Day Seven: Marinelli Debuts

We last saw him on December 2, 2006 in Stanford's season finale. 6'7" Chris Marinelli has been on the shelf since, but on Sunday the redshirt sophomore right tackle made his 2007 debut participating in team action. The big Bostonian is a shot in the arm for the offensive line, and his unbridled excitement to be back on the field is carried with the same brute force as his play.

Stanford Football took a step back on offense and defense Wednesday, with new questions at positions lacking depth and experience.
