Stanford Football
Hopes to
Take Another
Step Forward
in 2008
Quarterback Tavita Pritchard led Stanford to victory
over top-ranked USC in his first collegiate start.
F
ew will argue Stanford was a much-improved
football team in 2007 under first-year head coach Jim
Harbaugh.
The final record of 4-8, which included an epic upset
victory over top-ranked USC and a notable win in the
season finale against defending Pac-10 Conference cochampion California, was a three-game improvement
from the previous year, when the Cardinal struggled to
a 1-11 overall mark, including 1-8 in conference play. A
similar leap this year would land Stanford in a bowl game
for the first time since the 2001 season.
Statistically, the Cardinal improved in virtually every
category, most notably on defense, where Stanford
finished with 37 sacks on the year, the fifth-highest total in
the Pac-10, ninth-best in the nation and 23 more than the
previous year’s total of 14. Not to be overlooked is the fact
Stanford went from -11 to +3 in turnover margin, which
was the second best mark in the Pac-10 behind Oregon.
Next steps? A healthier Stanford team that includes 43
returning letterwinners (24 offense, 18 defense, 1 specialist)
and 20 returning starters (9 offense, 11 defense) along with
familiarity of new offensive and defensive systems, should
lead to more consistency across the board. However, at
the end of the day, Harbaugh, a 15-year NFL quarterback,
knows his team will be judged by one thing – results.
“Everything that occurred in our first season is water
under the bridge, gone – never to be replayed,” said
Harbaugh. “However, we can learn from the past. My squad
and I understand that our goals have not been reached.
“The greatest improvements made in a program come
from season one to season two. Nothing stands still; you
are either getting better or getting worse. It’s important to
ask ourselves every day, ‘Are we getting closer to winning
the Pac-10?” It starts today.
“After wins over USC and Cal and the limited success
we had last season, we can’t allow ourselves to feel
comfortable. We have to challenge ourselves in the areas
that need to be addressed in order to move forward.”
Offensively, Stanford welcomes back 24 letterwinners
from last year’s unit that finished last in the Pac-10 in
scoring offense (19.6 points per game) and total offense

(322.5). After going through the growing pains of learning
a new offensive system under Harbaugh, Stanford hopes
familiarity of a new system, stability at quarterback and a
healthy backfield will pave the way to a more consistent
offensive attack in 2008.
Stanford is unsettled at the quarterback position,
which is not being viewed as a big concern heading into
fall camp, as the Cardinal feels it has three legitimate
options with seniors Tavita Pritchard, Michigan-transfer
Jason Forcier, along with junior Alex Loukas, competing
for the starting role. Pritchard has the edge in experience,
having made seven starts among his nine appearances last
year, including an upset over USC in his first career start.
Forcier saw brief time in a reserve role with the Wolverines
in 2006, while Loukas has been an understudy to Trent
Edwards, T.C. Ostrander and Pritchard in his first two
years on The Farm.
Regardless of who earns the start in the August 28
opener against Oregon State, Stanford will be left with
two very capable backup signal-callers, which is a necessity
over the course of a rigorous Pac-10 schedule.
Stanford is banking on a healthy backfield of Anthony
Kimble (115 for 509, 8 TDs) and Toby Gerhart (12
for 140, 1 TD) to shoulder the majority of the run
production after both players missed significant time
due to injuries last season. Kimble saw action in just
seven games, which was all he needed to lead Stanford
in rushing and all-purpose yardage (136.9 per game).
Gerhart was well on his way to possibly shattering
Stanford’s single-game rushing record in the second
game of last season against San Jose State, as he racked
up 140 yards on 12 carries, but suffered a season-ending
injury in the third quarter.
Injuries to Kimble and Gerhart created an opportunity
for Jeremy Stewart, who finished his freshman year as
the team’s second leading rusher with 343 yards on 105
carries (3.3 average). Stewart gained confidence as the
season progressed, rushing for a combined 178 yards over
the final three games of the season.
Establishing depth at wide receiver will be a main point of
emphasis, as the Cardinal looks to offset the losses of three of
its top four receivers from a year ago. Stanford will count on
junior Richard Sherman (39 for 651, 4 TDs) and promising
sophomores Doug Baldwin (11 for 93) and Ryan Whalen
(1 for 11) to offset the losses of Mark Bradford (51 for 642, 3
TDs) and Evan Moore (39 for 481) in the receiving corps. A
big play receiver, Sherman led the team in receiving yardage
and touchdown receptions last season, while Baldwin and
Whalen saw time in a reserve role.
