On the Cover: After breaking Stanford’s single-season rushing record last season, Toby Gerhart looks to continue his rapid ascent on the school’s all-time career
rushing list. He needs 527 more yards to climb into the top five, joining Darrin Nelson
(#31), Brad Muster (top left), Anthony Bookman (4), Glyn Milburn (5) and Mike Mitchell
(32). A second team All-Pac team selection last season, Gerhart finished third in the
conference in rushing average and totaled a school-record eight, 100-yard games.

over his first two seasons…the Cardinal has increased its win total each of
the last two seasons with Harbaugh at the helm…after guiding his inaugural squad to a 4-8 (3-6 Pac-10) finish in 2007, Stanford posted a 5-7 (4-5
Pac-10) record last season…last second losses at UCLA and Oregon stood
in the way of Stanford landing its first bowl appearance since 2001…his
overall coaching record, which includes a three-year stint at the University
of San Diego, stands at 38-21…Harbaugh came to Stanford after guiding
USD to back-to-back Division I-AA Mid-Major national titles in 2005 and
’06…he compiled a three-year record of 29-6 (.829) at San Diego, including
11-1 campaigns in each of his final two seasons…a former quarterback,
Harbaugh enjoyed a 15-year (1987-2001) NFL career with five different teams
after entering the league as a first-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears
in 1987…after seven seasons in Chicago (1987-93), he went on to play
with Indianapolis (1994-97), Baltimore (1998), San Diego (1999-2000) and

Stanford Opens Season
on Sept. 3 at Washington
State
Stanford will open the 2009 season
against the Washington State Cougars on
Thursday, Sept. 3 in Pullman, Wash. The
game was originally scheduled for Sept.
5 but has been moved up two days to
accommodate a television audience on a
yet-to-be-named network.
This marks the second straight season
Stanford has opened on a Thursday
night. Last year, the Cardinal defeated
Oregon State, 36-28 on Aug. 28 at
Stanford Stadium before a national television audience on ESPN 2.
Toby Gerhart enters the 2009
season needing 527 more
yards to move into the top
five on Stanford’s all-time
career rushing list.
Home and Away
A look at Stanford’s 2009 schedule
has the Cardinal playing seven games at
home and five on the road, a reverse from
last season when Stanford posted a 1-6 record in seven away games and
went 4-1 on its home turf.
After opening with back-to-back road games at Washington State (Sept.
3) and Wake Forest (Sept. 12), Stanford will play seven of its last 10 games
at home beginning with the Bill Walsh Legacy Game against San Jose State
on Sept. 19. Following its game at Wake Forest, Stanford’s last three road
games will be at Oregon State (Oct. 10) and Arizona (Oct. 17) on back-toback weekends and at USC on Nov. 14.
Stanford did not play back-to-back home games last season. The 2009
schedule has the Cardinal playing three straight home games against San
Jose State, Washington (Sept. 26) and UCLA (Oct. 3) in addition to playing
consecutive home games against Arizona State (Oct. 24) and Oregon (Nov.
7). Stanford will wrap up the regular season with back-to-back home dates
against Cal (Nov. 21) and Notre Dame (Nov. 28).
More About the Schedule
Stanford welcomes Wake Forest to its non-conference schedule in 2009,
as the two universities will meet for the first time on Sept. 12 in WinstonSalem, NC. The Demon Deacons are scheduled for a stop in the Bay Area
during the 2010 campaign. Long time rivals San Jose State and Notre Dame
complement Stanford’s Pac-10 schedule.
Seven of Stanford’s 12 opponents on the 2009 schedule appeared in bowl
games last season, posting a perfect 7-0 record in the postseason.

The following players from last year’s team who had eligibility remaining are
no longer with the program: DT Andy Altman, QB L.D. Crow (transfer), CB
C.J. Easter, QB Jason Forcier, DE Levirt Griffin (medical retirement); DE

