Q & A: Zack Quaccia

How have you been able to put the events of last week behind you and get ready for this week's game against Arizona State? 'It's been tough. On the first day I didn't think you really realized how significant it was but I think now people are starting to settle down and things are starting to roll again.'
What is your favorite aspect of playing an offensive line position?'I would say that playing with four other guys and being able to build a good camaraderie. You have to trust them and at the same time, have them trust you.'
What other schools recruited you? Why did you pick Stanford University?'I talked to some of the Pac-10 schools and a lot of the WAC schools, and I picked Stanford because my brother came here for baseball. He's four years older than me, and I would always come up and watch his games. I got a good chance to see the campus because of that, and I thought it was a nice place so I chose to come here.'
I noticed you were a history major. How do you think the events of last week will be viewed in history fifty years from now? 'It's kind of hard to say right now. I think the events will be on people's minds at least for the next few years.'
Which game in your Stanford history was the most exciting and why? 'Definitely the Rose Bowl. That's the only bowl we've been to and it was awesome just playing inside that stadium with the huge crowd and everything. It was neat because we were playing Wisconsin and their guys were red and we were wearing red so it was pretty awesome.
