  08/27/21 - DE Mase FunarSr/2024, Oregon

  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