LB Nick Macaluso (six games, five starts; 20 tackles); DT Matt Masifilo (12
games, 4 starts; 21 tackles); DE Tom McAndrew (12 games; 20 tackles);
LB Will Powers (fifth-year senior; started final two games last season); and
FS Taylor Skaufel (started first four games and played in nine total before
breaking his right foot).
6
Key losses include DE Pannel Egboh (12 starts; 31 total tackles); LB Pat
Maynor (second leading tackler with 69); and LC Wopamo Osaisai (loss
felt also on special teams).
Special Teams Personnel
The Cardinal counts only punter David Green and long snapper Zach
Nolan among its returning starters on special teams…Green averaged 39.9
yards per punt (53 for 2,116) last season as a redshirt freshman and helped
Stanford finish first in the Pac-10 in net punting (37.7)…second year players
Nate Whitaker, Travis Golia and Adrian Rosenkranz are in contention
for the starting kicker’s duties as Stanford will look to replace kicker Aaron
Zagory, who converted 14-of-17 field goal attempts and 35-of-37 extra point
attempts last season.
Stanford returns its top punt returner in Doug Baldwin (18-155) and top
two kickoff returners in Jeremy Stewart (14-23.5 avg.) and Chris Owusu
(14-23.3 avg.)…Delano Howell is also expected to figure in the mix as a
kickoff returner.
Fifth-Year Seniors
Stanford has 13 fifth-year seniors on their spring roster, including FB Josh
Catron, RB Blaise Johnson, OT Matt Kopa, OT Chris Marinelli, QB
Tavita Pritchard on offense and CB Kris Evans, DE Erik Lorig, DE Tom
McAndrew, DT James McGillicuddy, S Bo McNally, LB Will Powers, LB
Clinton Snyder and DT Ekom Udofia on the defensive side of the ball.
Gerhart Close to Cracking Stanford’s Top-10
Career Rushing List
After rushing for a single-season record 1,136 yards on 210 carries last
season, senior Toby Gerhart enters the 2009 campaign with 1,651 career
rushing yards and needs just 117 more yards to tie Ray Handley (1,768;
1963-65) for 10th place on Stanford’s all-time career rushing list. Gerhart
should make a rapid ascent on the career top-10 list, as he needs 527 more
yards to tie Glyn Milburn (2,178; 1990-92) for fifth place all-time.
Gerhart became just the fifth Stanford back ever to reach the 1,000-yard
plateau (seventh time), joining Vardell (1,084 in 1991), Darrin Nelson (1,069 in
1977; 1,061 in ’78; 1,041 in ’81), Brad Muster (1,053 in ’86) and Jon Volpe
(1,027 in ’89).
Gerhart’s rushing total last season eclipsed Stanford’s previous singleseason rushing record of 1,084 yards set by “Touchdown” Tommy Vardell
in 1991. The Norco, Calif. native finished third in the Pac-10 last season in
rushing average with a 94.7 per game mark, trailing only Cal’s Jahvid Best
(131.7) and Oregon State’s Jacquizz Rodgers (113.9). Gerhart enjoyed a
Pac-10-best eight, 100-yard rushing games last season, capped off by a
career-high 148 yard effort against San Jose State.
He has rushed for 1,276 yards on 222 carries (98.2 per game) with 16
touchdowns over his last 13 collegiate contests, including nine, 100-yard
games.
Gerhart’s 15 rushing touchdowns last season were the second-highest
single-season total in school history. He tied a Stanford single-game record by
rushing for four TDs against Washington State—all in the first half.

STANFORD FOOTBALL AT A GLANCE
Smith Granted Sixth Year of Eligibility
Offensive tackle Allen Smith, who missed all of last season while recovering from a torn patella tendon in his left knee suffered in the third game of
the 2007 season against Oregon, has been granted a sixth year of eligibility
by the NCAA. Smith had made 23 consecutive starts on the offensive line
from 2005-07, but suffered the season-ending knee injury against the Ducks
on Sept. 15, 2007. As a third-year sophomore in 2006, Smith started all 12
games at left tackle and played in all 11 games and made eight starts as a
redshirt freshman in 2005, a year he was named to the All-Pac-10 Freshman
team.
The Tempe, Ariz. native was rated as the seventh-best offensive lineman in
the nation by SuperPrep coming out of Corona del Sol High School after his
senior season. He did not see action as a true freshman in 2003.
Improvement
In addition to the win column, Stanford has shown marked improvement
in several notable categories over the last two seasons under the direction of
head coach Jim Harbaugh compared to 2006, when the Cardinal finished
with a 1-11 overall record (1-8 Pac-10 conference):

Coaching Changes
Stanford added one new member to its full-time coaching staff during the
offseason, as Greg Roman joins the Cardinal staff where he’ll work with the
tight ends, defensive tackles and serve as running game coordinator. He
replaces Chris Dalman, who resigned after two years working as Stanford’s
offensive line coach. In addition, Tim Drevno was promoted from tight ends
coach to offensive line coach.
Roman, 36, brings 13 years of NFL coaching experience to his position at
Stanford. He most recently served as the assistant offensive line coach of the
Baltimore Ravens from 2006-07 and also spent four seasons on the coaching staff of the Houston Texans, where he served as the tight ends (2002-03)
and quarterbacks coach (2004-05). Roman began his coaching career with
the Carolina Panthers, where he served as a defensive and offensive assistant
coach from 1995-2001.

