2009-'10 Honor Roll Finalists

In an annual tradition here at The Bootleg, we are proud to announce the 31 finalists for The Bootleg Honor Roll for the 2009/2010 academic year.

The criteria are as follows:
Each academic year, The Bootleg's Honor Roll will recognize the top ten Stanford student-athletes who have performed at an exceptional level, with athletic accomplishments that are both extraordinary and inspirational. While achieving athletic success, these athletes should also have displayed uncommon leadership, sportsmanship and respect towards their fellow teammates and opponents. Finally, these honorees' performances and actions should also demonstrate their love for their particular sport as well as their school pride, the famed "Spirit of Stanford."

Here are this year's 31 nominees -- the field was that deep that we couldn't cut to 30, listed alphabetically by gender and sport:
