 Mase Funa, Oregon, Player News

  As Oregon's strong-side linebacker, Mase Funa's job is to set the edge of the defense, a task made difficult by opposing offensive tackles and tight ends. As the field-side edge defender, Funa is responsible for cutting down what can be a vast amount of grass for the opposing offense to utilize. "It's a huge role with all that space with the offense has to work on with the field," Funa said. "I try to make it easier on everybody else on the defense to try to set the edge so the running back or the quarterback doesn't have too much space to work with when it comes to running the ball." It's a responsibility Funa has done well in his first two seasons with the Ducks, with 31 tackles including 3.5 for loss in seven games last season.

He was even more disruptive as a freshman, with 8.5 tackles for loss with four sacks, and with a full season and different defensive scheme under Tim DeRuyter, Funa could see more opportunities to get into the backfield against the run as well as the pass. "He's always been a great striker and it's showing up really well," Oregon coach Mario Cristobal said. "He sets edges like very few people do; he can get hands on a tight end, he can take on double teams with tackles and tight ends or tight ends and wings. Set edges, turn the run back and he's also slippery in the pass game as well. Got a great power rush, he's really developed his speed and explosiveness." - The Oregonian

  The schematic changes coming to Oregon's defense are less pronounced at the strong-side linebacker spot, where Mase Funa returns. The Sam linebacker plays on the boundary side in Tim DeRuyter's defense and is similar to the Stud end in Andy Avalos' system. There are some differences though. "I would say it would be more of the edge more so like 9 (techniques)," Funa said. "I feel like we're playing more of a true outside linebacker position with More Coverages, more drops, while also keeping our edge rush and playing inside on the 6 and (one spring practice) they also had us running in through the 3 tech."

Funa is a multi-year starter and gets somewhat overlooked compared to Kayvon Thibodeaux, Noah Sewell or Isaac Slade-Matautia but is in their same caliber of importance to the Ducks defense. Funa is one of Oregon's players who actually was more productive in the short 2020 season, with 31 tackles, than he was in 2019 (26) despite there being half as many games. That's due in large part to the increased number of reps and portion of snaps for Funa, who should be in for just as big a role this fall. "There's some similarities to it with Avalos' defense, but with all the new installs and everything else, I love it," Funa said of the new defense. - The Oregonian

  Bryson Young had a breakout senior season at the Stud position, which is always productive in Avalos' defense. Mase Funa is the clear favorite to take over as starter and Isaac Townsend and Treven Ma'ae are both coming off redshirt seasons but spent time with the second and third-team defenses, respectively, during the spring. Most of Funa's disruptive plays came against weaker nonconference play, but that has more to do with Young's ascent into a dominant force than anything. With more reps should come more explosive and disruptive plays from Funa, who will get to face a comparatively weaker mix of offensive tackles due to player graduations and opt outs. - The Oregonian
