Oregon and new coach Willie Taggart have an interesting award for the Special Teams Player of the Week. When Taggart came over from South Florida, he brought with him the idea of a WWE-style title belt awarded to the team’s best special teams player. The award would be given out after every game.
“Sometimes guys can take special teams for granted, but only if you allow that as coaches,” said Taggart said, per GoDucks.com. “Our guys have taken pride in it. Everybody wants to wear the belt.”
Well, this week the Ducks special teams took it to the next level. Kicker Aiden Schneider and long snapper Tanner Carew went into the boxing ring at the Oregon football facility to duke it out for the title belt.

Of course this was just for show. But the belt, as seen below, is no joke.
