MEDFORD -- Chad Cota is among the most accomplished athletes to come out of Southern Oregon, starring for Oregon and later for four different teams across eight seasons in the NFL. He was named to the Carolina Panthers' All-Decade Team for their first 10 years in existence. 

Cota's son, Chase, a South Medford High School alum, is in his first season as a wide receiver at UCLA. Chad stopped by Newswatch 12 and sat down with Jacob Kornhauser to discuss all things Ducks football including Mario Cristobal's first year at the helm, whether Justin Herbert is more talented than Marcus Mariota, if OC Marcus Arroyo deserves the criticism he's gotten, DC Jim Leavitt's potential departure for a head coaching position and much more. 

He also recapped Chase's freshman year at UCLA and looks ahead to a bright future in Westwood. Both interviews are in full in the video links at the top of this page.