The Cardinal returns two tight ends in seniors Jim
Dray (9 for 116, 1 TD) and Austin Gunder (10 for 86,
2 TDs), however, Dray is a question mark heading into
the season as he continues to heal from a season-ending
knee injury suffered in the TCU game. Notre Dametransfer Konrad Reuland figures to play a large role in
the receiving game starting with the fourth game of the
season at Washington.
Defensively, Stanford welcomes back 18 letterwinners,
including 11 starters, from last year’s unit that was more
improved than numbers alone might indicate. The most
notable change in personnel is on the sideline, where the
Cardinal welcomes 38-year coaching veteran Ron Lynn to the
position of co-defensive coordinator and assistant head coach.
The Cardinal features two preseason honors candidates
on defense. Clinton Snyder (63-33-96), who is on
preseason watch lists for the Bronko Nagurski and Chuck
Bednarik Awards, leads a talented group of starting
linebackers that includes senior Pat Maynor (47-4188) and sophomore Chike Amajoyi (30-17-47). Safety
Bo McNally (71-43-114), last year’s leading tackler and
a candidate for the Ronnie Lott Award, heads up an
experienced secondary that includes returning starters
Wopamo Osaisai (26-19-45), Austin Yancy (36-13-49)
and Kris Evans (27-13-40).
With defensive ends Pannel Egboh (33-16-49) and
Erik Lorig (23-14-37), along with tackle Ekom Udofia
(21-10-31) returning to occupy starting roles upfront,
Stanford is optimistic the improvement this unit showed
a year ago will carry over into the 2008 season.
Stanford’s kicking game will be entirely rebuilt following
the losses of four-year starting punter Jay Ottovegio and
placekicker Derek Belch.
Here’s a position-by-position look at the 2008 Cardinal:
Offense
PLAYER PROFILES
Toby Gerhart (above) was the team’s second-leading rusher as a true-freshman two
years ago. Richard Sherman was the team’s leading receiver each of the past two years.
Wide Receiver
WWW.GOSTANFORD.COM • 33
UNIVERSITY
Junior Richard Sherman (6-3, 191) ranks as the team’s
returning receiver after catching 39 passes for a team-high
651 yards and four touchdowns a year ago. A gifted and
speedy receiver with big play ability, Sherman topped the
team in receiving yardage six times last season and enjoyed
three, 100-yard games. With 73 receptions for 1,232 yards
and seven touchdowns over his first two seasons, he is well
on his way to making an impact on Stanford’s all-time
career receiving charts.
Establishing depth among the wide receivers will be a
key for Stanford this season, following the loss of starters
Mark Bradford and Evan Moore, who combined for 90
catches and 1,123 receiving yards last year. However, the
Cardinal is hoping sophomores Doug Baldwin (5-11,
182) and Ryan Whalen (6-2, 203), along with fifth-year
senior Nate Wilcox-Fogel (6-1, 186) and junior Stephen
HISTORY
As is the case with the running back position, health will
play a large role in Stanford’s tight end situation. Jim Dray
(6-5, 255) is listed atop the depth chart, however, his status is
uncertain heading into fall camp after he suffered a seasonending knee injury in the sixth game of last season against
TCU. If healthy, Dray gives the Cardinal a dependable pass
catcher who has the size and skills to be considered among
the best at his position in the Pac-10 Conference.
If Dray is unable to answer the call, Stanford does have
quality options in seniors Austin Gunder (6-5, 235) and
Tom McAndrew (6-5, 261), sophomore Coby Fleener (6-6,
228) and Notre Dame transfer Konrad Reuland (6-6, 260).
Gunder, who started the last six games of last season
after Dray was lost for the year, finished with 10 catches
RECORDS
Tight End
for 86 yards and two touchdowns. A fifth-year senior, he
started his collegiate career as a linebacker and saw most
of his action on special teams before working his way into
the tight end position.
Fleener did not see action as a true freshman last season
but has excellent size for the position and enough speed
that may allow him to work in at wideout. McAndrew is
a converted linebacker and defensive end who made the
switch to tight end midway through last season.
Reuland joins the Stanford program after spending the
last two seasons at Notre Dame, where he played in seven
games as a freshman and three games last season for the
Irish. A physically gifted player who possesses excellent
size and ball skills, Reuland was a blue-chip recruit out of
Mission Viejo (Calif.) High School and should be a major
factor in Stanford’s tight end fortunes for years to come.