WWW.GOSTANFORD.COM
COACHING STAFF
Jim
HARBAUGH
BRADFORD M. FREEMAN
DIRECTOR OF FOOTBALL
In two shorts years, Jim Harbaugh has instilled a new sense of passion,
enthusiasm, energy and pride into Stanford’s football program that continues
to show marked improvement under his leadership.
From the day he was appointed to the position of the Bradford M. Freeman
Director of Football on December 19, 2006, Harbaugh set out to change the
culture and raise the expectations of a program that is in search of its first
winning season and bowl berth since 2001. His mantra of “We bow to no
program at Stanford University” was firmly indoctrinated into the minds of
everyone associated with the Stanford program.
He has wasted little time in serving notice Stanford is a program on the
rise. After inheriting a team that finished 1-11 in 2006, the Cardinal have been
one of the most improved teams in the Pac-10 Conference over the last two
seasons. In 2007, the Cardinal posted a 4-8 overall mark and a 3-6 record in
conference play, including an epic, 24-23 upset win over second-ranked USC
and a convincing victory over defending Pac-10 Conference co-champion
California, breaking the Bears five-game winning streak in the Big Game.
Last season, Stanford improved by one more game to finish 5-7 overall.
Only two last second road losses at UCLA and Oregon stood in the way of
the Cardinal and a bowl berth. Along the way, Stanford amassed its second
highest single-season school rushing total in school history and again proved
to be one of the most aggressive pass rushing teams in the conference,
as the Cardinal finished 11th nationally in sacks-per-game for the second
straight season.
The ebullient Harbaugh is more than ready to push the envelope a little
further this season as Stanford continues its journey to join the upper echelon
of a talent-rich conference in its quest to become perennial bowl participants
and championship contenders.
A tireless and passionate recruiter, Harbaugh and his staff landed a
nationally-recognized incoming freshman class that includes 10 high school
All-Americans and 19 players who were ranked in the top-50 in the nation at
their respective positions.
Harbaugh came to Stanford from the University of San Diego, where he
guided the Toreros to an impressive three-year overall record of 29-6 (.829),
including back-to-back 11-1 seasons that netted a pair of Division I-AA Mid
Major national titles in 2005 and ’06.
Success is no stranger to Harbaugh. A product of nearby Palo Alto High
School, he was one of the most highly-sought after recruits in the nation.
He enjoyed a storied career at the University of Michigan, where played
for legendary coach Bo Schembechler and helped lead the Wolverines to
three bowl appearances, garnering Big Ten Player of the Year and first team
All-America honors. As a professional, Harbaugh finished his career ranked
among the NFL’s top-50 in several passing categories and was named the
AFC’s Offensive Player of the Year in 1995. During his brief coaching career in
the NFL, he helped the Oakland Raiders reach the 2003 Super Bowl as the
team’s quarterbacks coach.
As a collegiate player, Harbaugh led the Maize and Blue to a 21-3-1 record

Lance Anderson enters his third season as Stanford’s recruiting coordinator and defensive tackles coach.
A tireless recruiter, Anderson played an instrumental role in Stanford’s
ability to sign 22 high school student-athletes to letters on intent to play

