Stanford Athletics Highlights:Now in his fifth season on The Farm, Biselli comes into the 2001 season as a former First-Team All-Pac-10 placekicker and among the school's all-time best in several scoring categories ... Begins the season seventh all-time at Stanford in PATs (75), tied for ninth in field goals (21) and just 39 points shy of moving into the school's all-time top-10 scoring list (he scored 141 points entering the '01 campaign) ... Has made 21-of-29 field goals and 75-of-81 PATs as Stanford's starting kicker.

The Stanford football team will be fun to watch this year because:
I think we've got some playmakers on both sides of the ball and we're good in the special teams area. Our team has guys that can break a game open with just one play.

Favorite Music Artist:
Dave Matthews Band.

Favorite Food:
Chicken Cacciatore.

Favorite non-football activity:

Favorite TV Show:
I don't have a lot of time to watch TV since I'm studying most of the time, but I actually really got into Big Brother 2 even though it was a horrible show. For some reason though I liked it.

If you could have dinner with a famous person, living or dead, who would it be:

Favorite Athlete:
Morten Anderson for a kicker, but my favorite athlete would have to be Sammy Sosa.

Favorite midnight snack:
Domino's Pizza.

Favorite website:

If you were going on a road trip and could only take one CD, which one would you take:
Dave Matthews - Under the Table and Dreaming.

Opponent you would most like to beat:

The best part about being a student-athlete at Stanford is:
You're surrounded by amazing people- not just athletically but also academically and artistically. You're around people who excel in all areas of life.

Most influential person in your life:
My dad.

Favorite gameday meal:
Lasagne with green beans on the side.

If I won $1 million dollars, I would:
Donate one-third to half of it away and buy a Mercedes Benz CLK55 and send my parents on a world trip.

Favorite actor:
Kevin Spacey.

What I like most about my hometown:
The close proximity to Lake Tahoe.

Which of your teammates do you admire the most and why:
Randy Fasani- he's my best friend and also I admire him because he doesn't succumb to what other people think of him and handles pressure really well. He lives up to what he says and is just a great guy.

Nobody knows how much I like:

One word that describes you:

A friend from another college football team:
Mike Nugent (PK) from Ohio State and Chris Griffith (PK) from UCLA.

Something about yourself that few people know:
Sometimes I get choked up during certain movies, I'm kind of a softy when it comes to that.
