Terry Johnson (Saratoga, CA)
Randy, what are the most important things you've learned in your three years at Stanford?

Randy: Well, I've learned a lot of important things over the past three years, both on and off the field. First of all, I've adapted to the teaching style professors here at Stanford use, which has helped me receive better grades. On the other hand, it takes a while to learn our complex pro style offense here at Stanford. Over the past three years I've become comfortable with every play in our versatile playbook.

Michael Gildone (Rocklin, CA)
Randy, I currently attend your old high school of Del Oro. I am a sophomore now and I play JV football. I was wondering how to go about getting an athletic scholarship to a school like Stanford? It is great to see a Golden Eagle in action in college and on television. We usually watch all of your games, even last year. Good luck with the rest of your year.

Randy: First off, I'll be looking out for Gildone this year on the Del Oro JV football team. It's always nice to hear from loyal fans back home. Hopefully, you and your teammates have a terrific season. If your goal is to get an athletic scholarship to a school like Stanford, take advantage of the many extracurricular activities Del Oro offers, register for advanced classes (maybe even classes at Sierra College), and succeed both on the field and in the classroom. Best of luck to you!

Brian Karr & Nick Szakacs (Lemon Grove, CA)
We watched your first game at Washington State and we were interested on your thoughts about your first start. We would also like to know if you dedicated your first win as a starter to your fianc?e Monica? Congratulations on playing well in your starting debut. It's about time!

Randy: Patience has finally paid off. Good things come to those who wait. My first start went well, however it would have been nice to score in the second half. I didn't dedicate the game to anyone, nonetheless if I did dedicate the game to someone that special person would have been my fianc?e, Monica Stahr. You guys are right: IT'S ABOUT TIME! Oh ya, good luck at SDSU. That school will open doors to accomplish any goal in life. Go Vikes!

Vic Knudson (Anaheim, CA)
What aspects of the game did you pick up from your predecessors (Hutchinson, Husak and Borchard)? Best of luck to you and congratulations on your first win! Glad to see you running the show!

Randy: Hutchinson and Husak were great predecessors to follow. Hutch was an athlete who would do anything to win. Husak was the offensive wizard who hardly ever made a mistake. I learned a lot from those two guys. Thanks for the email!

Ingrid Linvingston (Reseda, CA)
Randy, how did if feel to walk out onto the field for your first series? What has been the most rewarding part of your experience on The Farm?

Randy: I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't a little nervous. In actuality, there were butterflies floating around in my stomach, however I was confident in my ability to perform well. When I step on to the playing field nothing but excitement flows through my body. I was extremely pumped up! The most rewarding part of my experience on The Farm will come at the end of the year when I receive my diploma from Stanford University.