coach, he helped the Ravens improve to 17th in the NFL in total offense and
second in fewest sacks allowed with 17, setting a franchise record. Baltimore
also set team records for completion percentage (62.6%), third down conversions (96), fourth-down percentage (72.7%) and fewest turnovers (23). The
offensive line also helped quarterback Steve McNair set a team record for
pass completion percentage (63.0%) and most passes without an interception (162). In addition, left tackle Jonathan Ogden was voted to his 10thstraight Pro Bowl.
Prior to joining the staff in Baltimore, Roman enjoyed a four-year coaching
stint with the Houston Texans, serving as the team’s tight ends (2002-03)
and quarterbacks coach (2004-05). As tight ends coach, Roman tutored
Billy Miller, who led the Texans with 91 receptions over two seasons. He also
guided former 2002 NFL first round draft pick David Carr, who had his best
season under Roman in 2004 when he passed for 3,531 yards and earned
an 83.1 quarterback rating.
Roman launched his coaching career with the Carolina Panthers in 1995,
the team’s inaugural season in the NFL, when he was named the strength and
conditioning assistant/defensive quality control coach, while also working with
the defensive backs and the linebackers on the defensive side. In 1996, the
Panthers set a NFL record for most wins by an expansion team, as Carolina
won the NFC West crown and advanced to the NFC Championship game.
He moved to the offensive side of the ball as Carolina’s offensive quality control coach for two seasons (1997-98) before assuming the role of offensive
assistant for the 1999 and 2000 campaigns. As the team’s offensive assistant, he worked with both the run-and-pass game strategy and implementation, helping the Panthers finish second in NFL in passing offense and fifth in
yards per rush. Roman worked as the team’s assistant offensive line coach in
his final season with the Panthers in 2001.
A three-year letterwinner and two-year starting defensive lineman at John
Carroll University from 1990-93, Roman earned All-Ohio conference honorable mention status following his senior season in which he recorded 80 tackles and six sacks. He also helped lead a defense that allowed a league-low 98
points in 10 games and enabled the Blue Streaks to capture a share of the
OAC championship. Roman finished his collegiate career with 145 tackles,
20.0 tackles-for-loss and 9.5 sacks.
During his junior year at John Carroll, Roman participated in Project
H.O.P.E. (Helping Others Through Physical Education) which aids the developmentally disabled in northeast Ohio.

David
SHAW
OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR
WIDE RECEIVERS
Former Stanford standout David Shaw enters his second season on
the Cardinal coaching staff as the team’s offensive coordinator and wide
receiver’s coach.
Since Shaw took over the reigns of Stanford’s offense, the Cardinal has
more than doubled its scoring output and touchdown total from the 2006
season, tripled its rushing total and has seen dramatic increase in its total
offense production.
Last season, Stanford was one of the most efficient teams in the nation
once inside the red zone, where it converted on 39 of 43 (91%) trips inside
the 20-yard line. In addition, the Cardinal finished second in the Pac-10
Conference in rushing offense, averaging 199.6 yards per game.
Shaw came to Stanford along with current head coach Jim Harbaugh from
the University of San Diego, where he spent the 2006 season coaching the
nation’s top-ranked Division I-AA offense as the passing game coordinator
and wide receivers coach. Under his guidance, the high-powered Torero
offense helped USD capture the Pioneer League championship and NCAA
Division I-AA Mid-Major national title.
The 2006 squad finished 11-1 overall and led all NCAA Division I-AA
teams in passing offense (293.3 ypg), total offense (494.25 ypg) and scoring
offense (42.83 ppg). Quarterback Josh Johnson was one of four offensive
All-Americans on the team and led all NCAA Division I-AA quarterbacks in
passing efficiency (169.0 quarterback rating), touchdown passes (34, coleader), points responsible for (24.33 ppg) and total offense (336.7 ypg), while
throwing for 3,320 yards to also lead the country and running for another 721
on the ground. He added 11 rushing touchdowns and even caught one TD
pass.
Shaw had coached the previous nine seasons in the NFL with the
Philadelphia Eagles (1997), Oakland Raiders (1998-2001) and Baltimore
Ravens (2002-05).
Shaw’s most recent coaching job in the NFL with Baltimore included a stint
as the quarterbacks and wide receivers coach from 2002-04 before working
solely with the wide receivers in 2005. His tenure included a 2003 campaign
that reaped an AFC North title and a 10-6 regular season record. Derrick
Mason set a new franchise record with 86 receptions under Shaw’s tutelage
in 2005 when he also posted the third-biggest season to date in terms of
receiving yards with 1,073. Mark Clayton set a franchise rookie record for
receptions in 2005 when he caught 44 balls for 471 yards.
After three seasons of quality control with the Oakland Raiders from
1998-2000, Shaw moved into the role of quarterbacks coach in 2001 as the
Raiders won a second straight AFC West title and finished the regular season
with a 10-6 mark. Quarterback Rich Gannon made the NFL Pro Bowl for the
second straight season and ended up as the game’s MVP. Gannon had the
third-most prolific campaign of his 16-year pro career during the 2001 regular
season, throwing for 3,828 yards on 361-of-549 passing (65.8%).
Shaw got his start in the NFL in quality control with the Philadelphia Eagles
in 1997.
His first two seasons of coaching came in the collegiate ranks at Western
Washington, where he coached the outside linebackers in 1995 and the tight
ends in 1996.
His father, Willie, was an assistant coach at Stanford from 1974-76 and
again from 1989-91. He coached for a total of 33 seasons, including 15 in
the NFL with the Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings, New
Orleans Saints, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams.
Shaw was a four-year letterwinner (1991-94) at Stanford as a receiver. He
was a member of Stanford’s 1991 Aloha Bowl team coached by Dennis Green
that finished the season with an 8-4 mark and was the third-highest scoring
team in school history. He was also on the Cardinal’s 1992 Blockbuster Bowl
winning squad coached by Bill Walsh that had a 10-3 overall mark. Shaw
finished his Stanford career with 57 catches for 664 yards and five touchdowns. Shaw also competed in a varsity track meet and a varsity basketball
game while at Stanford before graduating in 1995 with a bachelor’s degree
in sociology.
David was also a three-sport athlete as a prep at James Logan High
School in Union City, California.
David and his wife Kori reside in Palo Alto with their two children Carter
and Keegan.

