Ducks Lose Two Players from Football Squad

April 3, 2001

EUGENE - University of Oregon fullback Adam Kennybrew will be forced to forego his final two years of his collegiate football career due to a foot injury while freshman Dee White has decided to leave the team due to personal reasons, Ducks' head coach Mike Bellotti announced Tuesday.

Kennybrew, a 6-0, 231-pound two-year letterman from Beverly Hills, Calif., was advised by team physicians that a broken navicular bone in his right foot, which probably occurred prior to his 1998 Oregon enrollment, likely would never completely heal. His decision to step aside due to medical reasons will enable him to remain on athletic financial aid and complete his degree in education.

The former Beverly Hills High School quarterback switched to fullback his second season, where he rushed five times for 14 yards and one touchdown in addition to making 10 special teams tackles in 21 games the past two years.

White redshirted his only season with the Ducks after predominantly playing defensive end and tight end in Thornton, Colo.

The departure of the two players leaves Oregon with four fullbacks the remainder of spring drills, which conclude April 28.
