Bootleg Video: Jon Alston

To match his exciting explosiveness and athleticism on the field, Jon Alston is every bit as open and emotionally honest when he speaks with you. The fifth-year senior outside linebacker is fresh off a three-sack performance in Tucson and talks about why his season is coming together. Also: the Arizona State game of a year ago, the Sun Devils' 2005 offense, Walt Harris and more...

Alston took the microphone on Monday in front of the assembled Bay Area media, speaking not only on his emerging health and playmaking performances on the field, but also on the leadership he and others are trying to take for this Stanford team.  The fifth-year senior outside linebacker has worn his heart on his sleeve every time we have talked with him during his stay on The Farm, and Alston again spoke candidly in this setting about the changes that he and the Cardinal are trying to make under Walt Harris.  Enjoy the 12 minutes of this media Q&A session, ranging from the 2004 Arizona State game's pain to the new challenges that Sun Devil offense will bring on Saturday to classmate Babatunde Oshinowo to turnover talk, and more much.