Former Western Kentucky standout Willie Taggart begins his third season
on the Stanford coaching staff as running backs coach.
Last season, Taggart was at the helm of the Cardinal running game that
finished second in the Pac-10 Conference in rushing offense, averaging 199.6
yards a game on the ground. Stanford’s season rushing total of 2,395 yards
was the second-highest mark in school history, trailing only the 1949 squad
that finished with 2,481 yards on the ground.
In addition, Taggart’s work with Toby Gerhart helped the junior rush for a
single-season school recod of 1,136 yards last season, as Gerhart became
just the fifth running back in school history to go over the 1,000-yard mark.
Gerhart teamed with backfield mate Anthony Kimble (717 yards) to form the
most production single-season running back tandem in school history.
Prior to his arrival at Stanford, Taggart spent the previous eight seasons
on the Western Kentucky coaching staff (1999-2006) and helped guide the

worked with current Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh in his first three
seasons of coaching from 1999-2001. Taggart started his coaching career
as Western Kentucky’s wide receivers coach in 1999 before working with
the quarterbacks from 2000-06. He was also the co-offensive coordinator in
2001 and ’02, helping lead the Hilltoppers to the Division I-AA national championship in ’02, and was promoted to assistant head coach in 2003.
Under Taggart’s guidance, quarterback Justin Haddix set school career
records with 8,890 yards of total offense, a 57.1 completion percentage, 50
touchdowns and a 137.28 pass efficiency rating. Haddix also finished his
career ranked second all-time on the Hill with 541 completions and 7,929
yards passing. As a senior, he earned All-Gateway Football Conference honorable mention recognition for the second year in a row after completing a
career-high 171 of his 279 passes for 2,186 yards – the third-highest singleseason total in school history at the time – and 14 touchdowns. He ranked
second in the league in passing average, third in total offense and fifth in
passing efficiency. Haddix was also a Second Team All-GFC selection in 2004
while picking up the league’s Freshman of the Year award in 2003.
Taggart helped coach an offensive unit that set school records for points
(432), total yards (5,479) and first downs (263) en route to the 2002 NCAA
Division I-AA national championship. The Hilltoppers ranked second in the
nation in pass efficiency and sixth in rushing, and averaged 38.8 points per
contest in four playoff victories.
In Taggart’s first year calling plays in 2000, WKU ran for 293.4 yards per
contest, leading the Gateway Football Conference and ranking second in the
country in the category. The Toppers averaged 33.0 points per game and led
the Ohio Valley Conference in rushing for the second straight year as WKU
claimed the league title and advanced to the quarterfinals of the I-AA playoffs.
In his first season in 1999, WKU ranked eighth in the nation and first in the
conference in rushing.
Taggart’s efforts helped WKU quarterbacks earn honorable mention allconference accolades in three consecutive seasons – Jason Johnson (2000),
Donte Pimpleton (2001) and Jason Michael (2002).
Taggart also spent his collegiate playing days at Western Kentucky, where
he became the top rushing quarterback in Division I-AA history with 3,997
yards by the end of his career, which was also a WKU standard for all runners. In addition, he broke the school record for points at Western Kentucky
with 280.
In each of his last two collegiate seasons, he was a finalist for the prestigious Walter Payton Award which is an honor given annually to the top offensive player in I-AA football. Taggart finished fourth in the balloting in 1997 and
seventh as a senior the following year. An All-American as a senior, he was
also the 1998 I-AA Independents’ Offensive Player of the Year. Taggart was
recruited to WKU by Jim Harbaugh to play for his father, Jack.
He was only the third WKU athlete in the past half-century to hold down
the quarterback slot for the Hilltoppers four straight years. Taggart – who set
11 WKU school records for rushing and scoring – had his jersey retired on
October 23, 1999.

