Ducks unveil Marcos Mariota Sports Performance Center

Marcus Mariota was one of the greatest college quarterbacks we’ve seen in recent memory, and the former Heisman winner’s legacy lives on in Eugene.

Some legends have their jersey retired. That’s an incredible gesture, but does it compare to having a sports performance center named in your honor?

Congratulations to Mariota, but perhaps more importantly, the players who get to use his sports performance center.
