Getting to Know...Nate Wilcox-Fogel

Sept. 17, 2008

Nate Wilcox-Fogel grew up in the shadows of Hoover Tower. A fifth-year senior who made the team as a walk-on in 2004, Nate attended nearby Menlo School in Atherton, where he lettered in football, basketball and lacrosse.

A back-up wide receiver and a valuable special teams contributor, Nate has lettered each of the last two seasons after not seeing any game action in his first two seasons on The Farm. His hard work and determination paid off this year, as he was elevated to scholarship status early in fall camp.

After earning his undergraduate degree in public policy, Nate is currently working on his master's in management science and engineering.
