The Oregon State Senate passed two resolutions, one honoring the entire Ducks football team for its Rose Bowl win over Wisconsin and another for quarterback Justin Herbert.
“So I wish he was here because I wanted to thank him for being a gentlemen, for being a scholar , a very decent and good human being,” said Senate President Peter Courtney (D-Salem). “You should be very proud of him.”
Courtney said he has heard Herbert might want to go into the medical profession and joked OHSU might want to recruit him.
Both resolutions passed the Oregon State Senate unanimously.