Stanford Football APR Rate Highest
in the Country
In the Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores released last May by
the NCAA shows Stanford’s football program to have achieved the
highest rating among all teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision over a
four-year period beginning in 2003-04.
Stanford registered a score of 986, placing the Cardinal first
among Football Bowl Subdivision programs, ahead of the U.S. Naval
Academy (979), Duke and Rutgers (977 each), the U.S. Air Force
Academy (976), Rice (975), Boston College (972), along with Notre
Dame, Northwestern and Miami, Fla. (all at 969).
The Academic Progress Report, now in its fourth year, measures
the eligibility, retention and graduation of student-athletes competing
on every Division I sports team. It also serves as a predictor of graduation success. The most recent APR scores are based on a multi-year
rate that averages scores from the 2003-04, 2004-05, 2005-06 and
2006-07 academic years.
All 35 athletics programs at Stanford University exceeded the
NCAA’s APR standards with five Cardinal teams (women’s golf,
women’s gymnastics, women’s swimming, women’s volleyball and
women’s water polo programs) receiving perfect 1000 scores. Only
Notre Dame (8), Duke (8) and Boston College (7) had more programs
post more perfect scores than Stanford.
Near-perfect scores came in men’s golf (991), men’s volleyball
(995), men’s water polo (992), women’s basketball (990), women’s
cross country (995), women’s lacrosse (993), women’s soccer (992)
and softball (992).

SEASON IN REVIEW
2008 Season in Review Notebook
The Final Record
Stanford finished the 2008 season with an overall mark of 5-7 and tied for
sixth in the Pac-10 with a 4-5 conference mark. It marked Stanford’s seventh
straight losing season, however, the Cardinal have improved on its win total
each of the last two seasons after going 1-11 in 2006. Of Stanford’s seven
losses last season, three came by a touchdown or less, including a pair of
last second losses at UCLA and Oregon.
Close Calls
Half of Stanford’s games last season were decided by eight points or less,
including two contests (Arizona and UCLA) that were decided by three points
or less. Three of Stanford’s last six games were decided on last second
touchdowns. Stanford used a one-yard touchdown run by Toby Gerhart with
0:25 left to play to defeat Arizona, 24-23 on Oct. 11. Against UCLA, Stanford
held a 20-16 lead with 2:31 left, only to see the Bruins drive 87 yards in 11
plays, culminating in a seven-yard game-winning TD pass from Kevin Craft to
Cory Harkey with 0:10 left. Against Oregon, Anthony Kimble’s three-yard TD
run gave Stanford a 28-27 lead with 2:18 left, but the Ducks drove 74 yards
in 11 plays and scored the game-winning touchdown with 0:06 left.
The Running Game
Stanford’s final rushing total of 2,395 yards was the second-highest singleseason mark in school history, trailing only the 1949 squad that finished with
a school-record 2,481 yards. The Cardinal finished second in the Pac-10 in
rushing offense, averaging 199.6 yards a game in 12 contests. Previous to
last season, Stanford had not finished higher than ninth in rushing offense in
the previous five seasons and had averaged more than 100 yards per game
on the ground just twice in the last six campaigns. Stanford’s final rushing
total was 1,061 yards more than it gained the previous year on the ground
and 1,614 more than it gained in 2006.
Gerhart Breaks Stanford’s Single-Season Rushing
Record
Toby Gerhart rushed for a Stanford single-season record 1,136 yards on
210 carries last season, breaking the previous single-season mark of 1,084
yards set by “Touchdown” Tommy Vardell in 1991
Gerhart became just the fifth Stanford back ever to reach the 1,000-yard
plateau (seventh time), joining Vardell (1,084 in 1991), Darrin Nelson (1,069 in
1977; 1,061 in ’78; 1,041 in ’81), Brad Muster (1,053 in ’86) and Jon Volpe
(1,027 in ’89).
Gerhart finished third in the Pac-10 last season in rushing average with
a 94.7 per game mark, trailing only Cal’s Jahvid Best (131.7) and Oregon
State’s Jacquizz Rodgers (113.9). Gerhart enjoyed a Pac-10-best eight, 100yard rushing games last season, capped off by a career-high 148 yard effort
against San Jose State.
He has rushed for 1,276 yards on 222 carries (98.2 per game) with 16
touchdowns over his last 13 collegiate contests, including nine, 100-yard
game.
His 15 rushing touchdowns last season were the second-highest singleseason total in school history. He tied a Stanford single-game record by rushing for four TDs against Washington State—all in the first half.
Kimble Finishes Career in Eighth Place on
Stanford’s All-Time Career Rushing List
Fifth-year senior Anthony Kimble finished his collegiate career ranked
eighth on Stanford’s all-time career rushing chart with 1,940 yards. His 18
career rushing touchdowns tied him with College Football Hall of Famer
Bobby Grayson (1933-35) for sixth in school annals.
Kimble enjoyed a terrific senior season that netted a career-best 717 yards,
averaging a robust 6.0 yards per carry (120 attempts). He enjoyed three,
100-yard games during the course of the season, capped off by a 157-yard
effort at Washington, which ranked as the 21st-best rushing performance in
school history.
Tom Keiser Named 2008 Freshman All-American
Stanford defensive end Tom Keiser, who played in all 12 games last
season as a redshirt freshman and totaled 24 tackles, was earned first team
freshman All-America honors by the Football Writers Association of America
and Sporting News. He also tabbed second team freshman All-America
honors by CollegeFootballNews.com, in addition to earning honorable mention All-Pac-10 marks. A key contributor to Stanford’s pass rush that finished
fourth in the Pac-10 in sacks-per-game, Keiser finished with a team-high
6.0 sacks, logging multiple sack games against San Jose State, UCLA and
Washington State. He also ranked third in the conference in forced fumbles
(0.25).
Sacks and Tackles-for-Loss
Stanford finished the 2008 season ranked fourth in the Pac-10 and tied
for 11th nationally averaging 2.83 sacks per game (34 total). Stanford also
ranked fifth in the conference and 47th nationally in tackles-for-loss (6.08;

