Even if the season is postponed or canceled, we will continue to highlight more than a hundred teams and more than a thousand players in Oregon.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Dawson Douglas, sr., WR/DB

Sixth in Class 5A in regular-season receiving touchdowns in 2019, Douglas will see his spot in the formation shift throughout his senior year as new coach Berk Brown tweaks the offense. “We’re going to line him up wherever we think the matchup is the best,” Brown said. Douglas knows the playbook inside and out — as one would expect of the offensive coordinator’s son — so he’s more than up to the task. He’ll also play safety.
