Why I chose Stanford?
“I chose Stanford because of the tight end resume that Stanford has created in the past couple of years, and the education was very attractive because of the opportunities it can lead to after college.”

The game I watched which made me first believe that I wanted to go to Stanford:
“After the 2012 Stanford vs. Oregon game, I realized that Stanford was the team I wanted to be a part of. As one watched that game, the Stanford players just looked like a bunch of hard workers that never gave up, and that reminded me of my high school football team.”
