 — Was part of Oregon’s multiple-back concept for a majority of the season. Earned the starting nod at Arizona and vs. No. 3 Michigan. Had his best outing against the Wildcats, rushing for 77 yards on 21 carries to lead all rushers. Combined with two other running backs to rush for over a 100 yards in opener at Mississippi State, finishing the game with 49 yards on seven carries. An ankle injury set his progress back a bit, but did manage to play in 10 of 13 contests. Put up his career-long run (23 yards) vs. Mississippi State.
2002 — Sat out the season to comply with transfer requirements and was team’s offensive scout team player of the week for preparations leading up to a victory over UCLA.
