    Tradition Jersey Numbers
    While most school retire the jersey numbers of their great players,
    Stanford instituted a new tradition in 2010- giving the jersey
    number of past greats to prominent members of the current team.
    Below are some of the players who have had the honor of wearing
    these special jersey numbers.


    [​IMG]
    Honoring John Elway - Although Elway never led his team to a bowl game, he had an accomplished college career. In his four seasons (1979–1982) at Stanford, he completed 774 passes for 9,349 yards and 77 touchdowns. Elway's 24 touchdown passes in 1982 led the nation, and he graduated with nearly every Stanford and Pacific-10 career record for passing and total offense. He won Pac-10 Player of the Year honors in 1980 and 1982, was a consensus All-American, and finished second in Heisman Trophy balloting as a senior. In 2000, Elway was enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame. Given to a QB.

    [​IMG]
    Honoring John Brodie - Played at Stanford from 1954 through 1956. He was named first team All-America quarterback and led the nation in passing and total offense. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1986. Given to a QB.

    [​IMG]
    Honoring Jim Plunkett - Plunkett's arrival ushered in an era of wide-open passing, pro-style offenses in the Pac-8, a trend that has continued to the present. His successful junior campaign saw him set league records for touchdown passes (20), passing yards (2,673) and total offense (2,786). This display of offensive firepower led Washington State coach Jim Sweeney to call Plunkett "The best college football player I've ever seen." In his senior year he led Stanford to their first Rose Bowl appearance since 1952, a game that ended with a 27-17 Stanford victory over the favored Ohio State Buckeyes. With eighteen passing and three rushing touchdowns added to his 2,715 passing yards on the year (which broke his own conference record), Plunkett was awarded the 1970 Heisman Trophy given annually to the top college football player in the country. Though he had set so many records on the season, 1970 had been the "Year of the Quarterback," and Plunkett beat out Notre Dame's Joe Theismann and Archie Manning of Ole Miss to win the award. He was the first Latino to win the Heisman Trophy. Aside from the Heisman, he captured the Maxwell Award for the nation's best quarterback. He was into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1990. This number will be given to a QB.

    [​IMG]
    Honoring Ernie Nevers - An All-America who played in the 1925 Rose Bowl against the University of Notre Dame and the famous Four Horsemen backfield. He played all 60 minutes in the game and rushed for 114 yards, more yardage than all the Four Horsemen combined. He was named the 1925 Rose Bowl Player of the Game. Former coach Glenn Scobey "Pop" Warner called Nevers "the football player without a fault". Nevers often was compared to Jim Thorpe. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1951. His number is given to a Running Back.

    [​IMG]
    Honoring Ken Margerum - A consensus All-America wide receiver at Stanford in 1979 and 1980, Margerum was known for his acrobatic catches and sure hands. At Stanford, Margerum was a favorite target of John Elway. He held the Pac-10 record for career touchdowns with 32 until 2006 and held the Stanford record for receiving yards (2,430) until that mark was broken in 1999. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2009. This number is given to a Cardinal receiver.

    [​IMG]
    Honoring Chuck Taylor - Taylor was an All-America guard in 1942. He also won the Rose Bowl in 1940. After serving in the Navy during WWII, he returned to Stanford as freshman coach in 1948, and returned again to Stanford as head coach in 1951. His 1951 team went 9-2, was in the Rose Bowl, and earned Taylor election as Coach of the Year. He was age 31, the youngest man ever named Coach of the Year. In seven years his Stanford teams had a 40-29-2 record. He left for another business and returned to Stanford again to serve as director of athletics 1963 to 1971. Stanford again played in the Rose Bowl, and Taylor was heralded as a man who had gone to the Rose Bowl as a player, head coach, and athletic director. Given to an offensive lineman.

    [​IMG]
    Honoring Jeff Siemon - Graduated from Stanford University in 1972, where he starred as a linebacker, playing on two Rose Bowl winning teams. At Stanford, he earned the Silver anniversary Dick Butkus award his senior year as the nation's top linebacker, and the Pop Warner Award as the top senior player on the West Coast. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006. Given to a linebacker.

    [​IMG]
    Honoring Bob "Horse" Reynolds - During his time, Stanford was the dominant team on the Pacific Coast, appearing in the New Year's Day Rose Bowl game in each of his three years. Reynolds established a record that has never been matched by playing in every minute of three consecutive Rose Bowl games. In each of those games, Reynold played all 60 minutes on offense and defense without substitution. He was a consensus All-American at the tackle position in 1934. In 1935, he was again selected as a first-team All-American tackle by the New York Sun. The profile of Reynolds at the College Football Hall of Fame referred to Reynols as "the plow which dug deep furrows in enemy defenses," and also noted that he "knocked people down like they were wooden statues." He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1961. The number is given to a Cardinal offensive lineman.

    [​IMG]
    Honoring Paul Wiggin - A Stanford defensive lineman from 1954 to 1957, he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2005. Wiggin also coached the Cardinals from 1980 to 1983. Given to a defensive lineman.

    [​IMG]
    Honoring Bill McColl - A defensive end and tight end, he was a two time consensus All-American and third runner up in the 1951 Heisman Trophy voting. In 1951, he was the first person to receive the W.J. Voit Memorial Trophy as the outstanding football player on the Pacific Coast. Bill was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1973. His number is given to either a TE or a DE.

    you've been doing a great job recruiting Bly. Out of all the guys you've signed, who you think is ready to contribute right away and who are you most excited about?

    most of them are just for depth. i'm actually pretty lucky with how my team shook out personnel wise - very young for the most part with only a few key players graduating.

    MLB Porter might jump in right away as the second MLB, depending on his ratings. C Fuller might also be a solid backup at C or perhaps another position on the line.

    And McDonald is my kicker unless i get one in the offseason lol.

    First post has been updated with stats, award winners and trophies.

    Got some nice bumps in my recruiting pitches. I now have three green As (compared to only one the past two seasons), with Coach Prestige, Fan Base and Pro Potential all jumping to B+.