2008 OPPONENTS
With Kimble and Gerhart both sidelined with injuries
for the majority of last season, Jeremy Stewart (6-0, 210)
was called upon to fill the void in Stanford’s running game.
He finished as the team’s second-leading ground gainer
with 343 yards and two touchdowns and gained confidence
as the season progressed, as he combined for 178 yards in
the final three games of the season against Washington State
(54), Notre Dame (54) and California (70).
Sophomore Owen Marecic (6-1, 237) and senior Josh
Catron (6-0, 237) figure to see the majority of action
at fullback. Marecic started all 12 games last season and
earned honorable mention All-Pacific-10 honors, despite
the fact he carried the ball only five times for six yards.
Catron, who enters his fourth year in the program, is a
converted linebacker who has seen most of his action thus
far on Stanford’s special teams units.
Junior Blaise Johnson (5-11, 190) figures to add
depth.
2007 REVIEW
Stanford has plenty of options at running back –
hopefully healthy ones.
Fifth-year senior Anthony Kimble (6-1, 210) has made
24 starts at running back over the last three years and
has led the team in rushing each of the past two seasons.
However, he has missed eight games due to injury over
the last three seasons, including five contests a year ago.
Last season, he finished with 509 yards (72.7 per game)
and led the team in rushing in six of the seven games he
played. His eight rushing touchdowns were the most by
a Stanford back since Brian Allen and Kerry Carter had
nine rushing TDs in 2001. A multi-purpose threat out of
the backfield, Kimble has tallied 45 career catches for 365
yards and two rushing touchdowns.
Junior Toby Gerhart (6-1, 228) hopes to be fully
recovered from a season-ending knee injury suffered in
the second game of last season against San Jose State,
after he had rushed for a career-best 140 yards on
just 12 carries. A tough, aggressive hard-nosed runner,
Gerhart finished the 2006 season as Stanford’s second
leading rusher, topping the team in rushing yards on four
occasions as a natural freshman.
COACHING STAFF
Running Back
SEASON OUTLOOK
The competition for the starting quarterback position
figures to be the most-watched battle of the fall camp,
with seniors Tavita Pritchard (6-4, 198) and Jason
Forcier (6-2, 213) and junior Alex Loukas (6-4, 223) all
vying for the starting role. Regardless of which player wins
the starting job, Stanford will have quality depth at the
position which will serve the Cardinal well during a long
Pac-10 Conference season.
Pritchard has the edge in experience after making
nine appearances and seven starts a year ago, completing
97-of-194 (50%) of his passes for 1,114 yards and five
touchdowns. He secured his spot in Stanford football
lore when he engineered an epic, 24-23 upset of topranked USC in his first career start, connecting with Mark
Bradford on a 10-yard touchdown pass with 0:49 left to
seal one of the biggest upsets in college football history.
Forcier sat out last season after transferring from the
University of Michigan, where he saw action in six games
as a reserve quarterback in 2006. He adjusted well to a
new offensive scheme during spring drills and impressed
coaches with his quickness and mobility.
After spending his first two seasons at Stanford as an
understudy to starters Trent Edwards, T.C. Ostrander and
Pritchard, Loukas demonstrated marked improvement,
poise and confidence during the spring, indicating
he is ready to have a significant impact on Stanford’s
quarterback scenario this season.
“All three quarterbacks will be given ample opportunity
to show what they can do during fall workouts,” said
Harbaugh. “Our team feels confident that anyone of those
three players can help us win football games.”
Heralded freshman Andrew Luck (6-4, 215), who
was rated as the fourth-best prep quarterback in the
nation by Scout.com after passing for 2,684 yards and
19 touchdowns as a senior at Stratford High School in
Houston, Tex., will undoubtedly figure large in Stanford’s
future quarterback plans.
Junior Nicolas Ruhl (6-3, 208) and sophomore L.D.
Crow (6-3, 230) will add depth to a very competitive
quarterback situation.
INTRODUCTION
Quarterback
Outland Trophy and Rimington Award candidate Alex Fletcher
anchors the offensive line. Pannel Egboh (right) has led
defensive linemen in tackles in each of the past two years.
Carr (6-3, 222), will play larger roles in the passing game
this season.
