The Stanford football team will be fun to watch this year because:
We are winning and we have Randy Fasani running around with the ball. You never know what is going to happen.

Ox, Stone, Bubba and Dewey. Different groups of people call me different names.

Favorite Music Artist:
Creedence Clearwater Revival. That is the music I grew up on.

Favorite Food:
Breakfast in general, but I like bacon, eggs and pancakes.

Favorite non-football activity:
Playing Jeopardy with my teammates. We play every Friday night in the hotel.

Favorite T.V. Show:
The Sopranos.

One word that describes you:

A friend from another college football team:
Ryan Knowles from the University of Idaho. I grew up with him and know him pretty well. We are from the same area.

Favorite midnight snack:
Ice Cream.

Favorite website: I tried to make it on the site, but they didn't put my picture up. Last year I had long hair and got it cut into a mullet for a weekend. I sent them a picture, but they did not put me on. I was very disappointed.

Best advice you ever received:
I have received so much advice from my dad. A little things that he always says like, 'You can't make the club in the tub.' If you are injured and sitting in the tub in the training room, you won't be able to play. So you got to be healthy.

If you were going on a road trip and could only take one CD, which one would you take:
Creedence Clearwater Revival Chronicle Volume One

My most prized possession is:
My truck, not a big truck but I would be lost without it.

Somewhere you haven't been that you'd most like to visit:

If you could play another sport at Stanford, what would it be:
Baseball. I thought really strongly about trying out for the baseball team when I got here. I had a lot of success in high school and I kind of regret not trying out.

Opponent you would most like to beat:
You always want to beat Cal, but I would also say Washington State because it is close to my hometown.

The best part about being a student-athlete at Stanford is:
There are a lot of people that are similar to you.

Something about yourself that few people know:
I really love milk.

Most influential person in your life:
My father.

Favorite gameday meal:
I usually can't eat a whole lot before the game, but the night before we get ice cream.

If I won $1 million dollars, I would:
I would buy myself a new car and then have a big party for all my friends.

Favorite actor:
Tom Hanks is pretty good.

Favorite actress:
There are so many, but I would say Meg Ryan.

What I like most about my hometown:
When I go back home, I feel like I haven't left and I'm real comfortable with all of my friends..

Which of your teammates do you admire the most and why:
Matt Wright. He is phenomenal athlete and is really fun to be around, you never know what's going to happen.