24-23 Homecoming win over Arizona last season.

TCU, Baldwin scored his first career touchdown on a 35-yard reverse in the
second quarter. Later in the game, he returned a punt 35 yards for an apparent touchdown, but was ruled to have stepped out of bounds on the 13-yard
line. Against San Jose State, Baldwin was on the receiving end of a 38-yard
pass from Pritchard, only to have the ball knocked out of his hands and

STANFORD UNIVERSITY
Stanford University
Stanford
University
at a Glance
O
n October 1, 1891, the 465 new students who
were on hand for opening day ceremonies at
Leland Stanford Junior University greeted Leland and
Jane Stanford enthusiastically, with a chant they had
made up and rehearsed only that morning. Wah-hoo!
Wah-hoo! L-S-J-U! Stanford! Its wild and spirited tone
symbolized the excitement of this bold adventure. As
a pioneer faculty member recalled, “Hope was in every
heart, and the presiding spirit of freedom prompted us
to dare greatly.”
For the Stanford’s on that day, the university was the
realization of a dream and a fitting tribute to the memory
of their only son, who had died of typhoid fever weeks
before his sixteenth birthday. Far from the nation’s center
of culture and unencumbered by tradition or ivy, the new
university drew students from all over the country: many
from California; some who followed professors hired from
other colleges and universities; and some simply seeking
adventure in the West. Though there were many difficulties during the first months – housing was inadequate,
microscopes and books were late in arriving from the East
– the first year foretold of greatness. As Jane Stanford
wrote in the summer of 1892, “Even our fondest hopes
have been realized.”
Ideas of “Practical Education”
Governor and Mrs. Stanford had come from families of
modest means and had built their way up through a life of
hard work. So it was natural that their first thoughts were
to establish an institution where young men and women
could “grapple successfully with the practicalities of life.” As
their thoughts matured, these ideas of “practical education”
enlarged to the concept of producing cultured and useful
citizens who were well-prepared for professional success.
Nearly 116 years later, the university still enjoys the
original 8,180 acres (almost 13 square miles) of grassy
fields, eucalyptus groves, and rolling hills that were the
Stanford’s generous legacy, as well as the Quadrangle of
“long corridors with their stately pillars” at the center of
campus. It is still true, as the philosopher William James
said, during his stint as a visiting professor, that the climate is “so friendly ... that every morning wakes one fresh
for new amounts of work.”

