After Oregon's win over Colorado yesterday, O'Hara Catholic School (Ore.) sixth-grader Charlie Pape' asked Ducks coach Mark Helfrich a question. We learned that Charlie Pape' doesn't do softballs.
The middle-schooler asked if quarterback and NFL draft prospect Marcus Mariota would return to Oregon next season. Pape' explained why he wanted to know so badly: "There's three things that go on at O'Hara Catholic—or, four, OK? There's Jesus, there's girls, and there's Marcus Mariota."
(Pape' never revealed the fourth.)