Baldwin eyes a starting role opposite Sherman after catching
11 balls for 93 yards in 12 games last season. He was also a
valuable contributor on special teams, leading the Cardinal in
kickoff returns (23) and kickoff return yardage (555).
Whalen, a product of Monte Vista High School in
Danville, saw action in all 12 games last season and caught
one pass against Washington State. Wilcox-Fogel, a fifthyear senior who made the team as a walk-on in 2004 out
of nearby Menlo High School in Atherton, has lettered
each of the last two years.
Offensive Line
Stanford’s offensive line is long on experience, with
four of the five starting roles expected to be occupied
by seniors who have combined to make 72 career starts.
However, the Cardinal must replace Tim Mattran, who
started all 12 games last season at center.
Outland Trophy and Rimington Award candidate Alex
Fletcher (6-3, 298) moves back to his natural center
position after playing guard last year. A four-year starter
with 32 career starts under his belt, Fletcher earned second
team All-Pac 10 honors last season after making 12 starts
on a much-improved offensive line. He will be backed up
by Chase Beeler (6-3, 276), who sat out last season after
transferring from Oklahoma.
Seniors Allen Smith (6-4, 292) and Chris Marinelli
(6-7, 302) are expected to hold down the left and right
tackle positions, respectively. Smith, who has made 23
starts over the last three seasons, is a bit of a question
mark heading into camp after tearing his patella tendon
in the fourth game of last season against Oregon. If Smith
is sidelined for an extended amount of time, senior Ben
Muth (6-6, 297), who made nine starts in Smith’s absence
last year, is expected to get the starting nod.
34 • WWW.GOSTANFORD.COM
Marinelli started all 12 games at right tackle last season
and now has 17 starting assignments on his ledger dating
back to the 2006 season.
Senior Gustav Rydstedt (6-3, 289) will make the
transition from defensive line, where he played 35 games
and made eight starts, to the offensive line, where he is
penciled in to start at left guard. A native of Stockholm,
Sweden, Rydstedt is an aggressive, smart and athletic
player who picked up the nuances of his new position very
quickly in spring workouts. He will be backed up by junior
Bert McBride (6-3, 285).
Junior Andrew Phillips (6-5, 294), who has made
tremendous strides over the last three years, is expected
to hold down the starting right guard position. He will
be backed up by junior Joe Dembesky (6-5, 286) and
sophomore Brad Hallick (6-6, 287).
Senior Matt Kopa (6-6, 285) will make the switch from
defensive to offensive line and will see plenty of playing
time at both right and left tackle. Sophomore Tyler Mabry
(6-7, 293) also provides versatility up front as a swing
tackle. Sophomore George Halamandaris (6-7, 287) will
work with Marinelli and Kopa at right guard.
Defense
Defensive Line
Stanford returns five players with starting experience to
a defensive front that demonstrated marked improvement
last season from the previous campaign. After employing
a three-man front in 2006, the decision to switch to a
four-man front paid dividends, as the Cardinal finished
fifth in the Pac-10 in sacks with 37 after totaling just nine
in 2006. Stanford averaged 3.08 sacks a game a year ago,
which ranked third in the Pac-10 and 11th nationally. The
Cardinal also recorded 101 tackles for loss a year ago, good
for third in the Pac-10 and fifth nationally.
Stanford’s projected front four includes returning
starters Pannel Egboh (6-6, 270) at left end, senior Erik
Lorig (6-4, 257) at right end, senior Ekom Udofia (6-2,
310) at nose tackle, along with junior Brian Bulke (6-4,
269), who has the inside track for the starting role at
defensive tackle after starting the final two games at the
position to close out last season. Veteran Levirt Griffin
(6-4, 269), who started six games last season, also figures
largely in the mix.
Egboh, a fifth-year senior who has made 24 straight
starts over the last two seasons, has the size, athleticism,
quickness and experience to develop into one of the Pac10’s best pass rushers. He enters his senior season with
109 career tackles and ranks as Stanford’s active career
leader in tackles-for-loss with 21.5. He has led all Cardinal
defensive linemen in tackles each of the last two seasons
after finishing with a career-best 49 stops last year. He also
finished ninth in the Pac-10 with 13.5 tackles-for-loss.
Egboh earned Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Week honors
after recording a career-best 10 tackles, a career-high-tying
2.5 TFL (-13 yds), 1.5 sacks (-11 yds) and his first blocked
kick on an extra point attempt in Stanford’s upset victory
over second-ranked USC.
