Bootleg Video: Wopamo Osaisai

Since his recruitment and high school days, Cardinal fans have been anxious to see the speed of Wopamo Osaisai on the football field. He made a big splash on the track last spring, but now as a redshirt freshman he is seeing his first game action on the gridiron. The young cornerback is still learning his defensive craft but last Saturday in Pullman made a huge play on special teams.

As Washington State mounted a comeback bid in the fourth quarter last Saturday, they forced Stanford to punt with just over a minute to go in the game.  Jay Ottovegio's punt was deep, leaving room for Cougar return dynamo Michael Bumpus to start a return.  But Osaisai blazed down the field and made a lightning solo tackle on the 14-yard line.  It was the biggest play of the redshirt freshman's young Cardinal career, and it showcased his renowned sprinter's speed.  He talks with us about the play and what he brings to special teams in this his first year of play at Stanford.  Osaisai made fans cheer last spring and summer while he broke school records on the track, and now he is aiming to make his mark on the gridiron.
