Each week O Heroes sits down with one of our student-athletes to get to know more about them on and off the court. This week’s feature is on Amanda Delgado, a sophomore on the Oregon women’s basketball team. A native to Las Vegas, Nev., Delgado is pursuing an undergraduate degree in digital arts.

Delgado has played an active role in serving the Eugene/ Springfield community. Her dedication to giving back has made a positive impact on the kids she works with.

Over the few years, she has volunteered at numerous O Heroes events including: Battle of the Books, KIDSPORTS Invitational, and Thanksgiving Basket Drive. Her enthusiasm for giving back is an inspiration to fellow student-athletes and community members.

After graduation, Delgado aspires to play overseas, and start her career in graphic design. In addition, she plans to help coach kids and remain active within the community, post-graduation.