Lorig appeared in all 12 games and made nine starts
at right defensive end after making the transition from
tight end during spring workouts. A tough and talented
high-energy player, Lorig should be able to improve on his
numbers (37 tackles, 7.5 tackles-for-loss, 2.0 sacks) from a
year ago with a year of starting experience under his belt.
Udofia saw action in seven games and made six starts,
four at right defensive end and two at nose tackle, before
suffering a season-ending ankle injury. One of the top
recruits in the nation at his position in 2005, coaches feel
he still has the ability to develop into one of the Pac-10’s
top defensive linemen.
Bulke showed continued improvement through the
course of last season and worked his way into a starting
role at defensive tackle for the final two games against
Notre Dame and California.
Griffin, who has played in all 24 games and has made
six starts over his first two years at Stanford, figures to see
plenty of playing time up front, working mostly behind
Egboh at left end. He started five of the first six games
of last season and also earned a start against Washington
State in Game 10, finishing with 19 tackles, 2.5 tackles-forloss and one sack.
Matt Masifilo (6-3, 285), who was rated as the seventhbest defensive lineman recruit in the nation coming out of
Campbell High School in Ewa Beach, Hawai’i in 2006,
will be counted on to provide quality depth at both nose
tackle and defensive tackle. Masifilo did not see game
action as a natural freshman but should be a fixture on
the defensive front for years to come.
Sophomore Tom Keiser (6-5, 242), a highly-rated
defensive line prospect out of North Allegheny in Wexford,
Penn., should also factor into the depth on the front four,
working mostly behind Lorig at right end.
Sophomore Matt Bentler (6-5, 292), junior Derek
Hall (6-5, 278) and senior James McGillicuddy (6-3, 291)
round out Stanford’s defensive line personnel.
Linebacker
The linebacker position figures to be the strength of
Stanford’s defense, as the Cardinal returns three starters
from a year ago in Clinton Snyder (6-4, 231), Chike
Amajoyi (6-0, 232) and Pat Maynor (6-2, 220).
Snyder, who is listed on preseason watch lists for
both the Bronko Nagurski and Chuck Bednarik Award
as one of the top linebackers in the nation heading into
the season, sets the tone for Stanford’s defense with his
physical presence and leadership skills. He has started
Skaufel, who made 35 tackles last season as a natural
freshman, is coming off an excellent spring and will push
Yancy for the starting job at free safety.
Junior C.J. Easter (6-0, 188), junior Tyler Porras (6-2,
190) along with sophomore Sean Wiser (6-2, 193) will
compete for spots on the depth chart.
Special Teams
COACHING STAFF
PLAYER PROFILES
Stanford’s special teams units will be virtually rebuilt
from last year’s version, especially in the kicking game
with the loss of four-year punter Jay Ottovegio and
placekicker Derek Belch.
Sophomore David Green (6-1, 193) along with
freshmen Matt Zubyk (6-2, 185) and Daniel Zychlinski
(6-3, 215) will compete for the starting punter position.
Senior Aaron Zagory (6-0, 180) hopes to reclaim the
starting kicker’s duties he held down two years ago. Green
may also figure into the kicking plans, as well.
Walk-on Travis Golia (6-0, 185) may also get a look
during fall camp.
Of the three kickers, only Zagory has intercollegiate
experience. He held down the starting placekicker duties
in 2006 and made 8-of-13 field goals tries while converting
13-of-15 PATs, but lost his job to Belch last season.
Senior Anthony Kimble, along with sophomores Doug
Baldwin and Corey Gatewood, figure to play a significant
role in Stanford’s return game. Baldwin averaged 24.1
yards per kickoff return last season (555 in 23) while
Kimble was also effective, averaging 21.4 yards per return
(385 in 18).
SEASON OUTLOOK
returned his only interception 31 yards for a touchdown
in the third quarter in Stanford’s upset victory over USC.
Originally recruited as a wide receiver (he made six starts
at WR in 2006), coaches feel the lanky junior will combine
his natural skills with added confidence to develop into a
top coverman.
Along with McNally, Osaisai ranks as Stanford’s most
experienced player in the secondary with 13 career starts.
He played in all 12 games and made seven starts at left
cornerback last season, finishing with 45 tackles, including
26 solo efforts. He possibly made the most strides of any
player during spring drills and was selected as the team’s
most improved player at the conclusion of spring workouts.
