Bootleg Video: Patrick Danahy

The one huge subtraction Stanford faces from the 2004 offense is tight end Alex Smith. But sophomore <b>Patrick Danahy</b> is making a statement this spring with his smooth receiving and strong all-around game to soften the blow. The rising tight end performer talked with us on camera after Friday's practice about his ascension, changes in the tight end position, his double dip of coaching, and more.

Danahy talks with The Bootleg about how he has successfully launched himself to the #1 position in a talented tight end corps.  He credits Alex Smith for a blueprint, but also has some history in high school in the passing game.  Danahy also talks about the complex and changed demands this year for tight ends, including a different coaching structure with both John McDonell and Todd Husak.