Current Perspectives
In other ways, the university has changed tremendously on its way to recognition as one of the world’s great
universities. At the hub of a vital and diverse Bay Area,
Stanford is less than hour’s drive south of San Francisco
and just a few minutes north of the Silicon Valley, an area
dotted with computer and high technology firms largely
spawned by the university’s faculty and graduates. On
campus, students and faculty enjoy new libraries, modern
laboratories, tremendous sports and recreation facilities,
and comfortable residences. Contemporary sculpture, as
well as pieces from the Stanford Museum’s extensive collection of sculpture by Auguste Rodin, is placed throughout the campus, providing unexpected pleasures at many
turns. At the Stanford Medical Center, world-renowned
for its research, teaching, and patient care, scientists
and physicians are searching for answers to fundamental
questions about health and disease. Ninety miles down

the coast, at Stanford’s Hopkins Marine Station on the
Monterey Bay, scientists are working to better understand
the mechanisms of evolution, human development, and
ecological systems.
The university is organized into seven schools: Earth
Sciences, Education, Engineering, the Graduate School of
Business, Humanities and Sciences, Law and Medicine. In
addition, there are more than 30 interdisciplinary centers,
programs, and research laboratories – including the Hoover
Institution on War, Revolution and Peace; the Institute for
International Studies; the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center;
and the Stanford Center for the Study of Families, Children
and Youth – where faculty from a wide range of fields bring
different perspectives to bear on issues and problems.
Stanford’s Overseas Studies Program offers students in all
fields remarkable opportunities for study abroad, with campuses in Australia, Beijing, Berlin, Cape Town, Florence,
Kyoto, Madrid, Moscow, Oxford, Paris, and Santiago.
Stanford People
By any measure, Stanford’s faculty – which numbers
just over 1,800 – is one of the most distinguished in
the nation. As of the June of 2007, the faculty included
18 Nobel Laureates, four Pulitzer Prize winners, 24
MacArthur Fellows, 21 recipients of the National Medal
of Science, three National Medley of Technology recipients, 228 members of the National Academy of Arts and
Sciences, 135 members of the National Academy of
Sciences, 83 National Academy of Engineering members,
29 members of the National Academy of Education, seven Wolf Foundation Prize winners, seven winners of the
Koret Foundation Prize and three Presidential Medal of
Freedom winners. Yet beyond their array of honors, what
truly distinguishes Stanford faculty is their commitment to
sharing knowledge with their students. The great majority
of professors teach undergraduates both in introductory
lecture classes and in small advanced seminars.
Currently 14881 students, of which 6689 are undergraduates, live and study on campus. A little more than
40 percent come from California, but all 50 states and
approximately 68 countries are represented as well.
Among undergraduates, approximately 55 percent are
African American, Asian American, International, Mexican
American, Native American, Native Hawaiian or Other
Hispanic in ethnicity. Like the faculty, the Stanford student

body is distinguished. Approximately 10 students apply to
Stanford for every place in the freshman class with 89% of
those admitted finishing in the top 10% of their high school
class. Ninety-four Stanford students have been named
Rhodes Scholars, 74 have been selected Marshall Award
winners, and 49 have been chosen Truman Scholars.
Nearly 90 percent of graduating seniors plan to attend
graduate or professional schools. Stanford students also
shine in a tremendous array of activities outside the classroom – from student government to music, theater, and
journalism. Through the Haas Center for Public Service,
students participate in many community service activities,
such as tutoring programs for children in nearby East Palo
Alto, the Hunger Project, and the Arbor Free Clinic.
In the athletic arena, Stanford students have enjoyed
tremendous success as well. Stanford fields teams in 36
Division I varsity sports (15 men, 20 women, 1 co-ed). Of
Stanford’s 95 NCAA titles (107 national), 55 have been captured since 1990, by far the most in the nation. Thirty-eight
of Stanford’s athletes and coaches participated in the 1992

Olympics in Barcelona, 49 competed in Atlanta at the 1996

Sydney, and 43 Stanford associates competed at the 2004
Games in Athens. Intramural and club sports are also popular; over 1,000 students take part in the club sports program,
while participation in the intramural program has reached
9,000, with many students active in more than one sport.
Looking Ahead
In her address to the Board of Trustees, in 1904, Jane
Stanford said, “. . . Let us not be afraid to outgrow old
thoughts and ways, and dare to think on new lines as to
the future of the work under our care.”
Her thoughts echo in the words of former Stanford
President Gerhard Casper, who has said, “The true university must reinvent itself every day . . . At Stanford, these
are days of such reconsideration and fresh support for our
fundamental tasks – teaching, learning, and research.”
