Oct 28, 2020


Celebrating #TightEndU

Stanford joined the NFL in celebrating #NationalTightEndsDay on Sunday. With more tight ends drafted since 2010 than any school (8), the most tight ends on NFL Opening Weekend active rosters nine straight season and five Pro Bowl selections the last three seasons, Stanford can certainly stake its claim as #TightEndU.
