The Oregon Ducks are one of the most exciting teams in college football, and even attending one of their practices has to be a thrill. Some local World War II veterans got to take in the experience recently.

As the Ducks prepare for their 2014 spring game, the team took the time to interact with the World War II veterans at practice and even had them join in on a team huddle.

Oregon's simple gesture appeared to be a great success.
