Oregon football coach Willie Taggart delivers keynote at Kidsports fundraiser
EUGENE, Ore. - First-year Oregon football coach Willie Taggart, off to a 3-0 start this season, gave the keynote speech at the Lunch for KIDS Scholarship Fund event Wednesday.
"You don't enjoy Eugene, you don't enjoy living," Taggart told the crowd.
He talked about the importance of youth sports, and recounted a story about a childhood friend who used her allowance to pay the fees so Taggart could play football. He said he still thanks her to this day for helping him get started in athletics.