The Pac-10’s 100 meter track champion, he continues
Stanford’s tradition of outstanding two-sport athletes.
Junior Mark Mueller (6-3, 193), one of the team’s most
versatile players, figures into the picture at left cornerback
behind Osasai after transitioning from wide receiver
during spring drills. A tall, lanky player, he will also be a
valuable contributor on Stanford’s special teams unit.
The starting job at right corner will likely go to
either Evans or Gatewood, although the two could be
interchangeable as the season progresses. Evans saw action
in all 12 games last season, earning starts in each of the
last four contests. He finished the season with 40 tackles
(27 solo), ranked second on the team with seven pass
breakups, one TFL and one forced fumble vs. TCU.
Gatewood moves back to his natural cornerback
position this season after seeing action in 11 games as a
backup running back in ’07. He possesses as much natural
ability as any of Stanford’s defensive backs and needs only
time to develop into a top-flight Pac-10 cornerback.
INTRODUCTION
2007 REVIEW
2008 OPPONENTS
all but two games over the last two seasons and earned
honorable mention All-Pac 10 honors in 2007 after
finishing among the conference leaders in virtually every
defensive category, including fumbles forced (4-t-1st),
tackles-for-loss (14.5-5th), fumbles recovered (3-t-4th),
sacks (8.0-t-7th) and tackles (89-t-9th).
A fifth-year senior, Maynor has played in 30 games and
has made 20 starts over the last two seasons and is tied for
second on Stanford’s active career list with 135 tackles and
19.5 tackles-for-loss. He finished third on the team last
year in total tackles (88) and led the team with a careerbest 16.5 tackles-for-loss. His 1.50 TFL per game average
ranked second in the Pac-10 and tied for 12th nationally.
Amajoyi made an immediate contribution last season
as a natural freshman, finishing with 47 tackles, 9.0
tackles-for-loss and 4.0 sacks. He also tied for the team
lead and ranked fifth in the Pac-10 with three fumble
recoveries. Amajoyi made a seamless transition from
outside linebacker to the middle during spring drills and
seems poised to develop into a major force this season.
Will Powers (6-4, 242), Nick Macaluso (6-3, 236) and
Max Bergen (6-2, 218) also figure prominently into the
linebacker picture.
Powers, a local product from nearby Foster City who
prepped at Serra High School, is expected to see most of
his time backing up Snyder. A physically-gifted player, he
has appeared in 23 of 24 games over the last two seasons,
including four starts.
Macaluso made significant strides last season as a
viable defensive contributor, playing in nine games and
earning six starts. He finished with 23 tackles (15 solo),
2.5 tackles-for-loss and one sack to earn Sporting News
All-Pac-10 freshman team honors. The Middletown, N.J.native finished with a career-high six tackles, including
three solo stops, in Stanford’s upset win over USC. He
should see most of his time this season working with
Amajoyi at middle linebacker.
Bergen, who coaches feel might be the quickest player
among the linebackers, saw plenty of reps during spring
drills and is slated to see most of his time working behind
Maynor at WLB.
Senior Thaddeus Chase (6-0, 210), junior Andrew
Fowler (6-2, 232) and sophomore Johnathan Frink (6-2,
224) add quality depth to this talented unit.

Despite the losses of part-time starters Nick Sanchez (53
tackles; team-high four interceptions) and Tim Sims (31
tackles), Stanford’s secondary is also long on experience,
with veterans strong safety Bo McNally (6-0, 208),
free safety Austin Yancy (6-3, 215) and left cornerback
Wopamo Osaisai (5-11, 199) having combined for 38
career starts over the last three seasons. Stanford also
boasts quality depth in the defensive backfield in senior
Kris Evans (6-0, 182) and sophomore Corey Gatewood
(5-11, 186), who are battling for the starting job at right
corner along with Taylor Skaufel (6-0, 192), who will
make a strong push for starting time at free safety.
McNally, who is included on the preseason watch list
for the Ronnie Lott Trophy, earned honorable mention
All-Pac-10 honors last season after starting all 12 games at
free safety and leading the team in tackles (114). The leader
of the Cardinal secondary, McNally led or co-led the team
in tackles seven times last season and ranked second on
the squad with two interceptions. He ranks second among
Stanford’s active players with 135 career tackles.
Yancy started all 12 games at strong safety last season
and finished with 47 tackles and five pass breakups. He
Bo McNally (left) and Wopamo Osaisai are Stanford’s most experienced players in the secondary.
