[Please note that passing the test means that you passed the time for the "Line Group".... if you want to go faster, that is your choice, but you will not be awarded bonus points]


The Prizes:

1.) "Bragging rights" to your friends, loved ones, neighbors, co-workers....and most importantly, to the other former players who did not have the ability/courage/desire to attempt to pass the Stanford Football Conditioning Challenge.
 
2.) To all competitors....meaning you attempt to pass this conditioning challenge.....you will be automatically awarded one sideline pass for one home game of your choice:
 
San Jose State - Sept 19

Washington - Sept 26

UCLA - Oct 3

Arizona State - Oct 24

Oregon - Nov 7

Cal - Nov 21

Notre Dame - Nov 28


Please note that there is a limited number of sideline passes available, and that those who pass the conditioning test will be given first pick.
 
3.) To all competitors, a DVD copy of your conditioning performance, courtesy of Mike Gleeson. Something you will cherish for years and years to come.....and for liability reasons, we are forced to tape.
 
4.) To the competitors who do actually pass the test (meaning you made EACH and EVERY time minimum for each run), you will be awarded one pair of the 2009 Stanford Football Nike Travel Sweats (top and bottom)....which Jon Haskins has personally seen and reports are quite nice this year as compared to last year's marginal model.


5.) To the Ultimate Winner....the single person who finishes first in the 4th Quarter - 300-yard shuttle, they will be able to travel with the Stanford Football Team to an away game of their choice on the team charter plane (JetBlue), stay at the team hotel, eat with the team, be on the sidelines with the team, and come back to Stanford victorious after we conquer one of the following opponents:


Washington State - Sept. 5

Wake Forest - Sept 12

Oregon State - Oct. 10

Arizona - Oct. 17

USC - Nov. 14


Just to note....last year's Overall Winner was former QB Chad Hutchinson.


Also there is an optional game of "Peru" Ball....if you are not completely exhausted at the conclusion of the Conditioning Test and dinner with the team.
 
Good luck and please RSVP ASAP to:
