Oregon football player Holden Whipple, a West Salem graduate, practices for the Ducks.

Holden Whipple wasn’t sure he could end up at his dream school when he was in his recruiting process in high school. 

But after taking an indirect path, the West Salem High School graduate is happy being in the Oregon football program. 

“I’ve wanted to be a Duck my whole life,” said Whipple, a walk-on offensive lineman with the Ducks. “That’s always been the dream of where I wanted to play college football.”

Whipple is a Pac-12 athlete like his older sister, Paige, who played volleyball at Arizona. 

Whipple’s original football recruiting process out of high school came during the height of the pandemic. 

During his senior season at West Salem, the Titans went 6-0 in a condensed spring 2021 season, when the OSAA decided to have a shortened regional football season to limit travel during the pandemic.
